Took my boy for a fun training & fun day at the trainers' that fixed his bucking issue this past spring. Hands were shaking as I was getting him ready to ride, I hate being in the spotlight, it was also a bit too cold for me. But I soon had to ignore all that and deal with his halfassed listening, lol. One pic I am leaning because I was looking for the cone, but I soon stopped bothering with that, he didn't care if he knocked it down or it touched him, awesome. He also chewed on the cones, pictured! Rode w/o stirrups a few rounds as well, feels a bit closer to bareback when I do that. Yeah, I'm an odd duck. Anywho, they repeated how much they love him, he tries and has a good head on him and all that. Everyone that meets/works with him end up loving him to bits!
Bareback ride on the hay/winter pasture to check for any stray square bales of hay, like a rancher ridin' a horse to check fencing or cattle. lol. But much, much slower.
He didn't spook at any of the three hay equipment implements, nor the old plow. He did just ~have~ to touch the tedder, it moved, lol, but no spook. Some birds also suddenly flew off 30-40ft away, he couldn't care less. Such a great horse. Fudging love him!
Got it on sale, half off, but couldn't choose color. Not that bad, gotten used to it, lol.
It straps on, then clip holds it up. Haven't lost it yet. Nor have I washed it yet, but I use it all the time & don't want it still wet when I run out with it. When I'm wearing real pants again, I'll wash it, lol.
