The whole lesson was about collecting while keeping the hind leg active and marching. Chemaine brought out an old exercise, but it felt brand new; the whole peel back another layer of the onion idea. We started at the walk and then halted, all the while keeping Speedy's hind legs active.
The exercise was exactly the same: collect him down to the walk while maintaining an active hind leg and then step back into the canter. All of a sudden, I heard Chemaine's voice speaking through the noisy static of eek this is hard, and I am probably messing it up.
I have the feeling that things are just getting started.
