    My Project Horse Is Coming Along

    This is Eclipse a 4 year old colt that I started last summer on barrels, we just started getting back into in not long ago after him being out to pasture not working any. But his owner recorded us today, I can just feel him so I can't see him working but seeing this made me pretty happy. Video is bad quality but you can see most of him. At the end of the month is his debut doing exhibition barrels :) I just wanted to share

    Sorry embedding never works for me at all, if anyone wants to put the video on here feel free

    Thanks, and he won't be pushed for speed until he's ready. I'm still trying to fix his 2nd barrel to my liking

    I don't think you'll have to worry about his soundness. You know what you're doing, and when done right and easily you can start adding speed at that time. You just have to be super careful, but of course you know that. :)

    He's a pretty well built little horse and he's never been worked very hard for long. Compared to most 4 year olds he's behind but he's just meant to be an open horse not a futurity horse. I can can push him a bit but I never ask much of him, I've always been told speed will come when the horse is ready and it always does.

    Video looks pretty good.

    If anything, I would probably give him a little wider pocket around the barrels, so that's he's got wiggle room when the day comes that you add speed.

    Your 4-yr-old is farther along than my 6-yr-old. But then again, I just bought him.
