Blaze under saddle! (img heavy)

My BF only took pictures of us warming up, thus the long reins and why these pictures aren't in the critique section. This is my new saddle, and only my 3rd ride on Blaze since I've had him. I need to lengthen my stirrups a hole fo sho

Missy, that last pic with you smiling says it all. I think you did well with your choice and will a little more muscle, he's going to be a looker!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Thanks Bill I really adore him. He's mellowed out so much, loves to be around me (case in point, I hopped off after my ride yesterday, left the reins over his head and walked to the rail to chat with my BF and Blaze followed right behind without my leading him) and is just the coolest guy.

I do think he gets a little bored by arena work (he was uber pokey yesterday and it took urging to keep him in a trot), so I need to figure out ways to keep that interesting, plus make sure to take him on hacks on the weekends.

Ha, yea. He's actually come with me other times before and taken a boatload of photos w/my on Spree at w/t/c, but yesterday was windy, I was just kind of tootling around, and he'd brought a book from school to read.

Blaze farted on him as I was untacking; it was hilarious

Montana did the same thing a few times to Tom! When I was bringing him out, I had to turn him around in the aisle way, and once when Monty's butt was in Tom's direction, he farted a few times! Lol

Haha, our boys are trying to assert their dominance over our men. That's hilarious. Do you call him Monty? That's adorable.

yeah at times. When he's being good its Monty. When I want him to come its Montana (in a happy voice) and when he's being bad its "Montana" in a non happy voice

Very cute pictures! :) Just wondering - how tall is Blaze? He looks pretty big to me.
