Raaaaffffeeee! Under saddle again...finally

So, I finally had time to get back on him yesterday. This marks his, I think, third ride. His last ride was last fall.

It was all very uneventful, though he's a bit of a lazy bugger. Every time I would stop him and let him stand for more than a few seconds I'd look down and he would be asleep LOL.








Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thank you .

I actually measured and the top of my saddle horn is 6'1" from the ground LOL. I'm surprised that I can get on him without a step-ladder.

He looks great! I think my little guy is the same age, and he is going to the trainer at the end of the month.

He's not lazy, he's conserving energy.

LOL, Ware and Muppet, that's too true.

Thanks, you guys, I'm really loving him. In spite of being lazy (and me having to wake him up every time I ask him to do much), he's really soft.

Honeysuga, yep, I still have old Bess. She's hanging around in the pen with John and Talyn.
