    He is Perch/TB x Saddlebred, the last horse bred by an old guy who was looking just to breed for good movement.

    Well I rode him this morning, and he was FANTASTIC, AWESOME, WONDERFUL, can you tell I'm a little stoked here

    He is just at the stage I wanted, walks and trots nicely, the trot is HUGE, going to have to get used to that before I try out the canter. He has a nice whoa, is already looking to take contact, and his lateral work is great, yeah, really really happy with him

    Walking it out

    Love these two, head up and he looks hollow backed, which worried me


    But then you get him to round and engage and look how his back comes up

    We have a long way to go, but it is a first step.

    I rode him in the Stubben, seemed fine for him, I think it is big enough for me, but SIGH I need some knee rolls, and some rough out, that flat shiny saddle is not the most secure feeling in the world

    Looks great!! You guys look fine together. I really think you need to send him to me, however. I am developing grabby hands, here.
