We have been so lucky to have some great weather, it has allowed me to get on every horse that is in the barn and actually get somewhere with them. Ark got back to jumping and is slowly starting to figure it out again. He's got the foot falls and patterns and can usually see the distance well on his own, but really lacks the muscling to really put in any kind of brilliant efforts. 

We have been cantering jumps, cantering lines and also working on flying changes (we've got them, they're pretty close to perfect). He's generally clean over fences but not too much of a cat, but definitely seems to want to be a kids or amateurs horse. 
 
 
Well in the month since my last post, we have had probably a grand total of 6 people come out and try Arkie. He always puts his best foot forward and tries his hardest to do just exactly what the people want, and generally they are happy but no one has bitten the bullet and taken that next step of deposit/trial/vetting/purchase or whatever they want for the next step to be! 

We have been taking it pretty easy with him as we had pushed him pretty far and hard in such a short time and the different riders almost daily I think is a lot mentally for any horse to handle. We have been doing loads of trails and then some w/t/c pole work in the arena, trying to get his rear end stronger and more built up. 

The days are shorter so he is not in a very strict program, maybe out no more than twice per week, but he is always game ready and never ever changes from the good old Arkie that he is. As I tell everyone, if only I had unlimited funds I would buy him for myself, he's a total hunk, super sweet and just a blast to ride!!
