Lessons In Lightness
Played online and freestyle again tonight. Online - circling game at trot and canter with some really nice changes of direction. Also played with circling with an obstacle (trot and canter over a cavaletti). Renegade did a great job!! Freestyle - follow the rail, yo-yo, million transitions, changes of direction with indirect and direct rein. Renegade was a little impulsive (we were in the big pasture) but I stuck with it until he got soft and light. We played in the round pen also - push a ball at the walk and follow the rail at a trot until he was calm and light.
