0

Roll had a really good leading workout today. He did do very well negotiating the gate.

 

Roll stayed in sync almost without a misstep during the whole lesson!

He did bend his body nicely through the rib cage around the cones.

He did seem to have a little trouble aligning his back feet. He kept getting them a little closer to each other than he has in the past, but it will improve with practice.

When I asked for more energy, he had it! A marked improvement from the beginning of his training!

Roll gets more gorgeous every day! For a mule, his mane and tail are amazing!
