- 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.

Posted On: 09-25-2014, 08:43 PMQuick update: there's nothing exciting to say really. I'm trying. I feel like I went back to our first lunging sessions. And they weren't particularly successful. But I am beginning to be in the...Liked On: 10-15-2014, 07:33 PM

Posted On: 09-30-2014, 10:16 PMI just wanted to add, a horse is far less likely to balk if you're nice and forward. Walk forward, think forward, don't just meander, march!Liked On: 09-30-2014, 04:37 PM
