Things have been pretty quiet with Stinker lately, because all I have been doing is trying to get him to build his topline. I think that is our biggest struggle in the trot. He just doesn't have the strength to carry a rider correctly in the trot. He tries really hard, but it just isn't there yet.
Unfortunately it makes life quite dull. There are only so many ways you can say, "I suppled my horse at the walk and then put him on the lunge and made him do transitions." No rocket science involved, no fireworks to make writing interesting (I am thankful for that). Just plain old steady work slow meticulous work.
I am not going to lie, I am getting quite bored with it. But it is what he needs, so it is what he gets. I think I am starting to see some changes especially up by his withers and in his shoulders. Although it could be because I stare at them so much I have convinced myself that there are minute changes.
