After the excitement of Saturday, Izzy was really relaxed on Sunday. I think the horse I rode on Sunday is the horse that I might get in a few more years, sooner if I am lucky. He wasn't perfect of course, but he was focused and workman-like which is a lot of fun to ride.
He was so good that we did the trot spirals from A to C quickly with no issues. Since that went so well, Chemaine introduced another exercise, a modified leg yield across the diagonal.
We came across the short side at C and changed rein across the next diagonal toward K. Since this side was more difficult for Izzy, Chemaine had me simply ride him straight forward, without pushing his hind leg over with my inside leg.
Chemaine recorded a pretty big chunk of our canter work to the right, including some work on the stretchy circle. The audio is excellent, but the video gets small as I am working my way to the far end of the arena. If you have the time to watch, she has me switch him from one rein to the other which is a really helpful strategy for a horse that wants to be heavy.
