My friend came out to video tape my ride this weekend. Of course, knowing that something was up, Louie had to act like a spaz, afraid of the "A" end of the arena even more than usual. . . so, after about an hour of warm-up. . . . we were able to shoot some video. He still wasn't seeking contact with as long a neck as what he has been doing lately, and he wasn't lifting his back as nicely either. But, we still got some decent moments. We had some nice half halts, cantering, and lateral work. I think this video shows great progress (both with my riding and Louie's abilities) in the past 10 months since we started riding with Julie. Enjoy!
