Letting him trot out a bit...



He's learning to break at the poll... Please excuse the laziness, I normally ride in a loomis but didnt feel like switching out the bits that morning.

To break at the poll, does that mean he tucks his chin towards his chest?

The third pictures shows it the best. It's the curve in his neck about 6" from his ears. It is one component of getting a horse collected.

Yes, thank you. The third picture is definitely the better of the two. In the first, he's bracing a bit. In the third he's easing off of the bridle a bit more because I'm asking for bend in his body as well. (he had been dropping across the arena to avoid the muddy spot there)

Gorgeous horse!!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
