Lateral work and hacking

Kelly and Elsa, and Leo and I started with some flatwork in the arena.  We started a little late because we helped catch Moondancer who decided to go on a trot about the property and was having a grand time of it.

Leo was a little slow off the leg in his lateral work, especially leg yield to the left, but he got better and better with patient work.  As a result of that suppling, the right lead canter was very nice.

Then the four of us went out on a hack to the cemetery.  He was delightful.  His tempo and rhythm are a treat to ride and we all had a wonderful time!  Afterwards he got a nice rinse.  I offered him a chance to roll in the arena, but he was more into going into his stall and having supper, which I couldn’t argue with!
