Jumping in the deap end. Just bought our first Horse

a beautiful 8 year old gelding Paint.
He will be used as a show horse and is trained in Western, English and showmanship. My daughters both show but until now had to borrow.

They are both on cloud 9 right now. We hope to spend the next 6 months getting comfortable with him and be ready for the next summer show season!

First ride..

Congrats!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks,
We board about 5 miles from home. The horse came with a Showman western saddle, seen in the first pic, also a very nice English saddle, as well as all the halters, reins etc....

Yes, that's nice to get the things the horse is used to. I've had horses for 40+ years, so can usually find something that fits the horses I'm interested in.
