I was up riding merlin today at trainers, as i have nothing to do except revise after school, so i was getting a bit bored

So rode him today and the difference is amazing! He was so much sharper off the leg and he loves his new bit - a happy mouth straight bar snaffle! for the forst time EVER he took me into the fence - which took me by surprise the first time so he rushed into it

But i love that feeling!
I then did a row of bounces down the long side of the arena (10-12 bounces) and he was amazing, he just kept going

this meant that i was able to concentrate on my own position for the first time in yonks and improve my balance

Yep, 10/12 bounces down long side... makes them work anyway! and makes you work on keeping straight and balanced!
