Here's Rascal being ridden by Carla on day 4 of his life as a riding horse. Some shenanigans today: he was trying to evade work by skittering around and not letting Carla get on but she has more patience than he has and in the end he just had to give in to her polite and insistent requests to stand still and let her mount ... (hey fella, we're humans, and we'll live longer than you will ...). But he was also much more balanced and happy to go forward. He also did a bit of lateral work and some turns on the forehand.
Not bad for a brumby cross :-)
