Well, it was (and still is ) a fantastic day!!! 17 degrees with a lovely light breeze.
Brought Tyler in and let him have a munch while I was watching the other lesson.
Tacked him up and went to the school.
Jill as usual was lovely. We wrmed up in walk, trot and canter. Then started the hard (er) for me work. Halt - Trot - Halt transitions, walk - canter - walk then Halt - Canter - Halt transitions. Tyler was a pro at it and I felt Ok about it, even though I have never done the canter halt/walk transitions before.
Worked on circles, both in trot and canter with 20m, then 10 m then 8 m circles which Tyler was comfortable with. His canter was lovely. Better than before. Controlled and rolling.
He felt as if he was working better.
Did some bending - i.e head facing inside of school with body straight. Tyler had no problems and we even attempted leg wielding.
Tyler must have had quite a high schooling background as although I was asking things he had not done for a while they seemed to come to him very well. the pictures dont show him workign in his full outline, but his back end was workng sooo hard. We did manage some lovely work I have to say!"!
Was sooooo proud of my munchkin!!!!!
We finished off and Tyler got a cold bath due to him sweating. He will be knackered. Popping up to check him tonight, but fortunately he is off tomorrow as I am working. a light hack on Saturday I think.
Have another lesson booked for next week. Can't wait!!!
Here are the pics. Critique is fine.
