• Horses: 1
Rider (this is you)...
Age/Age Group: 60's

Gender: M

Height: 5'8

Favorite...
Breed: Grade

Color: Always liked appaloosas, but you cant ride color, never owned or ridden one. Soundness and temperament trump all. Current horse is a roan.

Size: 13hh - 15hh

Riding Temperature: I live in the tropics. I have a choice of hot or hotter.

Saddle: I've always had the philosophy of ride the horse, not the saddle. I've ridden in every type I could try. I grew fond of McClellans while stationed with the cavalry. Current favorite is a reconditioned antique Hope western A fork saddle.

Would you like to/have you compete/competed: Competed (unsuccessfully) on bareback broncs in the '70s & early '80s. Never won anything, but learned a lot about how horses move when they misbehave, & how to stay balanced.

Would you like to/have you be in a show/been in a show: Showed western pleasure on the 4-H and open show circuit in the early '70s. Haven't even seen a horse show since '74.

If your horse could have any hairstyle, what would it be: Easy to manage.

Would you want a matching hairstyle for yourself: I keep a buzz cut. I'm severely lacking in the forelock department.

Fantasy tack time! If you could have the perfect tack, what would it look like: I kinda like my Hope saddle.

Itís hot out! Ugh! What do you do with your horse in the heat: Work in the mornings or evenings, when it is not as hot.

Itís cold out! Eek! What do you do with your horse in the cold: Contemplate the end of life as we know it. Seriously, last January, during an unusually long rainy season, it got down to 10c. Some folks hereabouts actually thought the world was coming to an end.

Favorite treat to give your horse: Rock salt. My horse doesn't like treats. I've tried apples and watermelon. No go. Even tried rubbing salt on them. No go. Years go, I had a BLM mustang that could be a bit hard to catch. Fortunately, she was a sucker for green apples.

Would you rather...
Board your horse in someoneís barn or have your horse in your own house/barn: My place.

Jump in a Western saddle or ride Western in an English saddle: See comment above about saddles.

Ride an extremely fast horse or extremely slow: I don't like extremes. I prefer one to walk along at a natural pace, and move out smartly when asked.

Grow your own carrots to feed your horse or buy carrots from the store: All my neighbors are farmers. I'll buy from them.
