This week, we continued to work on Flexing, Yielding the HQ, One Rein Stops, Cruising, Bend at the Walk, & Bending Transitions. I also introduced Vertical Flexion at the Standstill, Stop on Whoa, & Backing. It took him a bit of time for him to work through softening to both reins at once. I opted to wait until next week for our outside rides as I would still like to see him not be quite so looky while in the arena & be more confident with softening to both reins before we head out & about.
Next week, we're looking forward to the warmer weather reaching 60°. We'll continue working on our previous exercises & venture down the gravel road on Wednesday or Thursday. A reminder that your December invoice was sent out today & is due by December 10th.

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.
