I'm riding Ri as he recovers from his abscess, which resolved a few days ago. He is not quite 100% so we are just walking and trotting, but I think in a few days we'll be back to our regularly scheduled boot camp.
Imagine your dream-canter!
It's good to have a goal in your mind, and an image of the canter you want. I have a mental image of a Riley that will be cantering like Don Juan De Hus, the horse in the photo from the last post, in this photo (I don't have permission to post), and in the video below. If for some reason you can't wait through the trot to see the canter, it starts at 2:11. Is it not awesome?
Might as well make it this the goal! Because there is no downside to dreaming it. :-)
