  • Mo was a super good boy today during our lesson!! We are beginning to work on leg yielding already and he is showing steps of it! We also can do 10m circles at a trot both ways easily now, sometimes he gets unbalanced but it’s because I’m not letting go of the inside rein which means he can’t get round the corner but once I turn him round I need to let go, pat him, turn then repeat it! Having another lesson tomorrow which is exciting

  • I rode Mo today and he was really good!! We mainly worked on getting him to canter for more than 3-4 strides.

  • Got the saddle fitter out yesterday and it turns out his saddle fits him nearly perfectly!! And the half pad that he has now makes it fit perfectly which is awesome. A medium wide gullet is slightly too wide for him but the half pad allows it to fit and once he builds up topline he will fit into it much nicer. The back of his saddle is also slightly lifted but the halfpad allows it to sit on him better and nothing is causing him any pain. This is something that could also go away when he builds up muscle over his back. Unfortunately the saddle tree has the tiniest little crack but the gullet is holding it up and we are going to get the tree replaced in the next month or so.

  • Glow up or what 🤔🤔 I’m guessing the foal picture was when he was about 2 months, and the bottom picture is a couple weeks ago. His birthday is in 5 days and today I’ve had him for exactly 2 months!!

  • looking very up functional here I rode him today and his stopping is improving with every ride!! We did a few 20m circles of trot for the first time today, on both reins!! We even managed a few strides of canter on both reins but I didn’t push it as he was getting tired

  • * I’ve decided to post the show pictures individually as that seemed to be what was the majority * So Pony Club was cancelled today as it’s very very wet and the gateway to the ground is flooded 🤷‍️ Mo will get another day off today but I’m hoping tomorrow will be a lot nicer and I’ll lunge or ride him again

  • Mo being all cute today after our ride!! Everything is improving on the daily, his stopping, turning and trotting are getting better and better!!

  • I rode him today and he was really good!! His stopping and turning is getting better but there is definitely a huge amount to improve on with this. He has started trotting instead of pacing again which is even better, and he even did a little canter today!!

  • Little Mo got his teethies done yesterday, he was a very well behaved boy and he handled being sedated very well. The dentist said he doesn’t think Mo has had his teeth done in quite a while so he had many sharp points but his gums and teeth were completely healthy with no ulcers, because of this he will have he dentist out again in about 6 months to start correcting his teeth. Today he is getting washed and ready for his first show tomorrow!!

  • Two posts today but who is this horse This is from our lunging session today and I am so proud of this little man, he tries his heart out and has come so far in the ( nearly ) 6 weeks I’ve had him!!! He proves himself everyday with his heart of gold and his sassy, quirky personality that never fails to make me smile ❤️ Btw I think I’m going to need to invest in some bellboots

  • Mo was such a good boy yesterday during our inhand session! He is comfortable trotting corners on his left rein which is understandable as he was raced on the left rein. However he struggles around one corner on his right rein but he is definitely improving and if we keep trying he should be able to make two wide corners within the week here's hoping

  • My new saddle arrived today and I tried it on! The fitter is coming out soon to see how it is but I think it'll be good! I'm so excited to ride in it though
