His walk has improved so much
We were working on the same things we have been: consistency, reaching for the bit, my right hip, and my upper body. The consistency is improving, but still has a long ways to go. The reaching for the bit is a similar situation. It is getting there, but there is lots of room for improvement.
The most surprising part is the news flash that he goes better when I get my shit together and ride correctly. It is amazing how much easier it is for him when I get my right hip out of his back a quit shoving his haunches fifty miles to the left. Funny how that also fixed our whole can't pick up the right lead problem.

I was actually quite pleased with my upper body progress. I got in the habit of pitching forward (probably to counter balance when he dropped his back and all of a sudden I would feel like I was sliding off the back). But now that he is lifting more things are more level and I am not struggling with my balance. Now I just need to remember to look up.
