    I used to own a saddlebred/walker/ paint mix and he was the gentlest and smoothest riding horse I ever owned. He had beautiful gaiting action as well. Even when he was just green broke I could put anyone on him and he would take care of them all day on a trail. He was a breeze to train, I just hopped on him one day and started riding him around the yard and he could of cared less (had lots of ground work previously of course). I sold him to a 12 year old girl when he was 4 and they just love him and take him everywhere. I get updates from the owners all the time.

    I have a few updated threads of him!
    As far as his weight, he is ALMOST perfect. 50lbs away maybe...
    I never got around to taking new conformation shots. But here he is image.jpgbeing a cutie.
    I look like a mess when I go riding, but at least he. Is cute. :)

    That's awesome! I'm sorry, I wasn't aware you had posted updates elsewhere, my bad.

    Is he really that tall? In the first picture he looks like a giant!

    How do you like his temperament, is he energetic, have you run him, does he like to run?

    I'm curious as I'd love to get one sometime...Something about an elegant horse under western gear riding through the woods in fall..:)

    He is 16.3so definitely pretty big.
    I have not been on him while running, but he LOVES to run. He's very energetic, part of the reason why its a pain to keep weight on him. As far as personality, he is amazing. He's a total ham.
    He is very smart and level headed. He doesn't bat an eyelash at anything. I board at a small barn, but its fairly busy at times, kids on their bikes, with little tiny dogs in tow, loud noises, cars, farm equipment etc. Nothing phases him. Except a snake once...
    I'm on the hunt for a western saddle.
    I don't know if I can ever own another breed now that I've seen how they can be. :) I definitely recommend them!

    I thought, seeing the first picture that he was a PONY!
