It was a beautiful evening for a hack out and we started with a brisk walk down and trot back up the hill. Then we did canter work in the meadow, including walk canter, which is a really good exercise for him in muscle building and might be good for you for really learning about positioning the horse’s body for depart. He did very well.
Then we hacked in the hickory grove and he mentioned that he would like to eat the thistle flowers on the way home. Some horses love them!
