    Here is a video of me teaching him to stay in the circle and stay soft at the trot.....

    Remember he is just 2.


    More to come... I have one of me doing the same at the lope.... and one of me working on the spin and etc...

    Wow he is so calm. He didn't get annoyed with you pulling his head in at all. That is great. He is going to be a super guy. And I noticed that he doesn't look as but high as people thing when you ride him, so I think it was just the ground he was standing on in pictures.

    He does look a lot more even under saddle. He looks like he is doing really good under saddle

    This is him loping...

    Again left we are just starting on... but you will see him get allot better through out this video.... right lead he is awesome... btw the way... this is a good little exercise to get your horse soft and to stay in the circle with out forcing it.... you just pull and steer.... go pull and steer and go.... I start at the walk then trot then lope... He is just so easy though... no fight at all...

    Wow he is doing so great! Some people are so lucky and get really nice calm horses to start, me I got the nightmare horse from hell. I was good with most ground work, but I never did get on him, he was that bad. Just terrified of something completely on his back. I didn't want to give up, but I had to move him here and lost access to a round pen and then no one is home when I am so it got too dangerous. But I'm going to be training Gizmo this spring and summer leg yielding and spins and stops. :) So that should be fun.
    But he is coming along so nicely! He is going to be awesome! A winner for sure. I can't wait til you start competing with him :) Is he gelded?

    Nope he is still a stud colt.....

    Alot of it you just have to let them figure it out and not fight with them... or force it. The first 5 rides I had to be pretty tough on him... Once he respected my spur and wouldn't jump off or into it we progressed really quickly. I did a bunch of groundwork, that made all of this allot easier.

    Remember he is just 2 years old with approximately 25 rides on him...

    Looks good. My only question is why he is in a curb at this point? At least it looks like a curb bit.
