This is my youngest daughter's horse (she adores my dd by the way! Sooo cute!) Any input on what you think her breeding may be? She is gaited, but definitely not full TWH or anything. I was told she used to pull a cart.

EMStnnwalker just let me know in advance and kctop , her husband and I can arrange a time.
They are truly wonderful people and you need to get to know them.
Your daughters mare looks like a Paso to me.
Linsaymichelle welcome to the thread and glad you finally dropped in to say hello.
This is the friendliest most drama free thread on this forum.
We don't judge the flowers in the photos you post nor do we critique the horses in the back ground so just post and enjoy the group.
We even have our own facebook group.
There are plenty of us in the DFW area and hopefully we can all meet each other again real soon.
By the way I am the studious fatherly reserved one. Shalom

Ok will do db :) Hmmm Paso never occured to me, but she does bear a resemblance to them. Thanks for the input.

Welcome Linsay!

EMS, that took some soul searching to decide that about your daughter....that is great that you are thinking of her confidence and enjoyment now - I often wonder if my oldest would have been more into horses if I had backed off and just let her do what she wanted and yes, her pony would have probably lost all of the training I put into him and I couldn't bare to let him lose it all, but maybe she would have loved it more if I decided to just let her figure it out - maybe not - who knows. She's a great little rider when she wants to show off, but she doesn't seek out horses. I'm going to do things a little different with this younger one - thank goodness my pony still has his training so it worked out for my youngest, but I'm going to do things a little different than with the older one. Wish we had a big crystal ball so that we could try out different scenarios and see which ones are successful - but then that would be too easy

ClippityClop, I think you are being wise.

I make my daughter's coach/trainer crazy because I let Kitten enjoy her horse. Yes, we show English (on the flat currently), but Kitten also loves play days (barrels and poles), cow sorting, and trail riding. Our trainer has been working on slowing down their canter...but when Kitten runs barrels, she and Acey tear around like her tail is on fire. I told the trainer that while I respect her, I don't want to end up with a 1,000 pasture puff because we burn Kitten out with show riding only. Horses should be fun...and a good horse can do a little bit of everything.

I know two little girls whose parents purchased finished show horses. The girls are only allowed to ride one day a week and their trainer must be present. (To avoid messing up the horses' training). At shows, their grooms do the warm up; the girls only ride in the show ring. After 2 years you can tell the girls are losing their passion for horses. It's really sad.
