Since my last blog post things have progressed further in my lessons with Rocco. The difference in my riding after just 10 sessions of pilates is really showing now. Yes I'm still having slight tipping forward moments but they have been few and far between over the last few weeks now.
Rocco is still not sure about 'that' new door sometimes but I'm coping with it. Leg yields, shoulder in and counterflexion get deployed to help him overcome his fear of that 6ft 6 piece of wood panelling. I'm making sure he gets sight of it both reins and then walking / trotting him straight ahead past it after we've done some work.
