I have an Arabian gelding. He can be rather -ahem- interesting
My heart horse was also an Arabian, and although always alert and more 'on' than most horses, he was extremely sane and a joy to ride. Casper isn't a whole lot like him, unfortunately......
I now have a retired racing TB. Some people have asked if I have a death wish, but JJ really is a very lazy, mellow, easy ride. There's a reason he washed out at the racetrack.
