You’ve come a long way, Baron…



This video was made when Baron was for sale back in 2008, straight off the track. The girl riding him is an instructor and quite a good rider, but still Baron is trotting around like a giraffe with his head in the air. He still looks like a racehorse here, nothing like a hunter.

Fast forward two and a half years to my most recent video, and he’s actually starting to look like a hunter. We’re not perfect all the time, and he still has moments of giraffe-ness, but overall I’d say he looks a lot better. Someone with more time and money than me could have made these changes at warp speed instead of a snail’s pace; but even though it’s taken me a long time, I’m proud of the work we’ve done. I’ll turn into a real rider and he’ll turn into a show horse yet!

    Perfection in riding is but a fleeting moment that we seek to attain every time we ride. And those moments are ones to cherish.

    He has come a long way, such a handsome guy!
