So my SO has decided he wants to learn to ride.
Despite the fact that the times I have to teach him are at roughly 9pm in the evenings, and it has been bitterly cold in Buffalo lately, he persists. He has also learned how to do blankets, put the Eskadrons on straight, and nearly got the bridle on without any help from me last lesson.
He's been learning on my old competition horse, Alph, who I retired from competition work this summer but is quite happy to do easy lessons and be a teacher.
I made a progress video, which I personally think is completely adorable, ...but I could be biased.
