It is hard to say what changes that can help a horse progress. In regards to Chip, I have increased the energy in his feed. Spring has sprung. He enjoys a paddock on his own now. There are quite a few things that have changed that might have led to him changing. In any case I will not complain because Chip is now in a fantastic place. He has a great learning frame of mind, he picks things up quickly and diligently tries to do what is asked. He seems very happy in himself and I feel like I am really building a fantastic relationship with him as we work together. Bring on summer!
