Plus, he collects much easier while bareback. So we can work on that 100 pounds of muscle that needs to be put on him. He's a skinny-mini at the moment when it comes to muscle. We really need to work on his hind-end muscle. I have to remember that he hasn't been worked or ridden in two years until these past two weeks, so we have a lot of conditioning to do. But he used to be SO beefy when I was riding every day. We'll get there.
I made him stand in the middle of the arena while there were other horses riding around. What a good boy.
