This week was sure a hot & humid one, but saw good progress for Max.
He was a bit tender after his trim going down the road so we stayed in the arena this week.
We've continued building upon our previous exercises. I've begun asking him to hold Vertical Flexion for longer & that's gone very well. Draw to a Stop from all gaits has seen improvement & he's beginning to Back quite nicely, too!
We've also added Sidepassing on the Fence. At first, he really wanted to offer to Back; however, once he figured out where the release was, he figured it out quite quickly.
Today was bath day & he stood really well. We've been hosing off after most of our rides with this warm weather as well.
Next week, we'll add Shoulder In/Out & likely Sidepassing Off of the Fence along with beginning to venture out into the pastures.
Next week's update will be posted Friday.
