Alright, I was asked to keep everyone updated on Noah's progress so here's a picture of our roundpen work this week! I really think he did well. He's really starting to use his hind end the way I want, and he's getting much more confident under saddle. We have him entered in an open show in December, and I'm very excited to see how he'll do. We'll just be doing flat classes for now, but I eventually want to have one of my more advanced riders take him for a spin in a hunters class or two.
We're still working on weight. He's gained ten pounds this month, not what I was hoping, but it's something! ^^
And some 'no hands' work. When I dropped the contact at first, he was a bit nervouse, but soon calmed down and got to work ^^
