Far too many stills of Icarus again, so if you're getting fed up of seeing him, you'd better click back now! :giggles:

In the ridden class he was a bit stuffy and not on top form. But if he'd have gone like this a year ago i'd have been bouncing off the walls with excitement - so it's not all bad! :)

Getting ready to lengthen that canter again...

...and he does it! Looses it a little, but at least he's got the idea finally!

Now the fun bit - we did a little clear round. The first course on grass this year. And the first course since Icarus used his eject button on me at the second part of a double a couple of weeks ago when i thought i'd broken my elbow! It's still not right! :doh:

He thinks it's great fun! I wish he'd canter like this in his showing class! Ha ha!

It's still a struggle to keep him going like that. Without trying to be boastful i'm the only person i've met so far who can!:lol: Thank god they dont tend to have ride judges in the M+Ms until you get to much higher level showing, otherwise we'd sink right down to the bottom of the line up!:pmsl:

No worries IG you will never have a ride judge in M&M's bar the Royal Welsh! He is looking good :)

Hehe, just as i read that i got a glimpse of your sig - you're not wrong are you?!:scared::lol:

The trouble with Icarus is that by the time i've got him collected he's like a little ball of energy and he doesnt quite know how to release it in the right way!:pmsl:
