- Wow, Ginger looks great! Your skills are at a much higher level than mine. I'm just a backyard rider. I feel lucky that I can provide a happy place for my horses and that when I am not working, I get to ride and train.
We live in Southern Oregon, a days drive North from you.
Your place looks amazing! I can see the ocean and it looks like you ride on the hills above the beach. I see big trees around your round pen. Where are you, Half Moon Bay? Can you ride out from your place to the hills you were on with Ginger?
Pretty cool, Ian.
- Thanks for asking. :) She's a 10 year-old Thoroughbred/Belgian cross that my parents raised and gave to me a few years ago. Her breeding is an interesting combination as her sire was a really solid, quiet carriage horse and her dam was off the track, so some days I'm riding a Belgian and other days a racehorse! I really enjoy her though and have learned a lot having her in my life.
Here's a highlight I made awhile back. Please excuse our atrocious spinning, I know we weren't in great form on that one lol. :P
What part of Oregon you guys from? Some beautiful country up there.
