Sounds just like my Snickers, and, if Nibbles really is like that, you've got a very interesting, joyful and educational adventure ahead! Also, my experience shows that such horses need lots and lots of intellectual stimulation. They learn quickly and get bored easily if the same lessons are repeated frequently, so you have to be ready to learn to be very open to different approaches and things you can teach Nibbles. And one should never underestimate the intelligence, pride and, if I may say, spirituality of such horses... They are here to teach us more than we are to teach them.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

You're right , Saranda. I already feel a very strong bond with her, and think she's the perfect horse for me now.

I was very lucky to have "The perfect horse" when I was younger. My parents purchased a 3 year old unbroken quarter horse ridgeling for me when I was 11. They only paid $100.00 for him, and he had almost perfect conformation, and a sound mind. I was taking lessons, but learned a lot through trial and error. I rode hunt seat, and only wanted to jump. We learned together, and he took me all the way to open jumpers in the national AHSA circuit. (We rode in working hunters just for warm up, and he was also ranked in that.LOL) All my friends spend thousands trying to get a horse that could jump half as well as my boy. Once in a while, I would throw an western saddle on him and take him in a trail class, and he did great. However, he was ALWAYS a handful, snorted and bucked on the trail, and was very pushy on the ground. All of which I didn't care about in the least at my age then! LOL

Now, 40 years later, I needed a calm, well behaved sweetheart to ride on the trail, and I believe I have found one. I have been doubly blessed by having 2 'perfect' horses that are so much different from each other but perfect for the two different times in my life. They are both my 'heart' horses.
