Today we worked on lateral work and transitions. He is concerned about the leg and sometimes over-reacts, so I am just going back to basics to help him understand what is required, which will help him be more confident and relax. Some nice work today.
Charlie pulled a suspensory last spring and has spent the summer recovering. He is now terrifically sound and back in work. That it is the very short synopsis of a long road. We are delighted to have him feeling better.
He is back in work and has been for several weeks. Today was transition day. We started out with walk halt transitions and moved on to trot walk trot transitions and went on to canter trot canter. He is getting more able to maintain his balance in all the transitions, which is fun for both of us. We ended up cantering through a grid of poles on the ground. fun.
