Here is some video of Lex working Diva taken last week. I can see so much improvement from the previous video we took about 3 weeks ago. Riva's stickiness is disappearing - her trot is improving - her canter has gotten stronger and she can sustain it longer - she is learning to canter on cue instead of running in to it - and she seems much happier working. We are still riding every other day until she sees the vet for her re-check this Friday.
Tonight, Lex rode her very briefly and then gave me a lesson on her. We worked on slowing the trot on the short sides and lenghening on the long sides - walk to trot and back to walk transitions - medium walk and free walk. Lex then hopped back on and took her for her first walk around the galloping track = new feature at our barn! Riva was a superstar and walked calmly around for Lex.
