I spoke with her, and we are planning on going next week Saturday to try him out. I'm also not a fan of the parked out stance, but it does make it easier to mount.
Dead broke, confidence builders are not exactly glutting the market. It would be easier to find a quarter horse, but I'm used to gaited and so many people end up looking for one as they age, that since I'm already aged (like a great cheese or a fine wine...LOL) switching to WTC at this point seems a little pointless. So, I'm looking for dead broke, quiet GAITED horses...... Something to bridge the gap between now and the nursing home! LOLOL
ETA: Where we ride there is ALWAYS a downed tree or stump...or I've been known to put them in a ditch and mount from the bank. I routinely use the tailgate of the truck for mounting. People look at me a little oddly, but when you're a white haired old lady, you can generally get away with anything. <grin> If push comes to shove, DH has been known to hoist my rear....
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
