What a lovely night to ride. Warm and comfortable with crisp clean fall air.
He's so much fitter now - We worked in the ring for almost thirty minutes. The canter was a clean three beat in both directions, with some counter canter, good contact without curling behind the bit or lifting his head & dropping his back. He gave me a working trot that I could sit even despite my own physical limitations. Then he really stretched out and motored on as we walked the track in the fading light and dropping temperature, keeping well ahead of our taller 16h riding buddy.
