So went and saw my boy today, havent seen him in a week as I had to travel to go see a sick family member. But anyways, finally got out to see him and oh my was he very naughty, youd think I hadnt touched him for a year! We are back to square one with grooming and brushing him without him moving, I rode him and asked him to trot and it took a lot of kicking to get him to keep walking. He then tried to pigroot and ran forward when I asked him to back up, so I only rode him about half an hour and made him back up and halt so that we finished on a good note. Then when taking off the bridle, he usually just stands there but he had had it by then so turned around and started walking himself back to his paddock with his martingale and saddle still on.
So tomorrow he will be getting more work, but I got some photos today :)
