I got him when he was 17 he was my first horse, and he was a total headcase, he had been through so many owners and taught so many things that he didnt know which way was up anymore. He was grumpy and smart but after bonding with him and working with him daily he turned into the great horse that I knew was in there. He got to the point where I could get on him bareback with a halter and jump a course. Hes 24 now and retired but hes the best.
I have been riding Liberty for the past 12 years, he was my lesson horse long before I owned him. He got hurt about 6 years ago and I took him to keep him from being sent to auction, I nursed him back to health and we competed for a couple years in 2'6-2'9 hunters before his old injury flared up again and restricted him to jumping no higher then 18" but he was always dead broke and amazing.
I just got her 2 months ago, shes 4 years old, she leads, xties, loads in a trailer, etc. and is green broke. She walks and trots under saddle, still has some turning issues and will once in awhile get "stuck" and refuse to go anywhere. But shes coming along nicely shes the first horse im starting and its a thrill
