Reeco's Progress

I went to See Reeco today. So far he has been away for 4 weeks andis realy coming on.

It has een decided that we are 99% sure that someone has tried to break him before, scared him out of his wits and then tried to force the issue. So Sarah is working with some serious issues. When she first put the saddle on him he stood in the stable shaking from head to foot. When she did the girth up he held his breath and she had to walk him to get him to breathe again. Some body has realy done a number on him in the past as he is plainly terrified.

Anyway He is now lunging and long reining well (canter serpintines and figures of 8 in canter on the long reins). Sarah attempted to lie over him but he dissapeared out from under her, so for the last week They have been lungin ghim with Jean the dummy on him.
I went to see him today, took some videos and made a fuss of him. He is looking so well, very shiney, he has put on weight and muscle mass in his back end, He is very settled on the yard and has made friends.

Sarah is going to try sitting on him again tommorow!

A few photos:

Settled boy, stuffing his face in the stable, look at that back end!!!

His breeding is DWB x Welsh section D.

I'm hoping to be able to show him as a small riding horse or small hunter. hopefully do a bit of dressage with him.
I love his movement! it is brilliant for the show ring.
