My trainer rode Cupid twice in the week I was gone, and said he was very good though on one of the days he wasn't bending as well. She suggested I set up his next chiro appointment, I hadn't even realized it's been almost two months already.
|*I unbuckled his flash and stuck it through the D-ring, I don't actually ride like that!|
Another exercise we've done on the circle is changing my posting diagonal every few strides. This gets Cupid's attention and makes him slow down a little if he's rushing - especially useful after cantering when his trot is sometimes too quick.
We have been doing a few canter laps for conditioning, both for Cupid and I! Usually he starts out lazy and I have to keep him going so he doesn't drop into a trot, but sometimes he really starts getting into it.
I am hoping we might be able to do a dressage show in June! But it's coming up quick, I'm not sure I will feel ready....
