My trainer knew of him, so we went down and picked him up, took him back to her place, and I rode him. He is not an arena horse, that's for sure, he is a ranch horse. I reckon he is right around 15.2hh and built like a brick **** house, he was up for sale because he is just to slow for ranching.refined at all
Get back to her place throw the saddle on and I ride him in the arena, walk trot and lope, and a number of things are obvious, he is heavy on the hands, needs a lot of effort to make him go, he has also never been softened or refined at all. I take him up the drive way, up and down the lane, in and out of the ditches, and all is good. Then we walk back down to the yard and I am sat on him next to a swinging chair, under a tree, just chatting, and the kids are dressing the dog in tablecloths and flags etc, until the dog is covered from nose to tail in bright color cloth. The dog got fed up, shot across the lawn and under the boys feet legs. With that the other dog saw this apparition he flew at it and a short fight took place, right next to new guy, who didn't bat an eyelid.
So he is home here for a couple of days trial, see how we get on, if he is staying he HAS to get a name, OT is not a name, his registered name isn't much better Rudy Mclean, so if he stays he will need a name upgrade.
