There has been a lot of that going on
Thursday I was determined to get a ride in before work. It was in the 30s for the first time, and Stinker came out like a fire breathing dragon. I was prepared for a ride just managing the excess energy. But after much sass from the barn to the ring as soon as he stepped in the ring he went right to work.
The mountain got fresh snow yesterday
Color me impressed. It is like he is actually trained or something. His trot work is starting to gain consistency. The amount of flailing is reducing every ride. It is still very underpowered, but as long as he is correct I don't care. The power will come with time and strength. We even had a couple decent transitions. Slowly and steadily he is gaining and getting better and better.
