    In addition:

    That was back when I first got him. That's how every ride was, even at the walk.. it was very sad. So we started doing ground work on lowering head. Now when he's worried, all I have to do is stroke his neck or stroke down his face and he relaxes. But in saddle it's a different story.. he still grabs and bit and runs with it but it's not as bad and he stays relaxed for longer periods of time.

    Like I said, I'll try to get a picture of us riding today and a movie of his movement..

    He looks like he definitely has good potential :)

    Update! Sorry....

    Sorry about not getting back to this thread. I used to have a friend snap shots of us during our ride but since I moved, I have to either beg mom or dad.. or just go without. So today I got a few shots of us riding. No movie though of his movement.. I'll try to get that this upcoming week..

    First, Sky's back comparing a little over a week. (sorry they aren't the same side and prior to grooming lol..)


    11/20 :)

    Trotting around

    I am working on two point and keeping him on the rail with my trainer.. Also getting him in a working walk (the march.)

    Sky lunging

    Got a video of Sky lunging both ways in side reins.. usually I have a lunging whip instead of a camera. But anyway here's a gist of it.

    Disclaimer: I've only started lunging Sky in side reins these past few days per my instructor's request. I usually free lunge him or just lunge in his halter and bridle :P

    I like his trot! You have tons to work with here. Just a tip on lunging... please put boots or polo's on his legs. It can be very dangerous lunging because he is traveling on a circle. Lots can happen...

    I used to lunge with polo wraps but then someone told me that I could bow his tendon and I stopped wrapping them. Should I get sport boots?

    Oh yeah I forgot about that. That's why I don't use them either :) Yeah I use roma brushing boots and they are great and cheap. Tri-zone just came out with some new ones that are great too. I THINK that splint boots would work too... not sure though. Make sure the boot has firm protective covering on the insides of his legs. Some are nothing more than fabric. Although SMB protect a little bit and are shock absorbing... just what ever suits you and your horse, but I recommend the roma brushing boots.
