While no means a miracle fix, the pelham worked great today. Buddy took a little bit to get used to it and had a couple mini tantrums but was so much softer and willing to give and bend. His tantrums came in the canter, when he wanted to get strong and run down the long side. We did some transitions and lot of stopping and backing. We cooled out by walking around the field. Hopefully my barn owners can mow soon so we can move the jumps out for the summer.
