I'm sorry to hear that. What is the move that he makes, Golden?

One jump forward, like a big canter depart step, head up, one more jump forward head down, pulls you forward onto his neck, then drops his shoulder.

I am not sure what he will be like mounting from the ground.

I have no idea if he would do the same in a western saddle, rather than the English.

I do know that the next person who tries has to have the skill to stick it, because IF he does it again, and IF he dumps a 3rd person, he will have that move sorted.

Well, crap - that's all I've got to say. Remember that cowboy who helped you load him that time? I wonder if he makes house calls?

Closing chapter in the Ben story, he just left for his new home, and I'm crying my fool eyes out. Just because a relationship is wrong, doesn't stop it hurting when it is over.

So very bittersweet isn't it? Are you willing to share the circumstances?

Ben has set off on the first step of the journey, he wont get to his final destination until the spring, as he is heading for the Yukon.

He will overwinter in Sask, and then go up next year and be restarted, he will be used as a western trail horse, the thing he was really happy doing at the trainers.
