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
