I bought JT last December. He was very green, my first 4-year old and my first Arab.
This is what he looked like last January:

This was him yesterday:

Of course it helps a great deal that he lost his winter coat and that the hives are gone. I moved him to a new barn and the footing in the arena is much better.
If only I could stop looking down (I know his head is not going to fall off, but it is a hard habit to break) and straighten my shoulders. I guess he's learned more than I have these past months...
This one is just cute:
