I mean, seriously! Look at Jack (then known as Chester) the day I tried him for the first time compared to my lesson last Saturday.
Granted, we didn't know each other at all in that first picture. But really, he was fat, his tail was thin, and he was in an elevator bit! His eye looks so worried then, and now he's so calm and relaxed, shiny, fit, and with a better tail!
Just had to post about this because I was looking at those original pictures yesterday. He is not the same horse, and I love it!
