|charlie y u so go downhill tho bro?|
|i don't ever care tho. <3 this canter forever.|
|zomg go fast. or... ya know, sit up and put your ass in the saddle and try riding. just a thought!|
|LOLZ FLY STRAIGHT SON!|

But he is seriously covering ground.
|e for effort. also just in case you thought maybe i fixed my winging toes problem, nope!|
|not coincidentally, my position is maybe the best over his most boring jumps|
|as in.... not the above lol|
|we'll take it tho!|
Anyway - whatever the case, watch the video above. It's a good one. I mean, it's not a demonstration of excellent technique by either horse or rider, but it's entertaining. And honestly I'm pretty freaking happy with how the horse is going.
Do you ever get relieved when the horse can succeed despite your errors? Or when the horse feels more confident than you? I know many of you out there ride green horses and have been very responsible for instilling confidence in your mounts - but maybe there are some of you who also have your own confidence built up by the horse instead of vice versa? Or maybe it's a constant back and forth of building each other up?
