Thank you. I have begun working him in side reins and his work through the winter has been and will continue to be sporadic due to a lack of good footing. In the next couple of months, details to come, he will be moved from my back yard to a barn with a great trainer, an arena and access to hours worth of trails with hills. At that point, his work load will be increased to build him towards a show career, my goal being horse trials and low level eventing.
With his previous owner, he was ridden on trails, in a tom thumb, head up and hollow. He is learning that it is very nice to just relax and stretch his head and neck forward.
