So I started riding Cool english the other day because I finally went out and bought an english saddle that fits him. He seems to really like it and so far he's been smart enough to differentiate between trotting and jogging with the different tack. We jumped him a little bit too over a TEENY cross-rail. He didn't really "jump" it per say, but he did go over it every time and he never stopped!
Not that I think he's going to be a hunter or a jumper, but hey, its fun to do something different every now and then!
Coolio in his new english saddle! Yeah...bf looks like a hillbilly, but whatever. LOL
