Speedy is such a rock star in front of crowds that I always feel completely at ease riding him. Sure, he can spook just as well as the next horse, but he doesn't come into the arena looking for trouble. He gets excited, but he quickly relaxes and then seems to relish being in the lime light.
Each day of the Expo, Speedy just got better and better. He relaxed even more, but was still willing to work hard (except for that moment when he didn't). More on Expo tomorrow.
