We trotted!

We trotted today! I had Nick T come down to the arena so there was someone to call the ambulance if anything went wrong, but Zak was 100% fine to get on
It did take us a little bit of effort to find forward-gear, but then he was happy to walk around calmly
He got a bit tired and nappy after a while, but still gave me a couple of little trots (need to find some rocket fuel to get more go!)
What a good Zak! Need to sort out a smoother transition to trot and then a bit more balance before we try a canter. But all on track so far.
