Tonight we conquered the canter pole. I had buzzed through a line or two in my lesson with Jen a few weeks ago but hadn't attempted since. Wilbur was a little heavy on his front end in the canter but I think he was just being a goof, playing around. What surprised me was the length of his stride- I thought we were coming in a little long both trips on the left lead but he just stretched a little and got the stride. It gives me confidence that he'll be able to hit the distances at the shows. Super boy tonight!
