    Well said Darkchylde, I don't like breed snobs either. I don't know how many times I get "that look" from other horseman because I ride mustangs. What's funny is that they give me the look and then it gets worse after me and Dobe go out and kick their butts at anything we do. :) LOL. I love mustangs and know that they are capable and willing companions. AND SOOOO LOVING. As for training them, sometimes it can take more patience but they are very smart and willing to learn. Koda was 5 when I got him and had never been handled but I had to leave him turned out for a year because I didn't have time to mess with him. This August I caught him and decided it was time. Within 4 hours of catching him, I was riding him and 3 days later we were working cattle. Even now, he only has maybe 30 rides because of time constraints but is neck reining, spinning, and doing sliding stops. They are not really pretty at this point but he is sooo easy to train. I really don't see the difference between a mustang and any other breed when a weanling has been turned out to pasture until they are 3 and never messed with. The only thing is that mustangs have a heightened fight or flight reflex and every now and then, you will get one that is more likely to bolt. No more often than any other breed tho.you can check out my barn cause I think I have pix of both of mine on there.
