I have a beautiful TB mare, just turned 4, she's got a great character, is full of personality, has a great heart and is one of the most athletic horses I have ever ridden. The *WANTING* to please from her is just amazing.
I got her green as grass last year, and the learning from her and her from me has been a fantastic experience. In my opinion all breeds have their good and bad, but the TB is one of the most misunderstood. Yes she's hot, yes she's highly intelligent, yes she's mine =) She is EXACTLY what I wanted when I was looking for a horse and has exceeded my expectations in every regard.
The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson
