Getting there

Not ready for the "after" photo yet, as he is still a 'work in progress', but so pleased with how he is developing thought it would be nice to have an on the way pic.

Well it has taken a good week but he is almost over the sneezing wheezing spluttering that rendered him virtually unrideable. Obviously the meadow chaff just did not agree with him. So I am very pleased to be able to get back into riding him again.

He is still very hard work, but is coming ever more soft and consistent in his outline, and the upwards transitions are getting better and better. It is the work within the paces that is most difficult at the moment. Both Mum and Saarin tell me that he looks nothing like a green horse going (but he most certainly feels it!).

Still having mounting issues, and may try some other ideas to resolve that one, as he is definitely not worried in the slightest about me mounting, but it is rather a snag to need someone else to assist.
