Ok, attached is one photo of him, the rest won't allow me to load them. If your desperate to see more pics, search for my polocrosse pictures thread, and they are in there!
The only video I have of me riding him is at a show I went to recebntly, and it is still on my friends vidoe camera... I will try to get it off and post up here. But it probably won't help too much as he was an angel that day, and got second in that class :]
Mayfield, it could well be that his feet will keep putting him out until they are fixed completely... He is due for the farrier again soonish, so i'll have a chat to him when he comes out and see what he thinks about it. If that's the case I will wait until heis feet are balanced up again and get another course of bodywork for him, which will hoepfully be the end of any residual soreness issues.
Circleck... Thanks for your opinion. I want to say though, this is no way an issue that makes me want to get rid of him. I bought him for 6,000 and already I could get probably 8,000 and in a year or two closer to 10,000. He is like most of my horses, a project. I'm passionately into the training side of horses, and at the moment I will buy a horse, put a year or so worth of training and solid work on it and sell it on.
Apart from this issue, this horse is amazing, and the best horse i've worked with so far. He has an amazingly cool mind. He acts like he is falling asleep most oft he time unless you ask him to do something more, and I have felt totally safe putting beginner riders on him once I have sounded him out to make sure he is not in one of his bucking moods. You put him in a pace and he will stay there until you ask for soemthing else. He runs games (barrels/poles etc) Super fast but can also lope through with no fuss. He hardly spooks. Since I got him he is constantly and obviously improving all the time. He can now move forward into a contact, he has awesome stops and rollbacks/haunch turns, he is unfussed by a show atmosphere. His first show (and my first ASH show) at Bungendore recently we got second in every class and first in the time trial, one of the classes involved galloping circles while cracking a stockwhip, and he is just unflappable. He is friendly, easiest horse to catch, loads no problem, etc.
Basically, he is near perfect except for this issue. Even with this issue, he will be worth big bucks when I decide it is time to sell, and i'm very attached to him, he is very likeable! So getting rid of him is really not something i'm willing to do in this situation. His bucking hasn't endangered anyone but me, and it's a risk I am willing to take, he hasn't even come close to unseating me. Most of the time you feel him humping his back and once you pull his head up he quite before he has got any feet off the ground.
Oh and I rode him yesterday arvo, he was an angel. Didn't even think about bucking, even on a nice long gallop behind the golfcourse. Confusing horse!
