My ride with Stampede Saturday had a lot of ups and one almost all the way down.
The horse who could barely stand walk/trot rides in a Butet fell in love with a CWD (I had no idea how nice these saddles are honestly!). His trot already feels a 100 times better and his canter exists again. The CWD is shipping off tomorrow to get re-paneled then hopefully Stampede and I can continue on our path of improvement!
So first the down…
And a close up of when I seemed most likely not to make it through, lol.
Both of the following videos were taken after the one above. You can see in the first one he is still a bit frazzled, particularly when we canter through where he almost beefed.
Overall a good stump, this was just his third time cantering this month and first time doing lead changes this year.
