Ace continues to show improvement in his responsiveness and balance. One of our board members, Dana, has visibly noticed his change in balance while lunging and free lunging him; he even offered a couple of flying lead changes on his own! Ace has begun to work in draw reins every once in a while to help him learn to use and develop his back muscles. His responsiveness to verbal and other aids has been better as well. Several times he has worked in one of the fields at Hidden K Stables as preparation for his hunter show debut April 21 at TTC. Walks down the road have become a consistent part of his work outs as a cool down to continue to expose him to everything. He is very eager and well behaved in and out of the ring. We continue to work on his ability to bend tracking left which is a little more difficult that tracking right.
