I totally get that the bump up in work at Second level is tough. And it's probably made harder for Speedy since he's coming back from 3 months off. But dude, it's not that hard.
Speedy doesn't want to carry more weight on his hindquarters, and he definitely doesn't want to move with an uphill tendency. And clearly, some days he isn't reliably on the bit (although that's not usually our problem). We need a lesson. That's all there is to it. I need eyes on the ground and some new tools for this level.
You suck, Second Level!
