sorry about the confusion, I have owned him for 2 yrs now, & I was the one to saddle break him, it was my first horse that I ever saddle broke, he just turned 5 this April past. Don't worry, I'm all about slow training, I don't believe in rushing a horse & I don't like having a horse that is all go no whoa. I got to the training part of that book, & you have to do a lot of exercises with all 3 gaits. I broke Rhiszo, than never rode for a couple of yrs, & making time for it again. I been really busy trying to own my own property. I never want to deal with a stallion either! I know exactly what you mean with the type of horse that you want, my past mare was xactly like that. I hope you can find that horse no problem when you search to buy. I love what your doing, and I think its great that you only like doing the little fun things, nothing too stressful, just fun. Let me know if you need any help buying a horse! I love helping.
Thats good that he is fast. But if he has never raced before, I would start him out slow. Just because I have seen people ruin completely good horses by starting them to fast. Then all the horse has on there mind is go go go and nothing else. hah I really would prefer having a gelding, but the first time I seen my mare, I fell in love with her! hehe and I have never really delt with stallions before, so I would not choose one for me. When I choose my next horse, I hope to just get one that is good at what I love doing, and is not that hot, but still wants to go fast when I want it too. ya know? Yes, me and Candy do local shows, and shows at our barn and what not. I am not big into competing, just having fun and doing what I love!! =) So youre going to buy Rhiszo then?!
I know what you mean about a younger horse, sometimes it is nice, I finally received that book, barrel racing 101, and reading about how to choose a proper horse for the sport. Read that Rhiszo has everything he needs to have fast times, the only thing he doesn't have is a long underline, short head (but he has a straight one) and he might have a long pastern, other than that, the body is great for the sport, he even has the attitude that they was saying about, so I just had to wait a little for the answer. Do you like mares or geldings or stallions? What do you hope to aim for when choosing your next horse? Also, what do you like to event in, just local shows and home arena fun? I should get going for now, but you take care, hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you!! I do want to buy her someday hopefully. I would keep her at the barn she is at now, because i absolutely LOVE everyone that is there. But I am not sure I will, because I do want a horse that is a little younger. ya know!? And i am sad to hear about what happened to your horse. =( I hate people sometimes. seriously!! =(
