sweet horse :) I love blanket appoloosas. I ride a strawberry roan (not sure..) appoloosa at my riding school. She is crossed with a TB, but she is the sweetest horse.

LOL I told myself I would never own one because every single one I rode absolutely sucked (for lack of a better word)

They were psycho, hated to be separated from their little stablemate (even if they were still SURROUNDED by horses, they would freak out because their neighbor wasnt riding with them). And I had one brilliant soul who spent his days staring at the sky... and when on a trail ride, he tried to take me up a rock face at a 75 degree angle. I was thoroughly burnt out.

Then, 2 Christmas' ago, I went back to CA to visit my folks, and when I got to the ranch, Jody, my mentor, was riding a little blue roan App. She said "Hey Mary! I was saving him for ya! Come on and have a ride!" And I replied "NO WAY! Are you crazy?!" She told me to trust her, and I do.. so I rode.. begrudgingly.. LOL

This little App rode better than some QH's I've ridden. Both on trail and in an arena. He was trained to be roped off of, and is a pretty accomplished little reiner (with the sliders on, he had a 15 foot slide)

But then again, the App I have isnt foundation. He is more of the "new style" Appy, built like a QH. No mane but a long tail, short and stocky, QH head, etc.

One appy completely redeemed my faith in ALL apps. Even after like. 7 Apps in a row were absolutely terrible.. this one was SO nice.. that he helped mend the bridges that the other Apps burned.. LOL

He is in my banner in my presentation =) He is awesome.. and currently teaching my husband how to ride ;D

....I don't know if that would be true that they have mule in them, maybe. It's not the spotted or blanket coat that makes a appolossa, I Forgot the three things but I remember 2, the 1st is they must have striped hoofs, and the 2cd is that the whites of there eye is showing, I can't remember the 3rd.....crap, I will get it.
