It’s almost February, and we are starting to get serious about showing. Our goal is set for June, so we need to start stepping up our game and Fizzy needs to start stepping up his. We are hoping warmer weather is right around the corner and we can start working Fiz more often. Not only more often, but harder. He has finally started getting in shape. He is to the point where he is no longer out of breath after trotting, or even cantering for a good period of time. Now is the time to begin to refine his training and start using some of the typical saddlebred training tools like chains and “stretchies” so while both Cindy and I were present we decided to put the stretchies on him for the first time since we have owned him. He did fantastic! A short video clip below, excuse the cell phone quality!
