And we’re cantering!

Mr. Will got the stamp of the approval from Dr. Lisa so we’re cantering!! He’s pretty weak behind though, so his canter feels very small.

Last Friday, Ellen cam over to give us a half lesson. It was very exciting. She helped us with the canter and gave us an exercise that will help to encourage him to take bigger steps behind. We canter for a few strides and wind in to the trot. By doing this, he has to reach and take bigger steps with his hind legs. It’s also a good for controlling him since he has lots of energy right now!  As our lesson progressed and we started doing more movements, Willoughby became more excited. It was really cute and made me happy to see and feel that he really enjoys his job. It’s great to be back!
