I think I am stuck in a schooling rut again! Although, Basil has really begun to work in a good round shape and is soft and his bend is improving our movements are getting a bit repetitive. In walk and trot he feels really light in the hand and works beautifully. There is still a way to go with our canter work though!
We have been doing plenty of serpentines
As is changing the rein on the diagonal!
Basil and I are still working on balance to be able to trot 10 metre circles but it is getting better!
This exercise is good for practising your turns as on the square you really have to ride the corners and not just drift around them as we often tend to do! This exercise is best to perfect in walk first so that your horse understands you before progressing up to trot!
We will see how we get on with these over the next few weeks!
