Thanks Tumai. Have been working really hard last few days. Walk to trot then back to walk etc. gonna take a long time and patience but got loads of that. Have also managed to get a hosepipe on his legs today. First time in two years! Was bit panicky at first but trusts me enough to do it now. People in the yard are often amazed at the things he will let me do. Just a few bits left to work on now. Am going to try and post pictures of him soon when I can work out how to do it. He's a real character with bags of personality and very showy under saddle. Everybody loves and trusts him on the ground but no-one else wants to ride him cos he plays up so much.
Also been thinking of breaking him to a cart!
