Thanks for taking the video, Balou looks fantastic!!! I am so happy with the evidence of improvement in his passage and trot extension, even just on the first ride. The Obrigado [Saddle] clearly allows him greater range of motion through the shoulder. Heis always had a good passage, but some of those steps were the best Ive seen him do! And we have a respectable GP extended trot too! Can’t wait to ride again today...
