I had such a wonderful ride on Wilson today. He takes a while to warm up — a good 1/2 hour of trot work on the lunge or in the round pen. But then under saddle, he is just wonderful. Today was the first day he really figured out that it is easier (or perhaps more comfortable) to stretch down rather than go around like a giraffe. We have yet to canter as I think he needs a bit more work before we go there. Aside from that, he is really doing nicely. Of course, he still has stiffness and balance issues, but he’s really trying so hard and starting to figure things out. I’m so very pleased!
