Taran Confo Shots: October

Time for October's confo shot...

Compared to his August pic, I think he looks a bit leaner, although that could be the angle (and the fact that he didn't eat his alfalfa pellets for the entire 4 days we were at regionals). The top part of the base of his neck is also filled in a little more, which I think is because I'm doing a better job of riding him through his back and allowing the motion, instead of getting grabby and stopping it behind the saddle. However, his topline looks a little less defined, which may be because we recently discovered that his saddle doesn't fit any more (oh joy, another new saddle search. Ugh.)

But overall, he looks like a fit, normal horse. How weird is that???

    1. Meh. I've gotten to the point where throwing money at saddles with a good fitter is the best, least painful/stressful option. We just don't tell my wallet until after it's happened.

  2. It is hard to really compare, since the pics are a bit askew in the first one, but he does look fitter!!

  3. I love the Paddy cameo in the background. He does look chunkier in the bottom picture, but it sounds like it was also hot all weekend, and Taran was I'm sure at least a little stressed throughout the weekend, so it wouldn't surprise me if that's the reason he looks a little leaner. He still looks great either way!

    1. Definitely not the same horse he was at the beginning of the year!

    1. Paddy is basically a photobomb waiting to happen.
