Talking Third Ride (with video!)

Yup! This is only the third ride. He's smooth, responsive, and pretty darn well behaved! His issues are currently learning the forward leg pressure command.

I also trotted on him today. Only a few strides, but he was calm and stopped as soon as I asked. I'm totally blown away that he's moving along THIS fast! I'm not even pushing him hard. I just ask, and he gives! It's so amazing! lol.

This is uploaded through photobucket so I hope you can view it!

Wow, that's great! Post updates as they come along

You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

^_^ I'm thinking a few more roundpen sessions to get him fully comfortable in stopping and direction then it's out to the field to see how he does without boundaries. It'll be a tad scary since I know he likes the herd, but even on the ground he's never exploded to get back to them or anything, so hopefully it'll be a good time. I can't wait!

One of the best things about all of this, is that now I have 2 rideable horses so my mom can ride with me! She rides my mare though lol. Still, so happy to have a riding partner again! It gets lonely riding by yourself all the time, and it's not totally fun to have someone else just watch you ride when all you're doing is riding in a pasture lol.
And I can't believe this is only his third ride x.x

To think that like...2-3 weeks ago he was OMG SO SCARED of the saddle x.x He was better with plastic bags all over him than he was with being tacked up...but now he's so great!
