I put Tris on the longe line on Friday night because a) it was freezing, b) the new winter breeches I packed to wear – that I bought on clearance – didn’t fit despite being precisely the same size as my previous winter breeches, wtf, c) I wanted to see if he was sound again after the stomach muscle incident.
He was! Swelling 100% gone, sound as a bell. Huzzah! So I basically just loosened him up, walk-trot on the longe, kept him moving and got him to soften a bit.
Then I figured I had him nekkid so I might as well do some conformation shots!
