I hope i wasnt to full on, sorry if i was. The above i told you has been built into me since the day i started riding. I was taught to ride pretty. When i find faults i always try and explain tricks to fixing them. I think its all good and well knowing whats wrong but you have to know how to fix it. Hands are always a pain. Heels and hands are the most common problems people forget about them because they know what their supposed to look like they get slack and dont constantly keep there mind on them. Its all multi tasking ;)
In the photo of the 1mtr 5 he still is quite flat he doesnt round over them and doesnt pick himslef over it, but by the looks the girl riding him didnt stride the jump right, he came underneath it to much and put a half a step that wasnt needed in it she probably approached it on an angle and didnt centre it, and personaly she needs more release. So it probably isnt the best photo to judge.
Thats so nice, I love OTTB there my favourites, i love there challenge and attitude, and it warms my heart when they find nice homes. Your story with Joe is similar to my boy Karlos he raced for 9yrs and was retired and forgotten about for 2yrs now im re-training him. Do you know if he was raced or just trialed? Do you know what stud he came from?Just remember it will be hard, nothing worth while is easy, thats what makes it worth while. The day it becomes easy is the day you give up. I just realised where not that far apart in age!! :)
