Here was my experimental horse Carla.
This was when I first started riding her in nothing but a halter and leadrope. Carla was a 2 yr old quarter horse. (not me in the pic)
This when I upgraded to a saddle. (I was 15 yrs old, Carla was 2) I notice now it seems like she's got more of a thoroughbred build to me than quarterhorse? Or am I seeing things?
This was Carla and I 5 yrs later when I was 19.
