I'm not sure if I'm just reading things wrong or what, but you've never ridden before? Like any horse?

No, he doesn't have a freezebrand. His mother does - he was born on the ranch. :]

And, that is correct. I've never ridden that I can remember. It's kind of a learning experience for the both of us.

Aha, you've never ridden and he's never been ridden? I hope you know that is a horrible combination and it's very possible (I would say likely) that one of you will end up hurt if you try to do it all by yourselves. Please at least tell me that you've got a trainer working with him to teach him how to be ridden and you are taking lessons to learn how to ride.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Haha, oh no, no. We aren't doing it by ourselves! The ranch owner is very experienced in training horses, so when I'm not out there, he's working with Thor, and he's going to fully gentle Thor in, then teach me to ride on one of the other horses that he has already gentled.

I'm just helping with some of the ground work, as the ranch owner believes that the more I help, the stronger our bond will be. He suspects Thor will respond to me and only me, as he doesn't listen very well to the ranch owner unless I'm right alongside him.

Haha, thanks! I don't know what it was about him when I first met him. He was just staring at me from across the holding pins and I just felt... drawn to him. He was stubborn-headed and about as wild as could be.
All it took was a couple of visits and he was hooked on me, just as I was hooked on him. :]

CountryBluebird my first horse I had ever ridden was also an Unbroke Mustang, i'm very glad you have a trainer! Because I knew nothing of horses. And didn't know how to ride and didn't have a trainer I did wrong by my horse but now we are fixing the kinks! I've had my girl for 3 years. And she is wonderful! Kids can ride her. She is just fabulous. My girl also does't have a freezebrand as she was born in captivity. (her monther was wild caught pregnant) I hope to see more pictures of thor! And I do love his name! He's just gorgeous!

LOL, I don't know what it is about 'stangs with those big personalities like that. They can certainly steal your heart quickly...mine did anyway .
