Elana, with this horse and the last one I was looking at, I listened to your advice and criticism even though sometimes I had to grit my teeth and think to myself "put your pride and your "but I want it!" attitude in your pocket, she's right." But right now I could hug you!
PS you should know that I am riding Jax in a side-pull like you suggested, and he has been going beautifully in it! Thank you!
