We've hit about 40 mph on a stubble field, that was fast enough and at the end it was one of those thank goodness I'm still alive feeling, that was AMAZING! but I don't want to do that again for a little while

Yay! A thread just for us!

He's a hat rack. I saw this thread & in the spirit of the holidays decided to share. I actually never had a thing for thoroughbreds until I met this goof ball.

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

I have an ex point-to-point gelding called Praetorian Guard (: he's 17hh, and so chilled out I wouldn't think he was a TB without his pedigree! (By Exit to Nowhere out of Songs of Innocence). He's not an easy keeper, but with plenty of haylage and hard feed he does keep his weight on ok. Fingers crossed he's going to make my event horse, but meanwhile we're working on basics... like stop.

My TB is very calm too, when I first got him he was 9 and was CRAZY, he was a lesson horse and was not happy about it at all. Since the day I brought him to our own property and he's been a "one person horse" to my mom and I, he couldn't be happier. Sweetest boy ever, I love TB's, I have trained quite a few of them and they will always be my favorite breed!
