I rode Riv last night for the first time since the show. I was just going to hop on him for a few minutes, but he was being so good I ended up riding for a while and he got pretty sweaty.
Last night I rode him like my old guy. So I rode him like I meant it, and like he's capable of doing it. I've been babying him.. with him being so good at the show, I trust him more and have more confidence, so I can ride him more decisively, if that makes sense.
We did a lot of circles, transitions, etc. Nothing major, just decent work. He does loooove the stretchy trot. I tried to get video, but my phone wasn't cooperating.
Such a good boy!
