After 3 weeks of riding...

They were off for 3 months, and just started coming back in June. As always critique is very welcome but only on horses this time, not rider (because it's not me riding them :) ).

They honestly look really good for coming back into work. Fairly balanced, using their backs, no bracing that I can see. No ducking behind the bit either..

:)

Lol! Thanks, Sky! Yes, the rider is a professional, and she started lateral work with them as of last week. So will see how far they can go. :)

Thank you, tiny! (she's MUCH better rider than me too though, I have to admit :) ). But I can't ride for several months, and I'm very curious how far they can progress under professional.

I knew it! That lower leg was just too amazing to be just a somebody

But seriously from the older pictures I've seen of these horses (pre-training with a Dressage/Jump coach) they have come so far!! I'm excited to see where they go with this additional training :)
