So since Jake has been sound for about a week now I have decided to slowly start bringing him back into work. He gets rather cranky when on stall rest, stocks up and gets stiff. So I decided a short walking short trot ride would be good. Also to test his soundness, I'll keep it light and if he stays sound I'll bump it up, if he doesn't he'll go back to stall rest with hand walking.
I wanted to just play around, and not ask much for him, so I just climbed on and went. Who would have thought my crazy horse could be rode tackless? I didn't for the longest time, but lots of preparation and work didn't go to waste. Still wouldn't do anything faster than a trot or ask for much as we are not to that level yet.
The groundwork before, and me watching to check for unsoundness.
Riding, ignore me talking...I get bored just video taping.
