CanteringI finally cantered Gentry for the first time this weekend, post-tendon injury. Given how green he is in general, it was a little rough but we did a few canter transitions in each direction and he got his leads. His left lead is his "difficult" lead to pick up, but given that he hasn't cantered under saddle since October I didn't expect it to be any better than it was.
CreekAfter our ride in the arena we went down to the creek so that the horse's could have a drink. This was Gentry's third time in the creek and he is so game for it now. He sees the water and marches right in! He definitely likes to play in it and this time he finally figured out that he can drink the water. It was quite cute. Best of all I actually remembered to ask EB to take a photo of standing in the creek.

Now that we are w/t/c again it is time to focus more on our riding. Woo-hoo!
- Cantering & canter transitions
- Leg yielding
- Pawing in cross-ties...still
Have a great week everyone.
