I really like him too and you've brought him along phenomenally. I'm another enabler, if you want him and are confident you can continue his training, take him in and give him a good life that he may not have the chance for elsewhere.

Oh my goodness, this is ridiculous. I just got a call from the woman who bred my current lesson horse. She has a gelding that is just sitting right now because she's showing reining with a stud that's getting all of her attention. He's a 9 year old Reiner and she doesn't want to sell him or give him away, but she offered to let me take him and use him for lessons.

I remember praying for a free horse as a child, and now I'm getting them left and right, if you guys have seen my post on Breezy, you know what I'm talking about. I'm going down to look at him on Sunday. I think I have the mustang to the point that an experienced horse person could take him and enjoy him. What a ood problem to have though, haha.

You have done a very good job with this horse. As others have said, if you can afford him, go for it. I would be sure to spend the money for a complete vet check, even though he is free, however. Nothing can end up being as expensive as some "free" horses!!

No, it's going to have to be one or the other. I'm pretty particular on how I care for my horses And I know I couldn't give them both the level of care I would like to. Riding mustang today, he's doing so well. Getting much better with his canter transitions. We did a lot of trot/canter transitions today and he's getting a lot better at going straight into them. He still takes a skilled hand though, and I teach mostly kids to ride. It makes more sense to go with a horse that has more training that I could use for lessons sooner. We'll see though. I haven't even met the other one yet. Anyone in Northern California that wants Mr. Mustang? Haha.

I was able to contact the previous owners today. Apparently he is a Quarter/Morgan cross. They got him as a 2 year old (he's 12/13 now) about a year and a half ago they couldn't take care of him anymore and then my BO took him in, where he sat in pasture.
