I deserve an award. I read all the pages. All 30.
I loveee geldings. They are my choice of gender. The first lesson horse I rode about 6 months ago, was a gelding. He was part clydesdale and part tb. He had hard sides, and man DID he kill my legs for someone who hasn't ridden in 8 years.
Now I'm riding a mare, she's in her 20's. She could give anyone a run for her money. She's a very tough mare, not everyone wants to handle her. I love the horse world, every horse is different with their own quirks and personalities. And they all have something different to offer to teach.
