|deby doo! not the brightest tb on the track....|
I worked him for another fifteen minutes, breaking down our dressage test into pieces and practicing them in various spots around the arena. Lots of trot to walk to free walk across the diagnol and back to walk and trot again. I reversed order for the trot to canter circles and started with the right, free walked across the diagnol, and did the trot to canter circles to the left and down the centerline from the left at C.
He still puts his periscope up every now and then, and he still gets quick when he gets flustered, but he is coming along soo well. If I can actually pull my head out of my ass long enough to participate in riding this Sunday, I think we'll actually go through a pretty nice test. Fingers crosssed!
