Since the hoof injuries... All for hooves bruised and one abcess... Long story... Poor guy. ):
VERY proud of him (and myself)! He was so happy to be back in work; very eager. He was searching for contact and was holding it without pulling. By the end of the ride I was asking for light rounding of the neck (it was not true collecting, so I will leave it at "rounding of the neck"). I think I got him infront of my leg a few times too! =] Im just so proud of him. Plus, I was keeping my reins shorter then normal, and as some of you know, that is a big thing for me (I like ZERO contact). Plus I think my hands were a little better (as in my puppy paws werent as bad as normal).
