This week, Cody has been working on Bend at the Walk, Bending Transitions, Vertical Flexion at the Walk & Trot, Shoulder In/Out, Two Tracking, Stopping & Backing, Neck Reining, & the Cloverleaf Exercise. He's been getting softer & more accepting at the walk & trot but still has moments of resistance at the lope, particularly on his left side.
Next week, we'll continue working on these exercises to further his softness & acceptance. I'm also going to begin to advance him into a shank bit & see how he does with that.

Next week's update will be posted on Friday.
I do my best to get these updates posted in a timely manner, but it's not uncommon for me to be outside until after dark, depending on the weather, my schedule, & who gets worked when so updates will sometimes be posted quite late in the evening. Don't be alarmed if you don't see your update right away. In rare cases, I may have to push them until the next morning, but I'll reach out & let you know if so.
