It amazes me how GOOD he is.
Yes, we're hanging out bareback with no reins. Prior to this, we were walking around the property on a loose rein. Although I did pick up long enough to walk a circle in each direction. He managed to walk one whole circle to the right without falling in badly! A moment of yuckyness here and there, but no big deal.
Oooooh, look at the crazy Thoroughbred!!
