Finally! Our first ride after about 3 yrs

Finally, after 3 years of not being able to ride my gelding, I took him around my property for a short "see what we both remember" ride. He was just amazing. He did all the things I asked him to, pretty effortlessly, just not too smoothly. But I am sure that will come in time. I will post a few pics here, but don't judge either of us too harshly! Lol...we both have been out of practice awhile! The pic where he is side passing....I just asked him to do this to see if he remembered...and I barely had to use any cues..he just knew what to do. The only problems I had was when I went to catch him in the field, he didn't want to come he kept trotting do what I do and chase him, making him keep running until he decides that is too much work...then he stopped.
