So I have done some reading and, yes they were bred for mainly color. The buckskins and palominos being most prized.
They are said to defy every conformation rule in the book. The lady from where I'm going said that they are very hard to fit to saddle with their long round backs.
Explain cryptorchidism... I have never heard of it before.
So far as I know, I will be helping exercising the two race horses, and then helping with the training of the younger ones. A three year old to break, two year olds to to saddle and ground train, and a yearling to halter break. I will also be helping with general stable work.
They train with Paul Dufresne's methods. I read some articles on his site and found it quite interesting.
I am super excited to be doing this! Hoping to learn a lot!
I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
