Well finally I have been getting some steady riding in with my new gelding. The ring isn't dry enough to ride in yet so most of our sessions have been out on the roads and trails, but still, a lot is being accomplished.
I am very pleased with the way he is coming along. He is so sensiable and easy going even though he is just coming up four. We do most of our road work at a walk or slow pace and he is constantly looking around at eveything and taking it all in, but rarely spooking or…
