Training horses sometimes dictates good days and sometimes, not such good days when your progress dwindles and you think all your hard work has just flown out the window. Mr Baxter and I had one of those days today. Baxter’s forward movement was anything but forward and our transitions were average to say the least!

So… my thoughts are, that I need to relax more as well as work on getting Baxter more supple by walking small circles in figure eights, leg yielding and some counter flexion work. Also, I think I’ll start from the beginning and get the forward button switched on again!

Any other tips let me know! Until next time!!
