Rascal n' Rudy is the Best Senior Horse. My Trainer bought him when he was three, Abused and Full of worms. He's a Morab. She had to completely regain his trust and retrain him. He disciplines English(jumping, Equitation, Beginner Dressage) and Western (Gaming, Pleasure, trail). You can not ride him for months and when you go to ride him again he is almost exactly the same as when you left him. He started as a great barrel racer until he through his back out and wasn't really ridden for about a year. He adores little Kids and will always take care of them no matter what. If you fall off he will put his head down and you can hold on to his mane and he will pull you up. he is now 27 years old and is still chugging along. he can only carry smaller younger riders in his old age but will always please his rider. Everybody who has met him has loved him he is most defiantly the Best Senior Horse.

AJ is an Arabian standing at around 15 hands 3
Why is he the best horse? Hmmmm, let me see!
Whether Iím galloping across the fields, or jumping over rails
AJ is there to make sure i donít fail!
Beautiful bay, a star between the eyes
AJ lends me wings, so I truly can fly.
Heís taught me most of what I know
On how to ride a horse
I can sit a buck or a rear, a cat leap or a failed jump!
Thanks to AJ and his quite large rump.
Iíve been having lessons on him for about 6 years now
When I think Iíve over mastered him, or think ĎIím too goodí
AJ likes to show me wrong, and shows me heís too good!
He tests me, but only as much as Iím ready for.
ĎCause heís a gentleman like that
He waits for me when I fall off, and nickers for me to get up
Iíve been trod on, smashed in the face, bitten, received multiple concussions, bruises, stiff legs, blisters, rope burn, squashed toes, kicked knees and ripped out nails. PresentsÖgifts from this horse ;)
But with all his faults, the pain both him and I have received.
He never, ever fails to please.
When I canter him around the jumping course
Or let him gallop through water
When he takes me on trails
Or spooks at a garbage bin, or a swaying tree
AJ always gives it his Ďallí and tries his best.
Heís built up my legs muscles and soft kind hands.
Heís taught me patience, love and what it means to ride a horse
Heís a pig too, I know, the description above makes you think of a quite nice horse
AJ is that, I must say, but also a pig, and idiot of course!
He rubs me against trees in an attempt to get me off
He stops cantering at the slightest change in leg pressure
He avoids the bit, my leg aids, and spoken commands.
He wonít back up unless the pressure is evenly distributed
He runs off at the last minute, bolts, gets distracted
He refuses jumps if Iím the slightest bit un-balanced
But with of that, AJ truly is the best
He has made me the rider I am, the rider I will be, he has made me my best!
I can saddle up in about 6 seconds flat
And untack in about 2
I can rug up, feed and groom in a few seconds too while talking on the phone
Heís been there for my worst moments, and Iíve been there for his
Heís happy to stand still while I make a fuss, while I take photos, stretch his legs, clean his face
We conquer the world together, celebrate and love
So when I watch his muscle, his grace as he moves
His spirit so truly free
I am amazed, Iím in awe
I feel proud that I can ride him that together we move in time.
That I can dance with him, can conquer jumps, tests, courses, that I can barrel race, and pole bend, trot, canter, walk.
That I can explore with him, gallop on him, cross rivers, creeks, roads, hills, trails, fallen trees.
That he has taught me to deal with problems, to live, to love, to run
It has made me realize,
AJ isn't the prettiest horse, the fastest, the fittest.
He hasn't been to the Olympics, won any national championships.
AJ has the most heart.


Gotta Gallop,
