Today me and Mr.Grumpy had our first private lesson with a Grand Prix rider at our barn. The left canter issue has to be solved and he certainly makes me work hard to get there. I need to become more aware of where I place my hand when I ask for the canter. He is a smart horse, so he just keeps testing me. Today I had to do full forward gallop on the long sides and then do small circles at the corners to make him more collected and have him listen more. I’ve never had him gallop this hard before, was so much fun and we both enjoyed it. I can’t wait for the next lesson next week. Afterwards he got a shower, carrots and an hour outside as per usual. Good day for us both.
