Training Notes on Bounced:

Trot work:

  • Moving forward from the leg
  • Moving away from the leg into the hand ( inside leg to outside hand)
  • Balancing on to the hind end and strengthening hind end
  • Letting go of his shoulders and taking longer, flatter,bigger steps traveling forward and straight (very important for hack winner in the hunters....he is well on his way!)
  • Focusing on trot for strengthening and balance
  • Bounced is very light in the mouth when ridden from the leg

Canter work:

  • Working on transitions
  • Balancing in corners
  • Bounce's right side is stronger than his left at this time

Jumping:

  • Bounced is trotting and cantering piles of poles and small x rails
  • He is very willing
  • We are working on pace and rhythm more than height!

Lead Changes:

  • Bounced is a natural, he just needs to be taught!

Notes:
Bounced is a 16 hh, dark bay gelding who is turned four in April. He should mature to about 16.1 or 16.2 hands tall. He is quiet,sweet and ELEGANT! This beautiful boy just has no desire to run. He is sound enough for any career - he will do any thing you want. "Bounce" has no vices or problems. He is sound, clean legged and has a nice head carriage when he works. He looks like a stakes winner but he has no competitive drive. He can gallop two miles and not come back blowing. He floats when he gallops. He is a gorgeous mover. Bounced is sound, well mannered, very laid back and not nervous He is very elegant. He should excel in any discipline. Bounced is a grandson of
Unbridled (who won almost $5 million dollars) and a great grandson of Fappiano, Alydar and In Reality. He has a great pedigree for racing but he wants to do something less competitive as he is too laid back for racing. Click here to see his pedigree.

Suitable for:
Eventing, Hunter/ Jumper, Dressage, Fox Hunting
