Mr. Moon moves with his head held high. He's evasive. He's not big on bending, and he's really stiff. But we're working on it, and as promised, here's two short clips from Wednesday's lesson.
Video #1 is of me, working him at a trot, trying to get him to stretch and lower his head. We're making okay progress, but it's a lot of work. I'm also working on improving my leg position and not posting so high.
Video #2 is of Coach W riding him, and Moon being a brat. That's his 'open-mouth' movement that we're trying to correct. She's really trying to encourage him to bend and stop being so resistant. Note that he also threw a big temper tantrum and was being a brat.
