Friday Lesson Wrap-Up

My brain is a bit fried tonight, so we'll keep this summary short so that you're not stuck with a real rambler.

- Engage the right hind in both directions.  When circling/spiraling to the left, this manifests itself in that "turning a two by four" feeling.  To the right, he's overbent, especially through the neck.  Same leg, different direction, different outcome.

- Leg yield, starting from the hind end through the front end.

- Using the counterbend to help with the bending in circles

- Turn on the forehand: he's going to have to get over being frustrated as long as I'm setting him up correctly and giving him all that he needs.
