I'm 99% sure I was being upstaged. >___>
Note: Big horses and minis do not get turned out together... I just have them out in the big pasture so the grass will grow back well, and this is the pasture I ride in.
Dynamic FX, my pleasure horse, working english pleasure. Was lazy enough to do western, but he won't go right in western on this ground (hilly and inconsistent) and with it being slick, it would have been awful. So I went with english.
You'll see me correct him a little - he hasn't been ridden since September 2009 - after running a 19 second barrel pattern LOL. My correcting him is when you'll see him go into a more traditional frame. Gets him collected, and he doesn't at all care for it, so he decides he'd rather put his head down.
I'm going to do a video later this year, that shows him jumping, barrel racing, dressage, English Pleasure and Western Pleasure - and going at liberty.
Critique me, critique him, etc, etc. Just remember, he's been out of work for quite a while... and so have I! I haven't ridden since September except to correct a client's horse two times. It was a short ride - but in the summer it's the same. If he's working properly, he gets a quick jaunt and we're done. It doesn't always happen that way LOL!
I've been told I needed to show him in hunters, dressage and even so much as eventing but I just haven't. I plan to show him in dressage a little bit at the pinto shows.
I can't wait till I get my videographer back =___=
