Jaxxon all ‘decked out’ (English style)

My best friend and another friend of ours came out a few days ago and we played around with my three year old Quarterhorse gelding, Jaxxon.

I’ve ridden him English once before… last year… and he’s mainly been ridden bareback and with a halter… so we ‘decked him out’ in my English saddle and a bridle that my friend brought over that I’m planning on buying/hoping to buy… and rode for a while.

My best friend took pics of me and our other friend riding… she didn’t ride… but both our other friend and I rode at a w/t/c… Jax also responded to the bit I put on him much better than he did a regular snaffle.



Look at that reach!

Looks awesome. Great piccies


You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

Thanks. Glad you guys like the pics.

And yes, we were on the road. We didn't ride him for that long, though.

pretty horse. Looks good in english tack

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

Thanks! I'm glad you like.

I haven't posted pics of Jax in a while... I figured that I should give you guys a 'dose' of the Jaxinator...

When I was a youngerster, we would gallop full bore on the blacktop at night to watch the sparks from the horses shoes. Crazy kids
