Notes:

We didn't review until today, Aug. 19, so there is only two weeks left until we review again. He moved up a number in several areas this time, so we aren't pushing for much more in two weeks. We did add leg yield to the list.

Don't loose the outside rein focus as I start to focus on other things! (There is a lot of focus on connection right now.)

Keep using legs and get him listening to steering with my legs more on straight lines, as he does in corners.

Carol, Great accomplishments! In nearly every area, you achieved your goal! And what an ambitious list it is. I'd say you and Rogo deserve some serious treats and rewards! Good work, for both of you!
