    Schooling Zeus (picture overload!)

    A few weeks ago I traded a lesson with my instructor for her to ride Zeus. It was great getting to watch her ride him and she explain everything she was doing for me. A friend (hawaii on this board :]) was visiting and got some great pictures. Thanks so much!

    Zeus is no longer being ridden in the bit you see here. Although he didn't dislike the gag bit (it was rubber and always ridden in with soft hands), he's now being ridden in a french link and is very happy in it. So please, rude comments to yourself.

    Alright, here we gooooo.

    I called and he met me at the gate. :]


    "You bore me."


    D'awwe, he's so cute.


    I don't know why I was laughing, ha ha.


    Kisses for the Zu!


    Getting him loosened up.


    Warming up, he's so short strided at first.


    Explaining things.


    I love him!


    Starting to use himself. Look at that smile. No one can resist his charms!


    His mane is awesome.


    Foam!


    More explaining.


    Canter!


    More.


    More in next post...

    She makes him look so easy to ride, ha ha.


    More cantering.


    Itching.


    "We better be done."


    Turn on the forehand and haunches to finish up the ride.

    Thanks! Just thought I'd add. When it looks like he's opening his mouth... he's not. What he does is when he's concentrating and working hard he flaps his lower lip. Just something he's always done. If he's paying attention and thinking you'll see him do it. It's so funny. I have to get a video of it some time, ha ha.

    Great pictures Gillian. My Coach gets on Nelson for me at times during our lessons to help show me what exactly she is trying to convey to me, and to find out Nelson's buttons and how he goes - to, again, better aid me.

    I think it's great that your Coach got to ride Zeus.

    Are you going to end up buying him? What is the arrangement you have with his owner - I know you are getting quite attached to him and I hope the lease agreement works out for you in the end.
