Yay, back to monthly confo shots! I think he might have backslid a little this month, since I'm riding him instead of having my trainer ride him.

For comparison, here he is in July:
July 19, 2016
The main difference I notice between July and August is that he now has less muscle under his withers. I'm not as good at riding T up over and through his back as my trainer is, so that seems to be making a difference. It's something I'm way more cognizant of now, and I'm working on it, but the moment I get a bit grabby with my hands, the hind end stops working with the front end, and his motion stops right behind the saddle. I think he might have gained a few pounds too, but overall it's not a dramatic difference this month. Maybe we've sort of evened out into what a normal horse looks like? Time will tell!
