Well my 13 year old 16hh, QH is very laid back and easy going, but on trails hes hypt up and always in the lead! so 3 to 8 depending on the day.

My moms 3 year old 14+hh, little Paint mustang has SO much energy so hes 9 or 10 but after a bit of riding i can get him to come down and really listen and he still has engery for when its time to go!!

My 5 year old TB/paint is about a 5 and can go but doesnt always want to. but super sweet and loved to walk.

Beau will do what I tell him, basically.

Overall, he's a pretty laid back easy-going horse when he is ridden on a regular basis. He can get a bit "frisky" in the spring in the open fields when he's being ridden for the first week or so after the winter break.

If I want him to walk into the arena on a loose rein, my voice and my body tells him to do so. And he does.

If I want him pumping, on the muscle, and ready to get on in there and burn up some barrels, he is just waiting for me to say the word "GO".

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Rosie, my 21 year old can get a little freaked out before we go in. She stands perfectly still and you can feel her heart beat shake her whole body. She has to back in sometimes, but for the most part a little head tossing and jig is normal. Not psyco, but worked up.

Sassy hasn't started running yet, but she is a dork fish, so she will probably find SOME ridiculous way to enter. She swings her head side to side when she trots. She is just a huge goof ball. 10 bucks says she'll learn to walk on her front legs only and enter that way.
