I had a second lesson with Julie this morning. When I decided to get my spurs before beginning, I asked Julie if she wanted to ride Lance around to see what he feels like. Video opp! (She tried to shoot some video while I was riding, but didn't know how to work my camera so only managed to capture two- and four-second clips.)
I am so pleased with how my guy looks here! He's just warming up, but is solid and steady for a green youngster. Oh, we still have lots to work on before his Training Level debut, most notably our trot-canter and canter-trot transitions and the stretchy trot circle, but he is responding so nicely that I know we'll make good progress.
