Thanks you guys! I need all the support I can get, I am pretty nervous about the trail classes as he is big and scopey so hard to get him to maneuver quietly through the obstacles
- sorry for the upcoming picture overload, but I drove to Nebraska to get him on May27, so here is are monthly pictures since showing his progress. He has grown 3 inches since May and tons of filling out - we are doing lots of trotting around our property and the nearby hills, then showmanship and trail lessons. He is worked twice a day at least six days a week, about 20 to 30 minutes for most.
When I got him he was halter broke, and that's about it, was hanging out with the other yearlings in the pasture. He has been to three APHA shows, and has One Grand and One Reserve Open Halter Champion wins, 6 halter points, 3 in Amt and 3 in Open, and tobiano color points. Very excited to get the halter points because they are large classes here in Colorado with some nice halter geldings. He isn't a halter horse, obviously, but he is big and correct and the judges seem to like that.
From the day his previous owner put him on the trailer until now:
