I then did the pre-ride checks and asked Kai to do lateral flexion.
I primed him in an earlier session by teaching him that if I put pressure on the place where my leg is when riding he needs to go sideways. A little bit in front of that spot means to yield his FQ and a little bit behind means to yield his HQ.
I asked him to follow the rail for a few laps in each direction and then began to practice the yields. I started with the HQ yields because they are the easiest for Kai. Once he was very light and pivoting on the correct foot we did some FQ yields. I can easily feel when he is pivoting correctly most of the time but have trouble trusting myself so I asked my Mom to watch his feet and confirm when Kai was correct.
We did some sideways and then ended the session.
I did not ride Kai in a while and I was very proud of how light he was.
