PLEASE READ BEFORE COMMENTING: I was working on ground driving with Flash and on collection and head lowering with Snickers as well as getting used to him still.

I made a mistake with Flash and asked too much of him too soon - this was his second time working on ground driving, and it obviously did not go well (the first was actually a little better, but not by much). As noted at the end, I bought a surcingle and lunge cavesson to do ground driving with before adding the bit again, but before we even move to that, we're going to spend a while working on things he's already been successful with. I'm in no hurry to train him, so I'm going to take a few steps back and take more in-between steps.

With Snickers, I'd like to note that he's the first Arabian I've ridden after being raised with Quarter Horses, so I'm still getting used to his gaits. I've also never ridden English, but this saddle fit him whereas my western didn't, so I'm learning the basics for his sake. I know my posting form is probably terrible, but as I'm not showing him but rather doing endurance, I'm more concerned about the functionality of staying on the horse rather than the perfection of earning blue ribbons :)

I just add these things so you know I know this is a far from perfect demonstration of horsemanship and riding haha.
