As promised, here is Roger's video time-line. It starts back in Feb of this year (2011) when we had the first ride. This was after we'd had him for a month or so. We got him as a scraggly 7 year old, head to toe in rain scald, and three days out from ending up at the market, and lord only knows if he was to end up as dog meat :( So my good friend Georgie rescued him, we bought him together and started all the hard work. She did hours upon hours of groundwork, and I did the ridden work. He was completely green, had no steering whatsoever , but we could both see he had unbelievable potential, so we gave him a go. Little by little he improved, obviously there was a lot more that we did with him then what's in the video, but we started to get him round, canter leads, and get him jumping. WHAT A JUMP he had on him, my god! I have never been on a horse with such a ping, and not only was he fun to ride, but he was safe as well, having never refused the whole time we had him. We took him out to adult rider's club, a dressage show, and more jumping days than you can poke a stick at and started to have a lot of fun with him ...
