|View from the indoor riding ring towards the south and Willy's pen|
We walked and trotted a little in the ring. Willy wasn't really wanting to move forward much and I was too tired to keep my leg on him with any force so I led him out of the ring into the area around the arena in hopes that we could walk around the arena with a little more momentum. It worked. We mainly walked and trotted and I continued to work on halts with him. It really is a struggle but as we continued he got quicker and quicker in his stop response. I then had him canter up the slopes a few time, I think we both enjoyed that! The canter is certainly my favorite gait but I think it's most peoples. Of course Willy is not very collected so it's not as smooth and balanced as it could be but I'm not a horse trainer and don't know how to work on him with collection issues. Most Sundays I just want to hang around a horse and have fun.
