I would think Golda's "flipping out" would be from her lack of knowledge and training. She hasn't had enough experience about the world around her as a riding horse.

1/8 of anything is hardly enough to blame for behavior issues. That is all in the handling of the horse. Blaming a teensy portion of his being on the misunderstanding of a breed is a bit of a stretch. Most saddlebreds I have known are far from the wild and crazy that people think.

Heck, I have known some FLIGHTY quarter horses. Every horse is different.

I figured it was just her personality. I just have never worked with anything Saddlebred or crossed with Saddlebred (would love to try a NSH!). With some more training Golda should come around and be a good riding horse.

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

Gypsie & Dakota

I have two gaited horses. Gypsie and Dakota are both Tennessee Walkers.

Gypsie will be 19 years old on April 18th. She's 15-1 hands tall and is still going strong, even though she's a little older. She's my main trail-riding horse and is perfect to take when riding in a large group.

^ This is from last summer.

^ This is the most recent picture I have uploaded of her, taken in January.

^ Taken last summer

^ She's such a good girl... This was taken a few years ago. The girls in the picture are my cousins. Whitney is the one sitting under my mare, Autumn is the one standing, and Lexi is in the saddle.

^ Taken about two years ago

^ Taken about two or three years ago. She loves to jump and has such a pretty form!

^ Taken last summer.


Dakota will be 7 years old on the 23rd of March. He's about 15-3 hands tall and I hope to turn him into a trail and obstacle challenge/competition horse in the near future. Right now, he's just a trail horse and I prefer to ride him by himself, because he has major attitude issues when riding in a group.

^ As a two-day-old foalie. He decided to take a nap in the front yard and my dog Toby Jo (RIP 2010) decided to lay down with him.

^ Taken about three years ago. he was in the middle of a rather pathetic roll...

^ Taken a year or two ago. He was extremely upset because there was an unfamiliar horse in the other side of the Lot.

^ Rolling in the dead grass last February. He's such a dork.

^ Taken last year before he ripped half of his beautiful mane out (I had to pull his mane extremely short to make it look right...)

^ Taken last year after I had tp pull his mane...

^ The most recent picture I have uploaded on Dakota, modeling his new hunter-green bridle and bit.

I use to be the biggest Anti- gaited horse person. Now, I LOVE Tennessee Walkers. There is nothing better in this world, IMO. ;) I have a TWH/QH mare, her 3/4ths TWH/QH son, and my full blood TWH filly.

This is Farrah, HM Lit By Moon Light, my 4 y/o, 15hh cremello TWH filly. She is an excellent horse. She has a great mind, is hard working and full of try. She's one of my trail horses, and soon to be my show horse (once she has more saddle time).

^ Before we left for her 3rd solo ride.

This is Flicka, my 13 y/o, 14.2hh TWH/QH mare. She is a Doc Bar/Peppy San Badger granddaughter on her sires side, and Midnight Mack K bred on her dams side. She is my main trail horse, but has been on an extended rest period due to a back injury she sustained whilst preggo with her colt (the ones in the next pics).

^ Please ignore her -_- face. lol.

And this is Ninja, HM Mad Ninja Skillz. He's Flicka's 3 y/o gelding son, so 3/4ths TWH/QH. He is only 14.1 at the moment. I expect him to be an excellent riding horse, like his sire and dam. He is everything I expected to get when I bred his mother, and he has a superb mind and a gentle nature. He is brave and querky, bold and exceadingly intelligent. Even though he is only part, he embodies the way a full blood Walking Horse should behave.

^Halter was on for photos, not left on.

^I know.. bare feet is a no no. It was an impromtue photo shoot, and my mother want prepared. lol.
