    I saw a post on a Saddle Seat page on facebook looking for black tack and wondered if it was you!

    Cute photo!

    Captain was SO relaxed today. We did about an hour and a half of trot work and patterns. We also picked up both canter leads for a few strides. His head stayed low and collected and I could feel him using his whole body so nicely. His sitting trot was especially nice and elastic.

    Before I hopped on, I did stretches with him for the first time and lunged him on his off side for a while to get him warmed up since he has a lot of trouble picking that canter lead up. He picked it up PERFECTLY on the first try!! That has honestly never happened before. It usually takes a few tries. New preride routine? I think yes! No good pictures today besides our selfie and I look dumb lol but he's cute so I figured I'd keep it :p

    Ugh, look how supple this horse has gotten :love::love::love: Dream horse status. Spooking is almost non-existent and he's building a lovely hind end and back

    BO just sent me this picture of Captain. I'll have to get more when the roads clear up. Gosh, he's gotten chubby. I haven't really realized it until now and his butt looks so round compared to how it used to be. It's so rewarding to see our progress. FB_IMG_1484002748215.jpg
