My life, with my love <3 (Pic heavy)

To write our whole story would literally take 100's of pages, so I will keep it as simple, and as short as possible.

We rescued him in the winter of 2010 from a neglectful life, with having had moved to a new owner about once or twice a year. He was my first horse. I had never taken lessons or, to my sorrow, had anything to do with horses till we got him, them he became my life.

He was untrusting, unfaithful, mean, he bucked, and reared, bit and kicked, threw his head, had never been jumped, and had never rode without a saddle. He was the perfect definition for "green broke"

I took him under my care and soon, I realized how loyal and trusting he had become. He now NEVER rears, bucks, bites, throws his head, be's mean, kicks, and now, I can even jump him bareback. I can canter him bareback, without the fear of being thrown off.

His loyalty also shines through, in every way. And now I realize that he is THE sweetest horse I could ever dream of.

As I said, I can't write it all down, so you'll just get the beggining of his story.

He's come a long way from when you first got him. It's easy to see all the love and care you've put into him. Keep up the awesome work!

You have done great with him! And you puppy is too cute.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
