More hacking

I brought him in and brushed him.  He seemed almost dozy, he was so relaxed.  I tacked up and lunged him and he was near perfect.  I got on and rode and he stood really well for mounting and afterward.  Then we worked in the arena in all gaits, working on connection and stretching.  That went well and he even had some nice relaxed breaths in canter.

Rinse, graze in the round pen and done.  Very good day!
