We're also working some on our lateral work, though I find that he loses forward impulsion after a few steps when I ask him to move laterally. We need more work on that first, but I'm sure if I had a lesson with Marlene right now she'd bring me back to walking and trotting circles working on getting him to bend, relax, and "hold hands" with my outside hand on the bit. I'll have to pretend she's there and work on making my circles smaller and larger to help make the lateral work a little easier.
For now, I'm super excited for the dressage schooling show and the hunter pace I'm hopefully going to do next month. I think Louie is too!
