I'm too old for turning cartwheels but if I wasn't......
No rain and even a glimpse of the sun. The boys came in like lambs and I worked Chapsi and Moo on the lunge.
I used some cones to create a circle and worked Chapsi around the outside of them, he picked up the idea straight away on the right rein and as always took quite a few attempts to complete a circle to the left but he is massively improved in general on that tricky left rein and I'm pretty happy with where we are as he makes a pretty decent circle shape on both reins. We finished with some lighthearted liberty stuff and he was a star; he just makes me smile :-)
The best bit though was Moo, we loosened up as always with a little massage, moving him out from the shoulder and haunches etc. He was VERY laid back, almost lazy for him. He started to loosen up in the trot and just got on with the job, we worked lots of trannies, spirals and straight lines. Finally we cantered YAY on both reins and very relaxed with no arguments or head throwing. I'm so glad, I've been biding my time with the canter and all the work's finally paying off.
