That day I had been working him with a surcingle earlier.
I was so worried for a minute, thank god your a smart one!

Also, I originally posted this several months ago, so he is no longer a 'just turned two', but he will go to be backed in may, when he is nearly three.

No critique here, but my god that's a nice trot. Arabs are by far my favorite breed. He looks great for 2, I'd love to see more pictures of him as he progresses =)

I love his head, and eye. Will turn out to be quite a looker I think!

Off topic here, but I've noticed people saying "backed". What does that mean, as in someone has gotten on his back? Also, where did this term come from?

Everyone has a differant idea of the specifics involved, but generally, it is the basic start of their riding career.

Thank you! I always say that he has to turn out pretty or no one will put up with his attitude! Lol He's amazing 99% of the time, but he is still a bratty young boy and likes to cause trouble. Fearlessly taking on the wheel barrow and muck fork that invade his "territory" everyday. My hero.

His mom is gorgeous! It's great you get to work with him, there is a 3yr old in the pasture with my horse and he is a disatser on 4 hooves, he is so unbehaved he actually charged my sister out of the pasture, believe it or not he is my trainers horse! She does nothing with him, it's kinda sad!
