Well, sorry. I still am not impressed. OK, she's better than many or most 6 year olds, but she's awfully floppy and I don't know why she is staying on that horse. She's certainly not holding on with her legs. For a 6 year old that is being taught by such an acclaimed horseman on such a well-trained horse, I just don't get it. I really honestly think that many of us that have children here could throw our own child on that same horse, 30 minutes of instruction from Herr Klimke and see the same results. Maybe I just don't get it because I'm not that skilled. Hmmm...

I believe she was actually giving the cues and that is why her leg was going so far back, because when her leg was still, he remained on the same lead, when he was switching leads, her little legs were sliding way back. I think she was telling him to do that.

I would LOVE to have a horse that well behaved... that I could put a six year old on and turn it loose...

My 7 year old rides a horse (not a pony, he is a little over 15 hands) and when she was 5, her legs kinda stuck out to the side on him too, but now she is better suited and can wrap her legs around him better.

That kid's legs stick out just like mine would if I had attempted to ride a huge horse like this.....

Imagine how hard it would be to get your legs around that one? I gotta admit I was impressed with her, tho I do think she would have done better with a pony so she could get her legs down better. They shudda put her on a real small horse or a pony her size, rather than that big horse. But that wasn't her fault, she stuck in there (literally) like a soll-jah!

I know how she feels. When I was 4 I graduated to Dad's old roping horse. He was a buckskin that stood about 16hh and weighed about 1300 lbs. He was built like a tank. I started having flashbacks to that when I started riding my Perch. He makes me feel so tiny and I can't even ride him bareback as well as she did on that horse.

You and that big boy are so darned cute together!!!!

Yeah, that is the pic that is beatin everybody on the Draft pic thread....

I am impressed, Smrobs, I think you set very well on him. I am unfortunately kinda shortlegged, I hafta have a smaller, narrower horse to really be comfortable. I think my mustang baby boy Boo! Will wind up just perfect for me. My hubby has his half Perch, but she kinda took a little more after the Thorobred side and is a bit more narrow than Big Boy there.

You two DO good, tho........

Thanks, both of you. That was after only his 3rd ride. I get used to riding him with his wide self and huge neck then go back to riding my others and it takes some getting used to. It is like going from sitting on a steam locomotive to sitting on a toothpick. The first time I rode my gray mustang after riding john (and dobe is no small horse) my first thought was "Holy crap, where is my horse. I can't even touch his neck without bending way over!!"

Darkchylde, when I get him a little more broke, I will have to loan him to you. You can set a recliner on his back and just enjoy the ride LOL. He is just toooo wide. (cough....fatass....cough) LOL.

I will take you up on that offer, but I gotta have some kind of device to help me mount! My hubby's mare is like that, a huge couch, but I also know that tryin to field mount her is a completely graceless operation! I am VERY short.
