Dusty's first ride of 2012

Dusty is 3 now, and had all winter off since October. Before anyone jumps my case, he was started last year towards the end of summer/beginning of fall. All rides were under 15 minutes, nothing hard. Got a ride once a week. I had him doing the basics just enough to show at the end of the year show for the Stakes class.

Here is a video I got of Dusty today. He retained a lot of stuff he learned, but was a bit rusty in some spots (lol at the failed right lead). I too, was a bit rusty, it's been hard for me to get out and ride the past few weeks.

Didn't even realize how far back my leg was when I was asking him to move his hind quarters over O.o

He is handsome and looks like a pretty smooth ride. But then again, I have always been a sucker for a good looking palomino.

On an unrelated note, I absolutely love your boots. What brand are they?

They are Tony Lamas, pretty much the only brand I own:)
