It has been some time since I have written anything about Caesar, since it has been a while since I could do anything with him. He is now at my trainer's barn. I have already been able to do a lot more with him between having an arena and access to trails. I got to spend almost 2 hours on a trail ride today. He was an absolute gem!! Calm, willing to lead or follow, responsive. He went though mud, ditches, over logs. Every time I mess with this horse, I like him better and better.

We are finally getting down to the real training work with Caesar. I did a lot of long trotting today working on balance and steering. It took him a while to just relax and go forward and stretch because he was a bit keyed up about there being another horse in the ring. However, once he did settle in and just cruise for me, we went over trot poles and a low cross rail and he was just willing to go. After I had him good and warmed up and moving out, my trainer got on him and finally got his canter. Both leads came just fine, but he will not go into canter without a buck at this point. It will take work, but my trainer is confident that he will work through it as long as we are consistent. She did tell me that she wasn't going to give him back after she cantered him though. LOL

Well, I guess this is mostly for my benefit, but I wanted to put it out there that I have sold Caesar. He has gone to a home with a lovely young woman who has plans to get into eventing with him under the eye of a great trainer. Prior to his sale, Caesar was beginning to really flex and balance in all three gaits, he was accepting and even seeking the contact and had been jumped to 2'6'' showing great enjoyment in it. I am very happy for the role I played in moving him up in the world from a half starved, scraggly critter in ankle deep mud to the lovely and easy to ride gentleman he is now.
