Today was my first lesson after camp. Right away Barbara noticed a difference in my position. PJ noticed too. He went more forward from the start. I was also straighter. Yay!
On the flip side, when PJ started to get tired and I pushed for half-halts, he threw his head. But I just ignored it and was very careful with my hands. He eventually stopped. I can’t believe that during that second lesson he learned a bad behavior within 15 minutes (of course it was my fault). I think he’ll forget it as long as I continue to remember not to pull on him, but it makes me really aware how careful I need to be.
