    This is Showdown. I started taking lessons on him when I was 12 (nearly 10 years ago). We have quite the story together, which I won't get into right now. He is 26 years old, 14.3 and was 2nd in the world reining horse back in his day (till he had a leg injury). I leased him for three years, until I got my mare a month ago. My trainer/coach is his owner.

    Here's some other pictures that I love of some of the other horses where Showdown is boarded:

    Nice horse, Kelly.

    I know this isn't a critique but I need to mention that your stirrups are not adjusted properly. The fenders should only be 1 or 2 inches off the stirrup. To get more length, you pull the fenders down - not lengthen the leathers. The way you have it is very improper as well as dangerous.

    Thanks for being concerned! I did notice this as well, and I'm not quite sure the reasoning behind this (I forgot why exactly they were like that, I'm pretty sure we had a reason for it). The saddle placement also looks a little off & I probably fixed it before I rode. I actually think I was just taking pictures that day. But thank you again for noticing!
