Update from volunteer rider Lucy:
Deeds was fun today . . . with all the windy weather, he brought out his get-up-and-go! I was really excited because today was the first time he really accepted contact (rather than being behind the bit). So it appears we are making progress on that front. I think he would make a great training and first level dressage horse one of these days. He still has a ways to go because we are just getting flashes, nothing consistant yet. But I think he will physically hold up to that level of work and he is a very willing learner. He is such a blast to play with!
