My new guy!!
 
Hey guys! Had to share some pictures of my new horse! I will be leasing him for the next year. He has been shown in western pleasure and gaming but didn't do that well at it so I have decided to turn him into a dressage horse, I think he will do okay for lower levels, I myself have never really done that much dressage so we can learn together. He starts his dressage training at Home Page Next week and I am super excited to see how he does! I have been getting riding lessons there and they are great and my trainer really likes Walter a lot. He is about 15.2, and is an appendix we think but not all that sure, he does have some belly spots so his owner will be getting him registered with Pinto.

Here are a few pictures!

They had him trace clipped for the winter and because it's been so nice here I decided to full body clip him but he got sun bleached where he was clipped before so now he has a funny looking stripe on his butt. :-)

Before he was fully clipped.

Full body done, I had originally planed to leave the hair on his head but once I saw how funny her looked I knew I had to clip his head as well. :-)

Full arabian? Where did you get that from? He's definitely not an Arabian, lol! No arab at all. Appendix would be QH and TB.

Haha! It's okay! I wish he was part Arabian, I love Arabians! I have been looking for a nice Arabian to buy but they are all out of my price range so that's why I decided to lease him and save up more for a nice horse to buy later.

Good idea Twilight....although they can be expensive if you want a nice one..they are so very worth it..they will love and protect you til the day they die...

Yea I have about $2,500 saved up but haven't been able to find one, so i'm thinking I'll need more like $5,000. I thought about just buying a foal and putting it into training but training here is about $900 a month, so I don't think it would really save me any money by buying a horse with no training and having it trained.

I'm happy with just leasing this horse for now.
