He celebrated his birthday by....having a day off and watching me pick up poop lol. I'm sort of in the middle of some field management tasks at the minute so he had a nice chilled birthday of just being cute and getting cuddles from small children so he had a great day!
I did ride him on Monday and he was super good. We kept it super simple because it's been a good while since he was properly schooled. We worked on some transitions between gaits and within the gait, focussed on his bend and popped a little bit of leg yielding in there too. Nothing too dramatic or ground breaking but super fun!
After I rode I brought him out of the top gate of the field and rode him down the lane back
to the yard to try and practice hacking alone
