Who would you ride and why?
It's about 4degrees F today and I don't feel like going to work. One of the perks of being self employed!
So out riding we have some stupid discussions (and there are many) But one of the fun ones is: If you could ride any horse that ever lived, who would it be?
The most common answer is Trigger for obvious reasons. There are so many other options.
The horse named after the man "Morgan". The man named for his horse "Tashunka Witko". We know him as Crazy Horse, but his horse was magnificent. Man of War was fast and huge. Hildalgo (which actually means elk dog, not big dog). Secretariat, Three bars, Impressive, The list goes on and on.
So after many years of this topic I've came to my conclusion: Mr. Ed from the old t.v. show. He's kind of a smart ass but a better conversationalist than some of the people I've been riding with. I talk to my horses out solo a lot but all they ever say is thththth. I'm not really sure what that means. It could be anything from get off me, to let's go home who knows. With Mr. Ed it would be much more clear. And sometimes he had some good insight to life.
So if you could ride any horse of all time who would it be and why?
