Riding Bold Hawk

  
Today I rode Tipper after a long break and lots of different problems he is finally sound and ready to be ridden. I only walked him as I don’t want to risk any problems re-occurring, but as you can see he looks pretty happy with himself.


Here we are turning, I am holding the reins in such an odd fashion because I am trying to get him to follow the bit. He was mostly very good a little ignorant and a little fresh but all in all a very well behaved chap.

Before I go I would like to say thank you to my many blogger comrades that have offered advice and well wishes with regards to Bold Hawk, and I would also like to say a very special thank you to Abby who gave me a selection of books for my 18th Birthday, the books have proven very helpful with my riding and with getting Tipper back on track. Here is a link to Abby’s lovely blog, My Spotty Pony

How great to see pictures of you riding Tipper, and despite all the different problems, he is looking really well.
Thank you for the link Edward, I am really pleased you found the books to be of some help to you.
Kind regards, Abby

He looks pretty good!
Even I have to use a leading rein like that sometimes with mine...though my seat, wall rein&leg + focus are clearly stated for direction!

Keep up the good work Edward!
