Training level 2: Not a giant step forward

Some things I like, and some I don't. We got a 65% despite some real accuracy and balance issues...

  1. Once again, pretty darn nice overall. He is more unsteady in this test, but it's really not bad.

    I think you need to do a lot of transitions, over and over at home. Instead of keeping him in one gait for periods of time, switch it up, transitions up and down will not only help him learn to get his balance, but it will also make him stronger.

    You can work on a 20 meter circle and, if he tends to come up off the bit in the transition, do a little leg yield or shoulder in on the transition.

    He looks good in both tests. Nice and forward. What are you getting on those free walks? I hope the scores are up there. They deserve at least an 8...at least!!
