Got home somewhat late todaydue to a ribbon cutting at work today. So Got home saddled up and off we went.
It was windy and I pulled him from his friends(neighbors horses were out and at the fence) and he was absolutely chill about it. Found a nice flat road and asked for a canter and then pushed a bit. He's definitely fast but doesn't quite know how to run yet. However he will definitely be a ratey horse, the second I shift my wieght even a teeny bit he's sitting down haha.
He then walked back calm as day home. Practiced stopping off seat and while it takes me slightly picking up the reins he is getting it. Also worked on getting him sitting back on his but and turning( he got a bit wuick walking home) I made him stop back and turn on his haunches and head back the other way about 3 or 4 times. He finally settled back into his normal rythme and we went home :].
SO lucky I chose a good one.
However might have to put shoes on him as our roads out here are awful lots of rocks and while he seems fine he seemed tender footed on rockier parts. When there are no rocks he is absolutely fine, dang rocks.
just a small town girl with a big town dream :]
