Send some rain with them if you could? Had so much in April/May/June now not so much.

Well today is my prospects 2 year old birthday (steppin on Sparks). So I figured an update would be good. I will try to get some pictures or videos up soon.

I have rode him about 15 times now... he stops on a dime, backs up.. Lopes off on both leads and move off my legs.. I can lay the neck rein and press my leg on his front shoulder and he will jump off of it (controled of course). Right now I am working on squaring him up and driving him a little at the lope.

So far everything has been extremely easy... Just a few "rodeos" at first when I was trying to get him to move off my spurs. Again I will post some videos for your viewing pleasure.

He is also doing really well under saddle.

He looks great! He really darkened up though! You training seems to be going really good. Good Luck!

I really don't like how high his butt is. In the first pics I thought he might grow out of it but he still is extreamly butt high. I'm not familer with reiners so I don't know if it is common for them to look like this at that age?

Yeah I can see that he has a high croup that is common in Quarter Horses it seems, but I'm not sure about reining horses in particular. But it seems like it would be good to have a bigger higher butt they can put their weight into. I don't know all that much about it though, so correct me if I am wrong.

I don't think that picture does him any justice, because his foot is cocked in both pictures... So his hip is up on one side.... But usually reiners you want a big strong hind quarters!

For fun....

First picture is when he was 4 months old and second picture was when he was 8 months old. He was always a big boy.

I know he is BIG but you don't want his butt to be uneaven with his front end. It makes most manuvers a lot harder for him. I hope he grows out of it but that foal pic makes me think he wount. It looks like he has always been really butt high. He is cute though
