It is the same horse...but not the same horse. (if that makes any sense!) In the past month since the trade fell through, he's really made remarkable progress. While he's got stamina for miles, he's no longer dragging at the bit to go or jigging. He never really had a problem with spooking, it was just the pure 'go go go!" thing that made me consider a trade.
I haven't driven in quite a while but the horses I drove back then were the better riding horses in that particular stable. It seems to make them better rounded physically and mentally. Also my husband is really interested in learning how to drive...strange I know but he has little to no interest in riding but would love to drive. It might be something we could do as a family to keep my horses from becoming a burden.
