I went out and got Biscuit out of his paddock and walked him up to the wash rack. I curried and then brushed him all over. He is shedding and hair was flying all over the place. I used my round knife to clear out his frog channels....just a little touch up. He got several handfuls of treats.
I saddled him up and took him in to the arena. He moved the first time I went to mount up and I fussed at him and put him back in the right spot. I was able to mount up with no trouble. We walked for a few rounds and then started jogging/trotting. He did a good job after he settle down. He always tries to evade the bit by turning his head to the left. He was a total toot about backing up but he yielded across the arena dang near perfect. We rode for about 36 minutes and then I put him up. I gave Sarge a carrot.
I am hoping to ride every day this week except for Thursday. It will be in the arena but better than not riding at all.
