Pictures from tonight's training

Tonight's session was much better. I had more concentration from the Big Guy. Yes! I got in some riding tonight! I even managed to snap a few pix of him to share since it's been a long while since I've posted any!

This is just after we finished our groundwork and I switched from the rope halter to my bridle so I could ride. (dont'cha love his scary glowing eyeballs from my flash!) It was good to get back in the tack tonight after yesterday's change of program!

You can never have too many nice head shots of your horse. The fun part of having a paint is...'s good to take a picture of each side since he looks different in each direction!

Ahh, back in his stall and waiting for that all-important after workout treat!

OOOO what a handsome bugger Rugby is! He looks fantastic!

Glad you got in a really good session with him, and got him focused back on track too ;)

Rugby looks great! Glad you got some riding in this time. He is really coming along with his training.

And, yes, love the fact that he has two different profiles. Pretty from either direction! *S*
