I have not ridden him yet. He was brought home Saturday. I will start with groundwork this week. I believe he was gelded very late and am wondering if that contributed to his large wide neck. He is well behaved but has not been out with any other horses. He does move like he will be fun to ride tho!
Thank you all for the kinds words about Olly. I think he is just wonderful. I see no issues with his movement but have scheduled for the vet to come out. I would have taken him regardless. He needed a home and I had one to give. I have no expectations at this point so I'm sure I will not be disappointed. The majority of the OTTB's that I work with have one issue or another and are still capable of making wonderful pasture pets, flat/dressage/trail horses. If the vet see's something to be concerned about, we will address it. I can only be happy because I know where he could have ended up had I not taken him.
