    I've got a Haflinger foal!
    I think he's a real beauty, but I think everybody is thinking that of their own horse

    I have a Haflinger who is extremely respectful and willing. He has the best ground manners. However, he is also very forward under saddle and a bit nervous. Another thing to consider is that they can be hard to saddle. I've heard a lot of complaints about saddles sliding forward on them because of their flat withers. Despite that, there is something special about them.

    By the way, I love Maverick's dark chestnut color with his flaxen mane.

    I don't own a Halflinger, but recently started to ride one. Until recently I had never ridden one before.
    There are two of them at my barn.
    The one I have been riding is about 13 and was maily a western horse until a few months ago.
    He has now been started on the basics of Dressage and I love to ride him. He is smooth smooth smooth. Very honest and willing to learn.
    He has a lot of Pep...
    My dressage instructor was riding him but she fell ill around Thanksgiving. So she had a gal start to bring him back into work about 6 weeks ago. That gal worked with him for a few weeks and now I take lessons on him.
    Since my instructor cannot ride she uses me to teach him things...
    Very fun little horsey!!!
    I hope that you will be able to fulfill your dreams of owning one.

    I had some non horse related injuries that were signifigant enough that I wondered if I would ever be able to ride again. I managed to over come the injuries and work hard to have the horses back in my life...
    I now have two..hehe...

    So I really hope you will reach you goals and be able to obtain your dreams....
    Horses are very good at helping us with things like this!

    My haffie is named Willy(aka Willy Wonka). I am new to the forum. We also have a paint named Blue and a tb named LT(short for lieutient). Willy was 3 when he came to us and is going on seven. He is playful, can pick up just about anything he puts his mind to, loves to put his hoofs on things. He isn't afraid of much and is curious. He is a lovely mover. Willy like many haffies loves to eat, can be very persistent and is very strong. He has taught me alot about being consistent, paying attention, and to think outside the box. Like many horses he is a guick learner which can be a good/bad thing. We feel blessed to have these wonderful creatures in our lifes.
