Django #4 and #5

Long session today. Played online for a bit. Worked with django on maintain gait, cod and canter departs.

Rode django for a long time. Counterarcs, right lead canter, right side suppleness, bends, bends and bends...  he was pretty tired, but he did very well. He started off blowing me off, but ended very signed on to the partnership.  His counterarcs improved dramatically.  His right bend for much softer and his mouth was finally quiet at the end. He spends a lot of energy trying to find comfort in the snaffle bit without success so I focused on setting it up for him to find it.

Loved this session. Feel good about relating this back to his owner and jerking her find the feeling I found with him.
