He couldn't canter to save his life when we got him and is now competing Elementary, will do some Mediums later this summer, flying changes almost established and is off to the Winter Champs at Hartpury for 2 classes this week. Judges now comment on how amazing his canter is!
So keep up the good work and don't think there's a limit to what you might achieve with him.
Thanks - Its great to see a 'big' horse like Willie doing so very well - I think I'll be the factor to hold us back, not Willie, plus we dont have transport so we're restricted to a single (low level, unaffiliated) competition venue within hacking distance - BUT - you have inspired me, and hopefully Willie will be with me for some time (I only loan him at the moment, I'd love to buy, but just cant afford that lump sum at the moment) - and assuming I have him for some time to come, I hope I can get up to the levels you have Boston, maybe if i could win the lottery I can buy him and a lorry - keep your fingers crossed!!
