    Thanks Roaddy, I'll be back, likely after this 2nd lesson. Appreciate the response. (weird thing is, just "happening" on PBS horse programs the last few late night, Lippizaner, whom I fell in love with early childhood, & one [a Pluto descendant] my 1st school horse [he died from a freak fly infection, but he taught me alot, more than my instructor did]. Horses are weird, the passion shows up. Thanks again; I'll try to not be so wordy in future.

    Welcome TJ. We all have our baggage here. Some good, some bad. But we still have to get through the days and it's nice to have something we care about.After a bad fall, it is hard to climb aboard again, but, if we don't we can lose a piece of ourselves. So, hats off to you for trying again.

    Cacowgirl: I did lose my self-piece,trying to get it back. I love the encouragement. & Roaddy LOL, yes you all are beyond me..I'm just trying to mount a sweet prison-trained mustang from the ground (as he was trained) then learn again to walk. One step at a time. You'all are a big help right now. My school horse is 5 y/o, grulla, tatoo'd for genuine mustang,very sweet 15 hand genuine mustang.

    Hi all! Looks to be another busy day on this thread!

    Nvr2many, WOW! What beautiful pictures!!!! They brought tears to my eyes. Looks like you had a wonderful adventure!😃

    Hunter, this must be the weekend for clinics! This is the weekend for mine as well. It's on natural horsemanship. ( ya know, the clinic where once the lady heard I was taking it, pulled the horse deal out from under me....). Meanwhile, my rainn's previous owner offered me use of one of her horses to use in the clinic!!! She's a bit green, so we should BOTH learn a thing or two!!! ( that's why im not taking rainn, she's a bit too trained). I am a bit nervous tho, as I don't know this horse real well....but thank goodness I have the option to do total ground work if I want!!! We will play the whole weekend by ear!! 😋

    Speaking of Rainn, we rode again tonight. Not too far, as I took my dog, and she was bothered by the heat again. I just have to say, Rainn is something else. We had a semi, two Amish buggies, and some speed demons pass us on the rode.....she didn't flinch! AMAZING!!! 😃 I don't think we'll ever find another like her!

    Does this sound weird??? I was thinking the next time I go to look at a horse, I would take my dog (assuming where we go,doesn't have any running around)......and here is why I am considering it......let me back track 20 years guy I dated and was engaged to, my one horse HATED!!!! I soon found out that he was a real control freak jerk....I think my horse knew that, they have a sense.......and hence why she would throw him etc.....souls have gotten rid of the guy sooner!!!! Lol

    Fast forward to dog is a town dog and up until these two horses, she had never been around them. When Maggie is around Rainn, she is very comfortable, almost too much so where she walks right under without a with my PRIMA Dona, that's another story! Maggie's ears pin to her head, she whines, shows a lot of fear, and is very worried when I work with her....I think Maggie knows this horse is a bit off....dogs have that sense too.....

    So....I'm thinking if I could get a read from the dog when around a potential horse, that may help in the choosing....not totally of course, but something to consider????? Am I totally off my rocker???? 😱😲😜

    Anyway.....welcome TJ! Where's Sereno?

    Have a good night everyone! Happy trails! 🐴

    Hey nicker we are doing a clinic like yours in July should be fun. I think you are spot on with taking your dig with you. They have a sense we don't and it is something I take seriously. B O has a jack russel that loves everyone except certain people. It hasn't been very many but he is always spot on
