...I was almost on him... almost. I was laying over him, I had a leg over him, but I obeyed the doctor, kinda, and didn't actually swing that leg over and climb all the way on. It was SOOOO tempting though.
Afterward I wanted to get some pictures of him moving.
"Come on mom, let's get this crap done and over with!"
WHEEEE! (this was as feisty as he got, a head toss, lol.)
trit trot off we go...
"I'll canter, but I am putting as little energy as possible into it."
He was a VERY good boy. No trying to quickly reverse directions, no fussing or anything. I ran him around with the bareback on tightened up nice and snug after I climbed all over him (the saddle hurts to lay over. You can see my bareback on the ground outside my flimsy round pen in that last picture, lol). the most he did was toss his head like he was annoyed when I was sending him around toward my right. he really doesn't like going that direction as much as going toward my left.
