Real connection

Today we went around in circles with me focusing on keeping my hands steady and quiet, and sending him forward from my leg. This is something I do every day, but today it is all I did. In walk on a 20 m circle until he came over his back. Then in trot on a 20 m circle until he relaxed into my hand and allowed me to put a leg on without over-reacting.

There was some actually pretty nice work to the right in trot and some moments of nice work to the left, which is his weaker side. Canter work is coming into focus.
