Once upon a time the furry little fat monster couldn't even trot with a rider on his back on a curve without falling over. Now he starts cantering whenever he feels like it, and if I actually ask him to canter will canter around and around the arena (except for the little nappy area's). He's getting better about picking up the left lead as well. He seems to really like his new saddle, seems freer through the shoulder.
Going to his first 'real outing' tomorrow!
