I agree. I find it very hard though with him building muscle. I know its not 100% my fault as his previous injury really limits him on what I can allow him to do. Im really worried about him re-injuring himself as it took a lot of time and rest to heal it and honestly, I most likely wouldnt even know if he did re-injure himself as it was extremely hard to detect.
I do the carrot stretches with him and leg stretches. The tummy lift if very interested, I never knew about that. Ill have to try that one.
When I was out this past weekend we worked on lots of long and low work. He was pretty hyped up because one of the new mares at the barn is his "girlfriend" and he was mad he wasnt with her. Once he calmed down though he did get moving better and started reaching out from under himself. We were able to do some walk and trot work on the line, a bit undersaddle and I also let him be in the outdoor arena for about an hour grazing to himself and played at liberty with him a bit.
Of curse can't post all that without pictures... =)
Heres a couple working on the line, a couple at liberty and the last one just for fun is him and his ladies. They are new to the barn (although we've only been there a month) and the herd leader was bossing them around bad. Flint all of a sudden stood up to him and keeps the girls safe now.
