I only own one horse at the moment, though I've taken on a second as a project. Saphira is an Arabian mare, found her in the back 40 of a breeding farm that had gone out of business. I got her in November of 2009, and she turns 6 in March. I have finally really started putting miles on her, now that I'm borrowing a friends saddle that actually fits her. She's doing great walk and trot, and now that I'm borrowing my friends saddle I can start actually cantering her under saddle. I had another trainer get on her the other day, and she said that my horse is doing wonderfully, and definitely has a ton of potential. So we'll see, though I'm trying to sell her or lease her out, because I don't have the money or time for her right now. It was much easier when all we were doing was ground work. I'm heading towards dressage with her, possibly some jumping down the road if I keep her, though I'm terrified going over anything higher than 3'. I train horses for a living right now, so everyone else's horses take precedence over her unfortunately.
Kap is the project horse I started working with, on the days I am able to be out at the barn most of the day. He's a 2 almost 3 year old Arabian gelding, owner has just left him and his mom in their stalls, and after the farrier couldn't catch him to do his feet, I called and asked the owner if in my free time I could get him out and work with him. Right now we are just working on getting out and actually having an outlet for his energy. He's pretty well built, though he has HUGE cheek bones. I have him in my horse size halter, and the throat latch is almost too tight still. I would do an oversize, but then it definitely wouldn't fit the rest of his head lol. He is also gray like my mare. I am apparently starting up a collection of gray Arabs lol. I love working with them, and love the experience I get teaching them things, and working through their attitudes.
