First Canter

This time with breastplate!

He uses himself a lot more at the trot and I almost felt 'left behind' at times - going to have to get a wee bit fitter for this guy (losing weight would also help, and I am sure make the whole picture a lot more aesthetically pleasing)

However, I can see that in time he is going to look quite nice under saddle, particularly once he puts on some weight and develops some muscle.

I even felt brave enough to have a wee canter - lovely long lollopy strides (surprising that, given his height!)

I can see also that I am still tilting, so will have to pay some attention to my riding. But for now getting quite excited about the wee boy.
