Worked with him some and he definitely has personality haha. Likes to touch everything and be right by you. Definitely working on personal space and patience. Saddled him up and he did great currently he is tied to the trailer for some patience work and not liking it lol. I'll update later about how he rides.
Thanks :). So rode him today he looves trail haha but is more lazy/arena sour when inside the yard. So took a ton of disengaging the hind quarters and encouragement to get a trot out of him haha. He definitely has been hit and beat on but he is extremely smart and catches on quickly. I will have to figure out how to post these pictures from today but will have to wait till I can get a computer. I didn't push him too hard as he needs his feet done so mainly walking, circles, shoulder control and little bit of trotting.
Oh I am and to be honest his ear doesn't bother him I can squeeze it and rub him all over his ears/face/body. He has had training that's for sure he has zero problems being saddled/ridden I think he just hasn't been asked for work as he is an absolute angel zero worry on the trail. He just doesn't know what circles are and minimally understands to step over from leg pressure.
Yesterday was really just a push all the buttons and see where he is at which he did great.
