- He is not mine. he belongs to a friend, but for a year or so, I got to ride him regualarly, and even show him in dressage. we mostly rode him western.
he was a very nice horse. full Appy, 16.1 hh, but actually had pretty rough gaits,and often tripped. but his temperment was wonderful. he lives with her now, likely enjoying a wonderlife, as she takes the best care of her animals.
- this is his website. He is a cowboy pastor.
