Sebastian has been ridden by James Cooler for a few months now but today I saddled him up and walked him around the field! My horse turns four June 18th and I think he is now at least 16 hands. The vet is visiting in April and I will have Sebastian measured.
Quite a different feel than riding Oberon, my 14'2" QH! Sebastian was a bit of a "drunken sailor" but very responsive to my light pressure. I can see what he needs now is just ... time and hours upon his back. He is very, very happy to walk along FOREVER and for now, that is FINE by me :)
Sebastian is a bit "down hill" still and has a slight dip behind his withers and I'm hoping he will grow and fill out a tiny bit more as I'd love to have the saddle fit him a bit better. I'm going to post about that piece of "equipment" soon.
