Guys, we're totally knocking our 2016 goals out of the park. Yesterday we decided to do this:
l know, we're basically doing the Grand Prix
Yes he did actually "jump" it a few times, but then mostly just trotted/hopped over. Interesting thing is that regardless of direction, he wanted to land to the left each time. However, the quality of his right lead canter improved whereas his left was so-so...and it is usually the other way 'round.
I hope to do more of this over time - trainer and I both agreed, it was quite helpful...and fun!
