My TB thinks he's a QH...

Disclaimer: This post is mostly for amusement. It should not be taken too seriously.

Reno is a 4 year old OTTB gelding. He has only ever been ridden in Thoroughbred races (five starts) and has been started under saddle as a Dressage prospect. Last Saturday we had a photoshoot at the farm. We did conformation shots of all the horses and action shots of whoever would run around. I'm still waiting on excited. When it was Reno's turn to be put out in the field and run around like his little self...he RAN. First he did a little buck and started galloping around. Then he started running towards me and the photographer by the gate. When he got close he did a sliding stop (it looked pretty legit from what I could tell, considering I had been watching Reining videos the night before).'re a Thoroughbred...but that was awesome XD

I shall be posting pictures once I get them...oh I hope we got that shot...

There ARE horses out there with severe identity crisis.....I've known a Haflinger gelding who would cut cows in pasture

My draft cross likes to pretend he's an arab. He even tries to flag his tail like an arab. It doesn't work, but he tries.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

haha, sometimes my horse thinks he's a stallion. We'll be at a show, and he'll see a mare and start getting all stud-like. People actually went to the show booth to report "a minor riding a stallion" (it is illegal to show a stallion if you're under 19, at least where I show). He was gelded at a normal age, so that doesn't have anything to do with it. He's just weird!

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.

Haha, how cute!
Truth be told, my boy thinks he is just a goofy yellow lab in a horse costume.

Ah yes! Casey wants to be a reiner as well- shes a Pintabian TB cross. (little bit of a blurry picture)

I watched my TB doing a sliding stop in the field the other day, I was horrified LOL. I'd almost rather see him jump the fence (I like him to be a jumper) than the thought that I might have to carry those 100lbs saddles to ride him.
