    Sometimes they can be real stinkers when they've had that kind of time off. You both look like you are enjoying it though, that's the main thing

    Yea I've had him for 4yrs and even all the time he's had off, even once when I hurt my back and couldnt ride for 3 months and then went and got on him, he still acts like a gentleman! No one can believe he's only 7 and he's a TB lol. I love him he is my dream horse.

    We are both lucky then Vida is my dream horse as well. I had to take 3 months off last year due to a back injury/fall She was a bit out of shape, as was I, but she was a real lady for my first ride.

    Looks like you are having fun! Try to keep your thumbs on top though, and raise your hands so they are just above the withers.

    Also, please wear a helmet. I know a very experience horsewoman who fell off while mounting (her horse spooked). If it hadn't been for her helmet, she would have died. As is, she lost a lot of her memory and couldn't ride for months. Where your horse has been off for a while, he's probably a little full of it at times!

    I understand ur concern but like I stated before my horse is never full of it and he hasnt spooked at anything in 3 yrs! I've taken him everywhere and doesnt care. He is the only horse i'd ever take this risk with. But thanx for the advice, it was hard to keep my thumbs up bc I was off for a month and a half bc of carpel tunnel so it was hurting to keep them up i'm working on strengthening my wrists more again.

    He is a beautiful horse. No critique from me! Keep up the good work with him. He is a stunner.

    Thank you, he's a TB but from what everyone says he looks and moves like a WB. I can't wait to get him back in shape and take some pics and videos of his movement then. When he extends his trot its enormous and so floaty!
