Ace has continued to improve over the last month. He took part in advanced camp where he learned how to jump spooky cross country jumps and go swimming! He thoroughly enjoyed his time at the Ark. We have worked consistently on bending and balancing through transitions and in the corners by doing 20 meter circles and putting a major emphasis on upward and downward transitions. Ace’s jumping continues to improve and he is becoming more and more aware of how to use his body as he jumps and where to put his feet. Ace has also begun to do more and more lessons and is really stupping up to the plate and acting like an old pro! We have begun attempting flying lead changes with him by setting up a ground pole which allows for him to more easily swap his lead. Although this is a work in progress, he seems to be beginning to understand more of what we are asking him to do. This just proves, one more time, how willing he is to learn and how much he trusts and enjoys everything we are asking him to do.
