Took Lenny to a show on sunday with the intention of sitting on him and potentialy doing a walk trot class. Unfortunatly he was not in the right frame of mind to attempt a trot but we did at least get him walking round the show field (and got 2 nice red rosettes earlier in the day in the inhand classes). Doing a class on him was a bit too ambitious for a horse who was first sat on 3weeks ago, but i'm over the moon with him anyway
This is us at the beggining of walking him round, I'd been on him for less than 2 minutes at this stage! My OH is walking with me as Lenny started panicing when he went away! Lenny - YouTube
The "thats him at his worst" comment was because he had just done a sit down and go the other way on me!
Today I scrambled onboard him with no one to hold him and got some nice walk and canter work! The trot work is a bit dodgey and inclined to head straight into walls but we are getting there! Lenny is somewhat inclined ot be a bit lazy but holding a schooling whip is enough to have him going forwards a the meer hint that I might flick it towards his backside. Working now on not having to use my voice as well as my legs!
