Thanks! Haha Thumper's the same way- I'm able to actually adjust his stride in the pelham :). Ideally, I'd like to do the same in my snaffle, but his mouth is so hard from being ridden in a corkscrew snaffle until he was 9 or or so that it's still a work in progress :). Thumper's been getting the occasional bath (which he hates) and I've been working hard to gradually pull his mane (which he ALSO hates LOL) so he'll be all ready for braiding and showing :). I was in for a nasty surprise when I went out to ride yesterday, though: Thumper's started rubbing his tail again :(. It's nearly bald at the top of his tail (in the center of the dock, there are maybe 10 hairs :S), but at least there's still hair on the sides to braid with LOL.
I'll definitely try to get pictures and a video
. I have a clinic this coming Sunday, also, so I'll be getting some good insight right before the show! All flatting, which will be useful :).
