Don' t take my word for it, the only way you will find out is if you try. Good luck! :)

Yeah I know, I didn't think about that. I know I'm not too big for him to manage at all, he was bred to be a cow horse, small yet mighty lol (you should see his butt!). I don't think we look THAT bad though because he has a normal horse sized body with short legs. You'd never believe I'm 5'6 and he's barely 14hh lol but I'm just going to take him to local non a-rated shows and everyone out here just has stock type horses so they won't take too much off I think.

I found it!!! This was Jack when I got him this spring. Yes, he was free, and I know why. He has come A LONG way though and I'm proud. This is when I first started breaking him, only 5 months before the videos. He would panic and was so mean. I personally think his last owner abused him. Well I'm happy he came to us either way :)

I know! I couldn't believe it. I have the video on my phone but I couldn't get it to upload. Not sure how I stayed on that one! We were being so gentle with him, nice petting and calm voices, but he just freaked out! Poor guy, he's a complete different horse now.

You're just lucky he didn't flip back on you. But yes I'd definitely say he's come a long way since then!

My guy was a rearer when I first got him too. He used to panic and go straight up. Luckily he's pretty balanced... and he's now had enough time to learn how to have a tantrum in a more appropriate/safe manner. Haha!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
