He's Back!

I do apologize for the last few weeks. Between business away from the facility and technical difficulties I haven't been posting, but now I'm Back!
We are making plans for the actual trip to Madison. We are still looking for sponsors to assist in travel expenses. Presently it is looking like the cost of fuel alone will be over $2,000 round trip. It is not too late to be part of the Midwest Mustang Makeover 2008!
For the most part, the mustang is trained and ready to go. Ruben has been refining movements and having fun. A signature move Ruben likes to end his exhibition rides at horse expos across the country with is the bow. The mustang seems to like doing this and performed it the first time when asked under saddle. I will be sharing videos of it as soon as I work it out with Seems there is a problem still uploading videos and I get booted off line and have to start over again. I can be a slow learner at times. I may have to put them on Stay tuned or leave a comment and I can e mail them to you. If you search for ruben mustang makeover on, you may find them there.
You can't really see the action in this picture of the passage, but it is pretty and look at the head set!

The mustang does jump them, but he also side passes over the barrels.
I am not sure how big the squares are that they have to do spins in, but we are making it smaller and smaller all the time.
