We played in the field to take some shots for his sale ad. It was his first time being ridden out there so he was FRESH - but he's a naturally forward horse and IMO he did great for his first time. No spooks or bucks or bolts - just Speedy Gonzales! We got a couple of cute shots - keep in mind that generally when we're schooling, he works much rounder, uses his hind end more, etc. He was a loosey-goosey greenie in the field and so he wasn't necessarily as engaged and I *may* have been focusing a little too much on his head (shoot me!). Oh and, he's 15.2hh and I'm 5'7 so I look a litttttle big on him and I have a chair seat in a couple of pics. Ew.
PS, as you can tell, I ride him in a Dr Cook Bitless Bridle. He's wicked sensitive and it's really helped us advance in his training without freaking him out. I'm now slowly transitioning him to a french-link loose ring snaffle.
*the swooshing tail is because of the nasty bugs :)*
^^ just for fun :)
Distracted! By a half-naked woman, no less.
EW! How bad do I look in this shot?! And his saddle looks like it slipped forward, but I think that's really just because he's long-backed - optical illusion..? anyway, here are a couple of confo shots, too.
Right now i'm marketing him for sale because i'm leaving for virginia to be a working student for phyllis dawson in october, but if he doesn't sell before then i'll be bringing him. I'm going to foxhunt him and event him (obviously...it's an event barn and he's most certainly an event horsey!) and then market him there. So if you're in new england and interested, pm me haha!
Thanks in advance for the critique!
