The journey of a 50-something woman and her twelve year old Straight Egyptian Arabian, Thee Ashke
OMG Karen what a difference in him from just the last set of photos of arena work! He looks so much more consistently relaxed and using himself. That second photo of him walking is a classic example of a horse walking with lifted withers, engaged. And his trot! And his canter! This is the best set of photos of you two at the canter so far! Love the way he looks in the first video when you are initially trotting around before tackling the pole sidepass...he looks better than in that video you had posted of Cassandra riding him! And love his expression when you praise and pat him. He looks so proud of himself and happy!
He does like it when he gets it right. We are still a work in progress and I did pick my favorite photos to showcase how well he is doing. But, that aside, thanks for the great feedback. I love the saddle. He loves the saddle. I'm very pleased with how he is doing.
Wow! Looking great! You must be so proud!
So stunning. What a difference!
You guys look great!!!! I'm so impressed with the sidepass video hehe. He is so handsome!
