I only ride him on the buckle to warm up and cool down now, and the rest of the time he is round, soft, and gorgeous. He feels so much more powerful and physically mature than Bella. Riding him has gone from being nail biting at some times and hard graft the rest of the time, to an absolute joy. I have never been more grateful to a horse than I was to him tonight, for the effort he's putting in and the changes he's made, and HE'S done it, all of his own accord. I've only shown him how to, he did the rest.
He is my hero, my best friend and my shining star. I am so lucky to have them both.
