Thumbs up *_-Ben is home-_*{{{{And I rode him!!}}}

I went picked up the big guy this morning, so good to have him home..he has done very well, I was impressed to see him cantering in a circle without falling over, good one Ben.

Some pics from there, no so good taken in the arena, so lots pf pics of his tail as he went past.





love this one



He may motor bike a little, but he at least is holding the curve



Had lots of pics as a variation on this



And my favorite of the morning



He was doing a nice side pass, just a shutters click away from catching the fancy footwork, as it is, here he is doing nothing much


More pics from here later

He is so hansome, and very sweet. No I haven't ridden him, *huge sigh* the saddle I tried on him is way to wide, need to sell that one and get one that suits both of us

My Colligiate seems to fit OK so that will work for now, also want to try a Stubben on him

Fantastic! Can't wait to hear about your first ride!

Here we go, the choice is between the 18" Collegiate, and I have a full set of gullets so can adjust this if needed...







Or a 19" close contact Stubben, which probably fits me better.
