my mare LaNay has lotsa pride of midnight and ace of spades and rodgers go bpy and she is definately not a hot head she is a back pocket horse and chooses human company over other horses. she is a rescue i adopted who proved to me she was a fighter when we got her she was named bones and she was tore up from a wild cat of some type i think she laid down to die and was attacked and gods will kept her alive till we rescued her from her world of despair. she is very well mannered, and loves people just to pet her, ect. don't listen to people listen to your heart and know that this horse will serve you if he or she chooses.

Such an incredible story about your mare! She's so lucky to have been saved by you. Thank you for your support :)

My second horse was a 'Pride' horse (and I'm in Canada!) and she was pretty high strung, but under saddle she knew her job and was completely controllable. She was very forward but stopped on a dime. She couldn't stand still for a minute when tied anywhere, but under saddle she was a perfect horse. Unfortunately she colicked at age 18. The walker I have now has some 'Pride' in her and is quite spooky. I see your guy also has some Merry Go Boy in him on his sire's side. MGB also had a reputation for being a bit more intense than say Midnight Sun did. I think horses are like people. Just because your grandfather was this, that or the other, doesn't mean you will be. I think people who don't know horses, or only know them a little bit, will throw around comments like 'all pride horses are hot-headed'. It's like an old wives tale that just keeps building steam as it goes. It depends on so many factors and it's not fair to individual horses to label them based on one or two distant relatives. If your boy is calm, that's great. Don't listen to the doomsayers. Listen to your boy.
