lol... that was me running him. Granted, it was my second time riding him. Just didnt reach down far enough... but yes, he's a stiff runner. I don't like it because he has a tendacy to drop his shoulder in and come off the barrel strong. And let me tell you, he's strong. The problem he has is if you get his nose, without getting his ribcage, he gets noodley. So you have to really work on using legs and keeping him in a strong frame.
But hey, practice makes perfect.
