Talking Gonzo!!!

Okay, so I posted a thread a month or so ago, about how dramatically downhill Gonzo had gone. Well, last week Courtney got on him & I then I got back on him today. He wasn't as good as he was this summer, but ohimgosh, such big milestones today!! First of all, he did a few of his first jumps at a canter, we also went over his first "spread" (just two poles with some dirt in between), a few verticles {he has only done one or two in his lifetime}, and his first verticle from a canter!! He also did his first course!!! All of which he did which no protest whatsoever!! YAY!!

I'm glad things turned around for you. It sounds like you're back on the right track.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I'll try & take pics this week! Yes, we're working with my trainer who does hunters & eventers. Umm, well, no specific plans with him because he is part gaited so he doesn't have a "true canter"..soo he can't really show, soo just gonna turn him into a nice jumper and then probably a school horse at my hunter barn :)
