    He doesn't do much under saddle, but only because he's not been trained well, and the few times I rode with a saddle, he was happy to do the basics. He walks, halts, turns, etc. But anything else, he felt tense. I'm getting a saddle fitter to come double check anything, because if I ride bareback, he does w/t/c and leg yields and halts on a dime with no issues, So I'm thinking it's the saddle. Therefore I'm working him free or on a lunge line, and doing ground work, and things like that until the fitter comes out (in the next week or two).

    Also id like to get him more fit before I ask him to carry me during jumping and more difficult work. I'm not big, but I'm not a feather either. I also am looking for an instructor, so I'm taking lessons (on school horses) and checking around. When I find someone I like, I'll be able to ride him more. I don't want to hop on now and reinforce anything bad. Like, I know my leg will sometimes slide up/back in a dressage saddle for instance, or if I start jumping ahead again (an old habit that I'm afraid may come back on a green horse because I want him to go over).
