|Proud of himself after the ride!|
Our ride lasted about 25 minutes, with lots of lateral work review. Toward the end, he had the BEST walk going on. Back was up, he was pushing wonderfully from behind and had this huge, swinging walk. Like, power walk, overstepping quite a bit. He was well on the bit and on my aids, and felt spectacular. I had the biggest smile on my face because this little horse just feels so much bigger when he's really working from behind. It's so nice when you can get everything you want accomplished just by taking a walk. :)
Tomorrow will have windchill temps down near -30(F) at one point. Soonie will have his turnout sheet layered under his heavy blanket so he has a little extra protection if he gets turned out tomorrow. He did fine outside in just the heavy today though, he had his face planted in one of the round bales when I showed up this afternoon, so I expect he'll park himself there tomorrow as well.
