I was very happy with Ruler’s attitude today. On a chilly day with lots of activity he remained workmanlike and willing. There is definitely still a lot to be improved upon, but I think we are off to a really good start in the dressage ring. I am very happy with how much more comfortable and confident he got as he went through the test, and he was clearly very pleased with himself as we walked back to the trailer. We are working now in a rubber snaffle to encourage him to reach for the contact and feel confident at the end of the reins, and each day I can feel a little improvement.
And might I add, check out that walk?!
