So I got a new horse!
Information? Shes a 13 year old quarter horse mare, been there done that. 14.3 1/2 hh and is for beginners up.
She arrived two days ago and they said to give her the morning to settle in and could ride her whenever. She got on well with Muss, gave a few threatning kicks but never really connected with her. shes still a bit hard to catch and ive ridden her twice, once with a saddle and yesterday after work bareback. shes honestly the calmest horse ever ive already gotten my confidence back towards being able to rug her with the back clips of the rug. Muss used to kick outta me to the point i dont unrug him unless i have to and so everytime i need to rug or unrug this girl she is perfect she doesnt move. She did have a little spook yesterday when i leading her back to her paddock and jumped back and crushed my foot so its pretty blue today. Not sure what she spooked at but as soon as she jumped back and i got her off my foot she was calm again.
Anyway when I went to view her when she was for sale i had two different horse experienced peple come with me different times and they both said she was perfect for me. We got her vet checked it came black clear and i went out there to see her get on the float as they agreed to bring her to my paddock since i had no float and they gave me the leadrope told me to put her on i did and she walked on right behimd me calmly. I was so suprised it was so easy but then again shes been on floats so many times shes used to it.
She has currently being ridden by a 10 year old for the last 3 years. Been a broodmare, I met her 2 year old daughter out there, such a pretty thing. But anyways shes so easy to walk and trot.
I lunged her out at the other persons place and she actually did it! she didnt do any of the crap muss always does.
I rode her bareback yesterday which was really scary but i was pretty confident after plodding her for half an hour :)
Shes done everything pony club, jumping, trail riding, campdrafting, led showing, hack everything. Shes very steady shes never tried to race into a trot or try and go to fast. Her only downside is shes a bit girthy but all she does is pin her ears back, nothing else. My friend rode her and tested her to try and see if there was any crap and said she tried everything to annoy her or upset her and she said nothing upset her.
So heres some pictures from first day home:
