First Trot- Didn’t Die

So P has been doing lots of trotting, but zero of it has been with me in the saddle. One of the main reasons being that if he were to spook or flip out, I could get control of him quicker from the ground. But another (unspoken) reason has been because I’m terrified I’ll feel lameness. So thus far I’ve done all his trot sets in-hand, then hopping on him for his last few minutes of walking.

Favorite view

But the day where I trotted him under saddle had to come sometime and yesterday the Millbrook stirrup leathers arrived, so it seemed as good a time as ever. BO graciously videoed the momentous occasion, and P and I trotted for the first time under saddle since AUGUST!
