My instructor was out of town but she encouraged me to go say hello to Hot Shot this morning. I groomed him and took him for a walk in the arena. He was awfully squirrelly today, maybe because of the cool, breezy weather. He's gaining more weight and muscle. I suspect we're going to have to start all our lessons with some lunging and some work on downward transitions - he really likes to move.

My instructor was ill but I got to do some ground work with Hot Shot today. We started in the round pen and then went to the arena and walked through some serpentines and circles, then trotted together twice around the perimeter, all with the reins over his neck and out of my hands. This guy is amazing.
