Wrist is still quite sore.
I took him to dressage test yesterday. He got a 3rd, with a no so brilliant score of 58.7% (possibly the worst score I have ever had in dressage) in the Intro B test (walk trot test, very simple and a nice starter for babys) but he let me get on him without killing me or plowing me head first into the ground and there was absolutly nothing on his sheet that I wasnt expecting.
If I can get him more settled in his head away from home then wewould have done so well, but because he was unsure he backed off from my leg and I struggled to keep him in trot, but because of his history I wasnt going to push him. He also got the wrong bend on 2 half circles because he wanted to gawp at the whiteboards.
He had many admiring comments though.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
