Talking First time getting his hooves done

So I just wanted to brag a little. Gambit got his hooves trimmed for the first time since I bought him. He was absolutely perfect. It was his first time meeting the farrier but he didn't mind, he let her pick his hooves up and start working. The whole process only took like twenty minutes and afterword she complimented me on how well behaved he was.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Good for him! That is unusual, if he hasn't had much farrier work done in the past. How old?

He knows when you're happy; He knows when you're comfortable; He knows when you're confident; And he always knows when you have carrots.

he is nine but the people we got him from hadn't done much of anything with him for the past three years, he was just sitting in the pasture.

Horses like that are so nice. Our little Mustang is a very, VERY calm little horse, and he often gets more compliments than our flashy WB cross and athletic TB! :)
