This week, we started off with another gravel road ride. We've also continued to work on Bend at the Walk (at the beginning of the video at the link below) & have added Bending with Vertical & Shoulder In/Out with a bit of Counter Bending. With these exercises, I'm specifically working on gaining control of the head, neck, & shoulders. Zakai has done well as he learns to be a bit softer & allows me to move him around.
I've included a link to a video from Friday evening. You'll see that it's a lot of repetition with pressure & release. I'll be able to show & explain what exactly I'm doing & looking for when you come for a lesson.
Next week, we'll continue to work on these exercises & add in more ribcage control.
Next week's update will be posted Friday night/Saturday.
