thank you for the nice comments. Yes, I have been riding him. He is extremly smooth, I do have a couple of things that I am working on. He thinks that he has to stay right with any other horse and rider, but he is quickly learning that if he yells out to the other horse then he has to do a lot of one rein stops and circles. My the end of my ride he decided that he didn't care about the other horses.

I probably have to go through this a few times but he is already 90% better. I think it has to do w/ him being cut just a little over a month ago. Other than that he seems like he is going to be my dream horse.

He is easy to catch, comes running to the gate when he sees me and whinning.

His ground manners are perfect and he is not aggressive to the other horses.

I am extremly happy with him.

I just wanted to give a quick update. I went on a New Year's Eve ride w/ my new horse with about 15 other people. I am so proud of my new boy he was a perfect gentleman. He did everything he was asked plus more.

He is my dream horse. I have been concerned that he may be more than I could handle but I have took it slow w/ him and worked him everyday doing a lot of groundwork. Yes, today it all paid off.

It was important to me that he did well today because three of the ones that I was riding w/ are professional trainers of big time show horses. The person that has been helping me to work w/ my new horse was also there.

My heart was racing in my throat for the first three miles of the ride scared that he might do something to prove that he was more than I could handle. He was doing such a wonderful job and everyone keep braging on him that I settled down and truly enjoyed the ride.


Needless to say, he got extra rub down and his favorite treat when he got back to his stall.

What a wonderful way to end the year!!!!!

Thank you & Happy New year to you, too. I have a stepson living in KY, so I'm glad to see that the weather is nice.
