Talking Aaspen

So, I decided to make a new thread since I don't need help with the whole leasing aspect anymore :]

All I have right now are pics of Aaspen and his owner, but I'll snap some myself next time I go out to the barn. Aaspen is a 16 year old HanoverianxThoroughbred. The owner bred him herself. She did all three phases sidesaddle at this event and placed 3rd. I believe they were doing training level. I'm kinda seriously in love with this horse! Anyway, let me know what you think :]









And one just cause I think it's super cute.
From left to right: Aaspen, his owner's husband, Hershey the donkey, his owners youngest prospect Lady, the owner, a horse who is not longer there, and a dog who is no longer there.

Haha, I do too! I think it's about four years old, but it's adorable. Also, I am soooo in love with her barn. I'll have to see if it's alright with her and snap some pictures to show you guys. It's gorgeous and she keeps it incredibly clean and tidy. I was so impressed when I got over there today. Also, thanks! I'm super excited in case you didn't notice xD

Haha, yes. Yes she is :] I'm hoping she'll be willing to teach me... I've always thought it would be cool to learn it!

Not to come across rude, but is the owner aware that you to post her pics for critique here? The horse is lovely, BTW.

That's not rude at all. She's aware. I'm not asking for a critique of her, by the way. Just of Aaspen. I'm interested in everyone's opinions of him!

Oh, OK. We had problems in past when people posted without permission, so just was checking. :)

I think it's a great horse. You are very lucky to get him on lease.
