Had a good short ride. He had a little bucking fit at the canter, but it was short lived and easy to sit. He had a little “drop” spook at a tree limb down in the cavaletti field while trotting which was also short lived and easily sat. I tried him in a hackamore for the last portion of my ride and noticed he was more stretchy in the walk with it, but still rooted a little bit, and was more inverted at the trot with it. He has very easy steering though and still amazing braking mainly from the seat.
