My daughter, Kelly has been riding my just 5 yr. Old 3/4 draft gelding, Cody in Pony Club lessons and yesterday they did his first canter under saddle both directions and he was great! A little fast and he had an anxious look on his face like "What am I supposed to do???" but they did great. I was too excited to take pictures of that, but then they did a little intro jumping and he did fine, trying to figure out where he was supposed to go, where to put his feet, etc. I was thrilled because usually we lunge him but we were in a hurry and didn't have time before her lesson and he was totally fine, only one little head shake after he conked a pole. They compete in a dressage rally this Sunday so today he gets spiffed up. Spring has sprung here in SoCal and he's getting so shiny!
New dressage bridle!
