Hehe it's been a long time since I've done one of these :). Thumper and I show in jumpers, equitation, and a little dressage to get some feedback on how he's going. He was shown in hunters for a while, so we do some for fun every once in a while :). We're working on getting Thumper to use his back more; it's been a long process first getting him to relax (he's naturally a pretty high-strung and nervous horse), then slowly asking for more push from behind. He was started in a corkscrew snaffle, so when he came to my barn he had a pretty hard mouth (all the horses here are ridden in french links, etc.).
We're also working on cleaning up his lead changes; even when you ask he likes to change first in front, and then behind a couple strides later. So we're going back to basics to get them clean. When he starts getting tired, though, it's a lot harder for him, but we're getting there!
^^He is the most honest horse I have ever ridden- he'll jump from any distance as long as you support him and HATES to touch the fences haha :)
Any critiques on my riding or on Thumper would be much appreciated!
