  1. You two have come such a very long way; his canter seems so joyful in the video!

    You brought him to life again.

    1. He is beginning to make huge jumps in both learning and the ability to do what I am asking. Our canter today was an amazing step forward. N and I had the arena all to ourselves, so at the end of our ride we cantered in a circle, with Ashke following Cali, and he did awesome. He didn't try to race or fight to get his head up. He did have a tendency to try and shortcut the circle, but I was able to keep him from doing that with my leg. He kept a rhythmic canter at the same distance behind Cali. I was so happy. All this work in the arena is paying off.
