Tiny, yeah, the trainer is amazing. She's been riding most of her life and is sooooo good at teaching. I love watching her give lessons to the little kids because she explains things so they can understand it and know why they're doing what she's telling them to. And yeah, Aires is VERY unique! He's one of those horses that no matter what discipline I do with him, he going to draw attention, regardless of whether we win or not. I just wish he'd grow into that monster head already! I'm having to have a custom rope halter made for him because the one he has is almost too small.
csimkunas6, he's easy to love. lol My friend that trailered in to ride with us (with the 15.1hh quarab) was amazed by him. Out of all the horses that were going on the trail ride with us, he was the only one that wasn't nervous from the thunder and lightning (which was intense) and that didn't spook at all. He even hand-trotted with me across the road on the way back and slowed when I did (the trainer was like "Well, he should be good on the ground...that's all you could do with him for two months was groundwork!").
MHF, he's already a tank! lol We went on a little "trail" ride around the block the other day and there was this hill we had to climb that was about 100 feet long, but fairly steep. The other two horses (a saddlebred that belongs to one of the boarders and my friend's arab mare) almost had to trot up the hill to get to the top. Aires just plowed up it at a walk and beat both of them to the top. I've honestly never ridden a horse with that much raw power that you could feel. He started up the hill at a kind of lazy walk then realized that that wasn't going to cut it, so he turned on the power.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
