Thanks for the advise! I will do some walking with him a few times a week. He is also getting turned out in the morning, so that should help some. I work durring the day, so unfortunatly it is hard for me to do much other that ring work this time of year durring the week. But I can walk around the ring, no circles, just a nice relaxing walk and then on the weekends go for a walk around the hay fields (I live in DE, there is no such thing as a hill in DE, so it would be a nice flat walk). I will also watch how often I bute him. A friend of mine has told me I can ride her horse, so I can get some other riding time in too, which is great. I was going to give him a good 6 weeks before I started to ask him to trot at all. I am already seeing some improvement in his walk when out in the field. He was crossing over behind pritty bad and he is a little straighter now.
