Well for the past few weeks I have been getting to know Dustry and teaching him the basic ‘stop’ and ‘go’ voice commands on the lunge and today I had a little sit on board! He behaved very well despite the high winds and the sound of guns at the adjacent shoot. He felt surprisingly big, and strong for a 3 1/2 yr old. I will ride him briefly again tomorrow then that will be him finished for the winter as he will be turned out 24/7 whilst Soap comes back in from his holiday for a full clip, and flatwork lesson. It’s only been 15 days but I think Dustry’s condition is improving and his feet are a million times better now my farrier has seen to him. See what you think, initial purchase picture on the left, and today after being ridden the 2 pics on the right.
