Boring as can be

Me and Gator drug the arena and took a Sunday ride. Pretty dang boring unless you like watching people lope circles from a stationary iPod with a dirty screen. Later on we had an episode when his polo wrap came unwrapped and was dragging. He was absolutely sure it was chasing him and he reacted accordingly.

Nice horse. How long you been riding him?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks smrobs. I got him about 6 months ago, and been putting rides on him when I get a chance. Probably has 60 rides.

I like him, for whatever that's worth. You look pretty well suited and at ease on him. Was he being a bit lazy?

Yes he fits me real good.
He is lazy in turnarounds. He'll go real fast if I ask him, but it's kinda wild because he's not good at them yet. Forward isn't really a problem though. He's runnin bred and I just now have him rating a little at a lope. For a while every movement, sound, and touch meant GO FAST to him. He did scotch up a little there loping, I think I stopped him 3 or 4 times in a row in that spot before the vid and he was anticipating.

My wife made it. I never realized how much stuff we make until I got on these forums. They're not hard to make. All it takes is some copper wire and horsehair and an O-ring.

Pretty nice horse. I like those nice boring horses especially when I need to get a hard job done.
