Red was ridden in a 7 inch shanked bit when we got him, so he tends to get stuck behind the vertical. He needs to be ridden with super-soft hands, using mostly seat and leg cues to keep him happy. It's really quite a challenge, but oh-so-rewarding when you get him going well!
After our ride, we did a spa day. Since I don't have a proper wash rack (yet), we alternated with who was holding the horses and who was hosing. The boys got baths with shampoo, and we scrubbed and conditioned manes and tails.
