    We got my QH to do barrels and he hated it I took him on the trails he didnt put up one fight went through water, over bridges, branchs, up steep hills, and tried to get to sheep very bad and tried to herd them... he was a ranch horse before the people we got him from got him they had him for a few months and we got him, he would run around and had fun.

    I went to look at two others that were there and one had a bad ankle and another had a limp and he was HUGE and I couldnt leave with out him! 5 years later he's still going strong! Gets hypted on the trails still at 14 years!

    I got my mom a horse at an sale, for her and he's pretty good first time out was her first time on him he did everything she asked! Im also training him for other things, barrels, poles, maybe english later on as he's still young.

    When I got my horse I never thought I'd ride him. He was a rescue and literally was going to be shot if no one took him. I figured he would grow out of his murderer stage after I showed him some love and retrained him. He was a complete terror in the ring and spent the entire time literally trying to kill me so I figured I'd take him on a trail that way if he dropped me he could run away instead of being trapped and want me dead. He was amazing on the trail. He was so confident and so relaxed I thought I might have tacked up the wrong horse.

    He's the best horse in the world now and more often than not I'll drop the reins and let him be the guide. I don't think that story helps but I guess it shows that you can't judge a horse by how he rides in the ring. I don't know, he's good for ring work now, all it took was some training.
