Pretty Proud Of My Horse

My gelding is 6, he's been going on barrels for a little under 2 years. I was running in the 1D on him before I stopped showing this year. He's a very push style horse who is only going to go as fast as his rider makes him go. But me being unable to really ride him or show him until next year, instead of letting him sit were trying a new jockey. This is my 8 year old step sister riding him for the first time, and Link being about as lazy as he can get. After practicing some more we'll try out a show. Link may be a Youth horse for awhile.

Can't see them :(

I can't see the videos but it sounds like he did pretty well. Congratulations.

Looks like he is taking pretty good care of your step-sister!

Just make sure she pushes him deeper into the pocket, before asking to turn.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

He's lazy during practice and hardly tries. At a show he'll go a little harder and put more effort into it. She said he was the easiest between her pony, my moms mare and him. I think since he's so automatic and push style she'll gain more confidence on him, because she will have to push him and you know he's going to turn.
I'm happy with him he proved my thoughts that he can be a kids horse someday. But he'll step it up enough for me to run and place.
This is him from the last show someone recorded me at, before I had him fully in shape.
