Good luck! Do you have any experienced horse ppl around that could help you? I've been with horses for 6 years or so now and I still ask more experienced horse ppl in my area for advice and assistance. Most of them I'm sure would be glad to show you what you need to do to help Major. Its always easier with a demonstration than a wordy description!
When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~William Shakespeare
