Thank you guys for the support
<3 We just got back. We actually went to see two horses before Remington (the white gelding), and liked what we saw but it just was not it. After Remington, we saw three more. Now that we're home and chilling with some sodas, we both agree that Remington (who is right here actually Big Walking Horse!
and Misty, a black quarter horse) were just about perfect!
Gosh, I could gush for hours about Remington mostly though. He was my FAVORITE. He was definitely tall (NOT KIDDING! I barely got on, but he was such a gentle giant!) but kind. He's a Tennessee Walking Horse, so his gait kind of threw me off at first. I actually thought I wouldn't like him when we first got there!! He's a bit underweight, but that is because he's a rescue they just got. The place where we went/he is, is a trail riding place (with a side of weddings, parties, etc. It was very nice.) and he has that fast pace, even at a walk, so that's another reason they couldn't keep him. Because you know, little kids and people who just want a...dead-broke horse to ride, I suppose, are daunted. It's such a pity because I adored him. So calm and level with us. Interested, bright eyes, ears pricked. Kat, the friend I brought, loved him. She wanted to take him home right there! x) I had to remind her (reluctantly) that we had others to see and we have to be careful of impulse. This would have been bad, but the people there agreed, haha! They were so nice and treated us like family. I wanted to just get a lodge there (yes, they have that too!) and stay with them forever. They joked with us and everything. Remington was a dream to be on as well. I wasn't sure if I could test him out, so Kate did and she definitely didn't want to get out of the saddle. It was funny :P She cantered him around a bit, and his tail and mane...ah. Just amazing. He was the main that stuck out, aside from Misty. Misty also was perfect but she was short, made for roping cattle and such :( I was disappointed; we both liked her, but my mother had to tell us to be careful since we might outgrow her (we're both about the same, 5 feet haha shorties!) I would definitely be bummed if we got her, enjoyed her, and then grew out of her. Whatever the case, we're still keeping her in mind.
