Bank President aka “Banker” has had a busy summer of training in his new life and we finally did our first horse show in August. Not sure which one of us was more nervous entering the ring. We started in the baby jumpers but moved on quickly to level one and two. He was quite naughty in the baby class with the small jumps and lots of time to play. So at the risk of scaring him we moved him up. I don’t know what he was like on the track but this horse has some pluck! He was brave, willing and double clear!

Just a quick note from Minnesota. Banker is excelling at everything, he really is too smart for his own good. He is learning to bend and we have almost got him over the playful bucking issue. He has an amazing canter stride and really tries hard to please. He is so cute when her free jumps! He gets all excited now and you can’t even hold him at the end of the ring anymore.

Banker and I have had our first ride which was fun and interesting. It feels like a long way up when you sit on him, thankfully I stayed up there = ). He took the first few minutes to show me what a “feel good” horse he is and I showed him that its not my first time. After the “show and tell” time we settled into a nice trotting circle. That is pretty much all we’ve been able to do as he is still recovering and I don’t want to push it with him.
