I must not be the only one who thinks the new brushes are magic:
At the barn today I was promptly met with "Your horse is a ball of shine"
|Shine on you crazy diamond ;)|
There were poles already down today, so we took full advantage!
Lots of transitions from walk to trot, and some long-lining as well to take full advantage of the ring (and not put too much strain on her joints ;)
And walk-trot-whoa in every possible permutation all around the ring, until the "walk-on" scoot evasion/misunderstanding was more the exception than the rule.
