We're also fiddling with bits to find out what he is most comfortable with, and he tends to be a little hard in the mouth, although he responds beautifully to voice commands and shifting your weight.
We really just need to get used to each other I think, as i've only ridden him about 6 times now and not usually for any great length of time.
Im sure in the end, he can teach me so much! And he's so adorable, I just love him to bits! :)
Wow that's really good. How lonmg have you had him for?
BTW. I used to ride a horse like that, I never ended up getting used to his stride, but if you keep working at it, I'm sure you'll be able to.
