It was hot and buggy. I’d used up the cans of flies-spray, but neither us Kimi or I could endure the aggressive insects. Nevertheless, I put the saddle on again with no protest or fear from Kimi.
I put a snaffle bit in his mouth. This was the first time he showed himself as a beginner. Just like every colt; he spent the rest of the session mouthing it and attempting to spit it out.
I took the bit out of his mouth and put on a bosal. I jumped on bareback and this time I threw my right leg over his back. I petted him moved around a bit and then jumped off. He stood solid unaffected. After that I gave up on account of the nasty bug situation, I turned him loose in the bigger pasture
