    You go girl! He looks fantastic, great job! Especially with a warhorse like him, going to the left is all that his body knows, things take time to rebalance! Keep it up!!!

    Updating!

    He's put on good weight and muscle. I think I'll always want him fatter, but it looks like he's one of those horses who is always a bit lean. He is such a good good boy. It's hard to believe he's as green as he is because he always tries so hard.

    I look bad but he's adorable.

    He does tend to stop at a new sort of fence... plain poles, fine. Striped poles, what?? Same with flowers, boxes, etc. Usually once he has a chance to look at it and figure out what we're doing, he'll go over fine. We took a lesson with an event trainer and she gave us a lot of walk-trot stuff to work on, so jumping will be on the backburner for a while.

    I'm not sure how he'll do at eventing, given his stopping at new fences, but that's okay. I don't have lofty goals, and he's so good and fun to ride that competing isn't a big deal.

    Do not buy a Volkswagen. I did and I regret it.
    VW sucks.
