Thanks everyone! I absolutely love this horse with all my heart! He's my best friend and my partner in crime!

The bits I use - well, I have 3 bridles.

1 is his dressage bridle with his KK Ultra Loose Ring French Link.
1 is his CC Bridle, which is a Full Cheek French Link
1 is his Hacking/Schooling/Jumping bridle with his Myler Level 1 Comfort Snaffle

I love his facial markings - very unique eh!! Very distinctive.

He is a love bug! Even though he is 16 - he acts 5. You should see him on Fox Hunts! I have a Prix Saint George Dressage Horse! ROFL! We do Piaffe's perfectly, tempi changes, we do airs above the ground - ROFL.

I love this horse! He teaches me something new everytime I am in the saddle!

I wish I had someone who could take pictures of Boo and I, like Pinto Pony has - lucky girl!

Here he is showing off a browband that he got as a gift from a friend back in Canada. I had to take pictures of him in it, to show it off to my friend - he's very thankful :)

What an awesome story. A million kudos to his previous owner! Not all sellers will go out of their way to make sure their horse gets the perfect home. He's gorgeous, too. Love his stripe.

He is beautiful!
What a great owner, trying to find the perfect home for a pricey horse, and giving it away for free.
These days, not many would do that...
I love his face. white the blaze and the kinda star thing in the's so cute!!

I love those pictures with the little dog racing along side the horse! What is that, a jack russell?

Yes, Kudos to the previous owner. Shows me she is a TRUE horse lover!

And he is really a handsome boy. His face markings kinda look like someone dripped white paint on him - very distintive. And I especially like the pictures of you jumping with the dog running along side, too cute!

Congrats to you, you guys do look like a pair.

Horses are God's apology for men.

Thank you everyone! I was very blessed the day his previous owner gave him to me.

He has taught me so much since we've been together, and I am thankful for everyday I have with him!

I love the pictures with my little dog running beside us - she wil actually do some jumps as well. She LOVES to go on long trail rides and hacks - whenever she see's the barn, she gets all hyper.

She is a Rat Terrier - she was a rescue. Her name is Dixie and she is about 2 years old now.
