Gloom and despondency falls. What to do, what to do? I know I have to get him more forward going, but I feel as though I'm constantly nagging him with my legs as it is. I don't want to beat him because I don't think he'd appreciate that!
I think I have to do lots of bending and figure eights to get him to understand the concept of turning when I ask him to. I must have the only Section D that isn't forward going and a bit mad!
Any ideas anyone? All constructive advice gratefully received ...

The next post is my little video we made the other Sunday when me and my daughter went to the farm on an icy cold morning. We had a mess about in the mud and ice and then went for a canter in the field. How civilised it all was! Looking at the video though, I can see how I need to get Santana working more actively.
Anyone got any tips?!
On Friday we went to Olympia and drooled over the shopping and the showjumpers, but we managed not to spend much money. I bought a Horse & Rider goody bag and inside, amongst other bits and pieces, was a Marine magazine ... what's all that about then? I don't see the connection, being a horsey person I'm not especially interested in the sea! :s
