Cupid and I have been taking it a bit easier in the past few weeks because though he got mostly better he didn't feel totally right. First it was the hoof, then I think he may have slipped in the pasture because he had some scrapes on one side and seemed a little sore. So he's just been in light work, no jumping and didn't even canter for a few weeks. We've been working on getting him used to riding with more contact. He doesn't like it, it makes him pretty fussy. And I don't help matters any because my hands tend to be pretty open so I let him pull the reins. Lunging him in the side reins helps, he's gotten pretty used to that so I just need to work on myself!
We tried on a dressage saddle. Unfortunately it didn't quite fit him, it was a little too wide, but I thought it was comfortable. I'm keeping an eye out and hopefully can find one second hand that fits us both.
