    LadyNeon01, I didn't realize he was that big!!! Geez. Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about the canter at this point - the experience is the most important part. Is he outgrowing his saddle fitting as fast as he's growing up?

    Update! The young little Aries turned 4 yesterday! He's settling into his new digs pretty well but I'm noting that he's a) quite herdbound to mares b) quite sensitive to changes in his environment and c) quite hot! We've been doing alot of ground work and longing in side-reins, but i'm going to have to go back to basics with re-backing him. I have a young dressage horse specialist coming out tomorrow to help him remember that he has been ridden before and it didn't kill him! It'll definitely help to have a ground person and a rider. Oh the brain of a young, sensitive, boy....

    I didn't realize he was that big either until I measured him. Color me surprised!

    Anyway, he hasn't really outgrown his saddle fitting yet. If anything, it fits a bit better now since we've been really working on going round. I've noticed some muscle development over his back but nothing too significant. I'm just waiting to see how much he widens out. Thankfully I have an adjustable gullet saddle when the time comes.

    And by the way, Criss is a Trak too. By Tycoon out of Cool Breeze (who is by Schoenfeld out of a TB mare).

    I'm hoping Ellie's fabulous temperament goes to under saddle work, too - being born broke tends to run on both sides of her family, so I gambled on her having the same attitude, and from groundwork have no suspicions that she is an exception. You never truly know in advance though, right?

    I think she's about 16.1 right now (I have no stick) and hope she doesn't grow much more! Her chest just started getting wider - I joke that her legs no longer come out of the same hole - so I suspect most growing will be outward at this point. I think her dam is 15.2 or 15.3, so hopefully she won't get as tall as my 16.3 gelding!

    Go Trakehners!
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.
