I liked the big mare from Cre farms, but honestly beyond my skill level to handle and train. This guy is pretty much readdy to ride after a few gettting to know each other in the round pen sessions.
Smart way to pick a prospect! Lovely horse.

If for some reason he doesn't work out for you, send him my way

LOL, I really like his look. Very nice horse.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

played with tack today and did a bit of groundwork. My tucker seems like a pretty good fit. At least well enough to get him muscled up. Pretty sure I am gonna order a stonewall but want him to muscle up a bit first.

It looks like that saddle will work out well. Have you ridden him yet?

He is really nice!

Joe, he's gorgeous! Congrats, I think you've found a gem there.

One quick question from someone who doesn't know a darn thing about endurance saddles, what is that smaller D-ring just underneath the cantle for? My first thought is that it's designed to attach a back cinch if you wanted, but it seems to angle more toward the flank and, seems to me, that would make the back cinch hang at an awkward angle.

He's lovely -congrats!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
