A few new snaps of Bob

Just a couple of new Bob photos. I've swapped him from a loose ring french link snaffle, to a mullen mouth, in the last few weeks and he's so much happier in it.
I'm very happy with how he's going, considering I didn't have any sort of 'go button' when we started, and if I pressed the 'go' issue, he's turn into a nervous wreck and lose his brain. Also didn't have any canter, he'd just bounce on the spot, swing his quarters and change behind every few strides.
















And video of trot-canter transitions. Bit messy, this was just our warmup canters, but I'm very glad to see that he's not changing and wildly swinging his 1/4's now.

Haha he's not half bad this little guy, makes me very very happy that we're getting on so well, will give BOTH of us a chance to get out and show our faces again I hope. He needs a lot more work, but from what he was I can't be happier!
I'm trying to find some old photos and video to compare with

Aw, I love Bob. He is looking so amazing. Great job with him.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks smrobs, he's a lovely little guy :)

MIE, it's just a Roma brand - not sure if you guys get Roma? But I've got matching bandages and his Eurostar saddle blanket in the photos is the same colours too ;)
As for a wonderful rider, I think I've got more theoretical knowledge than my body can keep up with haha, plenty of things to work on. Doesn't help when you're sore after 30mins of riding (too many injuries, hell I'll be in a wheelchair by 35 at this rate :S)

eBay Australia Shop - ELIXIR EQUESTRIAN: Woven Breeches, Knit Breeches, bridle

^My FAVOURITE breeches for day to day riding. I have thrown out all of my others. Adore the herringbones, but these are really comfortable. So comfortable that I wear them around the house like tracksuit pants haha!
