My new horse, Melvin:)

I bought Melvin on July 1, 2010. He was a saddle seat horse until I bought him. Ever since, we've been working on dressage and he seems to have calmed down quite a bit:) I plan on jumping him a little bit just to have some fun:) He likes to play around sometimes haha. We've been participating in clinics (usually once a month), we have one coming up on March 5th and I can't wait! Hopefully these clinics will help us for showing season!! Thanks for reading:)

msw,
Melvin is very, very handsome. I mean studly! If I was a mare I'd have goo-goo eyes for him.
I love the shots of your riding him. Lovely neck position and such trust evident in the way you ride him on the buckle in that one shot. I might even copy those and use them as example in other posts of good trainig, if you don't mind.
