Where are the holes?

This is ride number 7 on my 2 year old.

Rides have been very sporadic. The first ride was back in June, just a few walking steps. The next ride wasn't until August - some walk, trot & outside exploration. At the beginning of September, we went out on the trails for about an hour & had a blast. Ride number 5 was at the end of September and I introduced backing, and turns on the fore & hind quarters. Rides 6 & 7 have been working on instilling these basics.

Besides riding, there has been a lot of ground work, ponying, ground driving and exposure to shows.

So where are the holes & what should we be working on next???

He wasn't crossing over very well in the front. What I do with my horses when I teach a pivot is I turn them 1/4 then ride off. When they get really good at that then I turn them 1/2 then ride off. By riding off it keeps the hindquarters engaged because they expect to be ridden off. I do this untill I can turn a full circle. Whenever they feel like thier coming apart I ride them off. Other than that he seems pretty good. Consistency is your best friend so riding every day will go a long way with this guy. He's a nice big good lookin horse too.

Here is an updated video from a show last weekend:


We did the western walk trot classes. Wow...was he being pokey that day! But I was satisfied with how he did considering he's only had about 25 rides. Now he'll get a month or two off before we start getting him ready for next show season.

Aside from him breaking gait, he looks like he did pretty well; I think he's looking good for the amount of time you've been on him
