    Hey guys!

    I Was looking for opinions on the way Red and I are working atm. He is the generally "Head in the air" at the moment horse. I've been working with him for a year and 1 month know. It's been bumpy and more about getting to know him, i've not wanted to rush him, force him, push him etc. etc. And I've had the run of the mill stuff done. Teeth, Vetting, Chiro, Saddle fitters, and Farrier regularily.

    I need advice from where to go -know- I'd liek to event him (Your probably laughing at me) But he seems to really enjoy it once he gets over his initial fear :P.

    So we've wanted to work on dressage, he does have a bit of a weaker back and his SI joint is sunk due to paddock life for 3 years. We are doing what the chiro recommended for him, and have been doing the trot poles ever since we were instructed to do so 6 or 7 weeks ago.

    This is turning into an essay and I apologise! >_<. I'd like to start getting Red to accept contact and start working from behind. We are going to start more hill work as he seems extremely bored with poles and circles >_<.

    Photos of how he generally goes about when I ride him, I look horrible I know, I had fallen of the week previous and was soree. I also have my stirrup up 4 holes from usual for a bit of jumping we where doing and hadn't put them back. Ignore the draw reins I didn't use them I took them of after a couple laps of not using them. >_<

    Im riding in an AP and it makes me have a horrible position IMO.

    Any way fire opinions away .
