The weather is finally better, Cairo is back on pasture and he will have equine friends in a month! He is definitely not agreeing on the whole *back to work* thing. I am using this thread to track our progress this summer. Suggestions and comments are welcome. Goal for this weekend --- get in the saddle, stay in the saddle and walk one loop around the yard So far all I have managed is to get on and get assistance in practicing my involuntary dismounts. We have been doing 4-6 sessions of ground work per week since February 2017 and he was kinda broke to ride before being laid up on injury leave in September 2016. Hoping this weekend I succeed or I will have to send him to a pro trainer when we move.
