Proud girl right here :]
Soo my boy is known for being very hot and quite the jerk but I have found that he loooves kids. So today, I haven't ridden him since last thursday, I had a lesson to do but all the 'lesson' horses were being used for a camp sooo I lunged my boy a little (not to tire him out I do it to get him focused and just as a routine thing) and saddle up and hopped on him. About 10 minutes after I got on him my lesson girl shows up so I grabbed a helmet and popped her up on him.
Well low and behold he was an angel with the little girl pulling on him a couple times on accident (the first horse she rode was very hard mouthed and lazy, complete opposite of my boy) and the wind he surprised me again :]. I stayed by his head the whole time just in case he got goofy but he was completely fine never threw his head and did everything she asked. Next time if I have to use him I will probably use a snaffle or his jr cow horse instead but I'm insanely proud with how he was.
This horse has come so far since the day I started working with him and I am so proud of him and how much we have accomplished. When I met him I never would have thought to put a snaffle on him due to his habit of running away with people and now I can generally canter a barrel pattern on him :]

Oh I was definitely smiling. I have learned that I really need to just trust him because as much as he acts up he has done so much to prove himself and I've learned so much with working him.

What a good boy. It's amazing how they can change when they know they have precious cargo.

Oh definitely he can be a crazy wack-o (was bein a bit goofy for me) but she was backing him up and turning him on his haunches and 'spinning' him around me haha.

Yes! I have put a child up on him before actually but that was only for a 10 minute quickie leadline and she just held on. This little girl was on him for half an hour and steering and stoping him all by herself.. well I was by his head but it was pretty much her haha
