lol, I've been researching. A lot. Never actually bred one of my own but I plan to one day. I hope to one day be a top breeder of showjumping and eventing horses and ride at the Olympics on a home-bred, home-trained horse. Probably not an Anglo Arab [more likely warmblood, or wb/tb cross] but they are good versatile horses as a next step from dorkus who is a very good jumper but getting on a bit now. I need more time, and a quieter horse, to build up my confidence and ability before I start seriously thinking about breeding my Olympian!
Round penning is only part of it... Monty's pretty awesome, I can move him off my energy alone, back him up at liberty [quite a difficult thing as most horses will just turn around but as I say he's done a ton of it], the list goes on. I can do things with him on the ground that he outright refuses to do under saddle. So much fun... and I have trained a horse to do a lot of the same things but sadly that one was going to be too small for me so I sold her.
My boss has a few very nice horses I would kill to own... ahhh one day.
A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE
