    Sounds like Buddy is a natural and a star, but fair warning, the 'acid test' will be about the 3rd or 4th time out, when he 'knows' what's coming. Not that you should do anything differently, just a teensy little thought to file away for reference! You would pretty much know when he comes off the trailer if he has developed any qualms or ultra-enthusiasm!
    Oh, I do hope he remains stable! He hunted before I got him, so he's been exposed to fast runs, jumping and flying about. He's probably going to get bored packing my sorry arse around Second Field, but oh well! I do appreciate the warning. He's such a sane, sweet horse that I could get easily lulled into a false sense of security.

    Here's a picture of us at a hunter pace 2 weeks ago. I know I'm biased, but isn't he a sweetie?

    Very cute!

    Oh, well, if he has hunting experience, I expect you'll be fine!

    Though I can relate that a qh I hunted for twenty years, once I was mainly whipping in off of him, did every now and then get a bit peeved with being relegated to the field! But even when one has no brakes, there's always steering!

    As between first and second field, less of a concern in my experience- they 'know' that's their group and don't typically get concerned about what others are doing.

    Default At last, at last

    it is just so much fun for both the rider and the horse.
    there will come a day when you look at those plodding around indoors all winter and think they are just nuts.
    while they may think the same of us we at least know better.

    PS rt66 the new horse is working out well, thanks for the tip.
    more hay, less grain
