I decided to turn him out when I got there to see what kind of energy he had going on. I was going to lunge him, but figured that since the arena was available I'd go for that - and grab my camera, of course!
I'm glad I did.

And the next one I liked the shadows on his face...
He was so fast I missed out on some shots - like this one - he's out of the frame. But I liked it anyway.
And I wish this one was in focus...
Ah well, I did manage to get a short video clip - he sure seems to be having a good time!
Oh, yeah, I also rode him! :-) Had a great lesson and some really nice transitions. Came home with a blister on a finger though.
Guess I have to toughen up!
