Thank you !!! He is registered American Warmblood, his momma was a belgian and his father was a tb (out of Mr. Prospector!!) We are going to start showing first level this spring (he did 1st test 2 twice last spring) and my hopes are to get qualifying scores so I can do a freestyle!! He has EPSM (no sugar, starches, and 10% of his diet has to be in fats ... 3 cups of corn oil a DAY!!) so I struggle with keeping him lean and mean in the winter.
After a month of dressage lessons, voila... I might just show him in dressage next year n__n And yes, we were having bridle fit issues. I changed the bit and it 'looked' fine, but alas, it obviously was not.
These are some great pics everyone! Here is one from our first show season (Eventing) this past summer...
And about a week ago we started working with our new trainer on collection, and here's where Sandie is at now, after lesson 2! SO exciting when they start really collecting and getting their hind end underneath themselves!
