As you can see, my kid is unimpressed (whats new?).
My boss is a pretty laid back fella and told me I didn't have to come back to work is I didn't want to, so when Becky said she had planned to do a training ride, I quickly decided to stay and watch. I've only been able to watch a couple of rides and I usually show up about half way through them, so to watch a whole ride after a little over a month of work was a great opportunity. They are now trotting, steering, going over trotting poles, doing leg yields and turns on the forehand in addition to backing up! Becky keeps telling me that he is a very dull 3 year old (in that he is not very reactive/responsive to aids-- or anything rather). So I wasn't expecting much in the way of refinement. Low expectations are a great thing to have sometimes because I was very impressed with what I saw. I will save you the boring run-down and show you the photos (now that I have a less-than-stellar yet still functional camera). ENJOY!
Trot Poles to remind him where his feet are!
SO? Does anyone else think I have a little 3 year old superstar on my hands? Reactive or not, the kid looked great! He is such a sweetie pie!! I get to ride him TOMORROW!!! Hopefully I can get some pictures to share with you. I know its a day that will go down in history for me too :) I LOVE this horse with everything I am.
