Today I had the DOR working on trotting.  I know how to trot and the more I do it the better I get.  The DOR on the other hand needs to get her act together.  She looks down between my ears when I trot, that is not a good thing.  It causes her to curl up and put her heels in my side.  She then complains I am being "squirty" and the tightens on the reins, then I fuss my head and she repeats her curling.  I have found that swishing the heck out of my tail will let her know that I am frustrated with what she is doing.  She spent today sitting up straight, shoulders back, and heels off my side.  In turn I gave her several trips around the arena at a nice trot. 
I am pleased with her performance today.  She even remembered to breathe and smile.  Great progress for the day.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
