Then I went to ride Comrade. Peggy told me she rode him Friday and even jumped over the little "x's" still set from the gymnastic. So I expected him to be a bit calmer. Oh yeah joke was on me. He was in a total "F you" kind of mood. Good thing is a Cob in that mood means lots of energy but nothing really bad. We definitely had some rough moments, but we did end well. By that time though it was too dark for video. The video shows most of the bad times and some of the nice times. I debated whether to share it, but decided these rides are as important as the super ones. It still shows how well he is moving now. At one point I put him through the gymnastic front portion and his stride has changed so much since it was set, he took it as a very long bounce. The next time through, he bailed. So I broke it down. That is on the video.
Some good things, an awesome lead change right to left and a true rein back. I really wish I could have ridden today because I think he would have been in the right place after burning all that energy.
Here it is, the good bad and ugly :)
