Apollo's first ride!

Today, I rode Apollo for the first time since bringing him home! I spent the past 2 months teaching him some much needed ground work, and let him gain some weight. He was doing so well today I decided to hop on! I hopped on and he stood perfectly still and waited for me to ask him to walk on. Which is a complete 360 from when I went to look at/ride him for the first time...the owner rode first and he would try to get on and Apollo would walk away and would go in circles and once you were finally on he would be antsy and try to walk right away and it would take a minute for him to calm down, so I was very impressed with him today! He was only ridden a handful of times and was ridden in a roping saddle, so it was his first time being ridden english. I'm just extremely happy, I can't wait to keep moving forward in his training. Here's a video from today! Don't mind my lack of contact and hand position...I just wanted to show off how well he did today, I'm very proud of him :)
