Oh, she's already broke to ride. (English) Currently gets worked about 2-3 times a week. Lots and lots of flat work, and slowly working our way to jumping. She's a master of ground poles. I have some hills in the pasture next door that I try to work her on, however, the heat has been preventing me from working her too hard. With fall around the corner, she will definitely get more workouts. Was just curious if the narrowness was something common in the breed, or if I should expect her chest to catch up to the rest of her. Thanks for the advice!

I have 2 right now. Here's my 4 year old gelding:



I also have a 12 year old mare with a happy ending story. I had owned her as a weanling and had to sell her right before she was 2. She went to a lady who was big into showing gaited horses. Lost track of her but always wondered how she was. 9 years later my trainer mentioned she saw her consigned to a breed auction. I contacted her current owner and bought her back before the auction. She was in KY, in foal. I'm so glad I didn't wait until the auction. She was skin and bones, sunken about an inch on her sacroiliac, so malnourished her coat was falling out, dead lame (even though they said she was sound) and 2 months from foaling. Here she is a year and a half later:



I love asbs and can't wait until we move and get our farm. Probably won't have show horses any more (moving to the UP), but I'd like some rescues to repurpose and ride/drive around the farm.

This is my gelding, Psychedelic aka Psych. He is my first ever non-stock horse, and I've only had him since June. He is the first and only horse I've ever been to an open show with, and this year we went to around 5 and won between 25-30 ribbons and medals. We show western pleasure together, though he was previously shown country pleasure and saddleseat. He is so well mannered. He will gladly plod around for miles on end, but you can just see him light up every time he enters the show ring. Hopefully we can have a good show career together. I already love him to death.

OK - I will pitch in here :)
I agree with Inga that ASBs make beautiful Western mounts :)
I am posting few photos of my 5 year old Saddlebred gelding, he's a total sweet heart.. what an awesome family horse. He's mostly family / pleasure horse - we do few local shows per season - nothing serious.

I added to my ASB collection today! :) This is Legacy's Layla and she is a four year old mare. She's on the short side for an ASB,but she's got such a presence and energy about her that you don't even really notice her short stature. She is very green and hasn't been worked with since the winter,so she definitely needs alot of work,but I think she'll be a fun project.
Here's some pics of her from her in-hand show days as a yearling and two year old,as well as when she was in training and from recently.She's a serious butterball at the moment!
