It is amazing how many people Do Not Read or Cannot Read, happens more and more for some reason, maybe it is something in the water

I think you specified all the points about your Horse

Oh-she started on how she didn't want a horse she had to retrain!

Keep in mind she lives about 2 miles from the track and could probably get an OTTB who would fit her needs just fine, for next to nothing....but safe? Maybe not so much. You get what you pay for.

oh the horse selling industry...


On the other hand, your horse sounds like a saint.

You know-he was SO good. Stood there patiently ground tied through all the tack changes-sort of looking at me like "I thought when the saddle came off I was done?"

And we had a wonderful trail ride after. I am thinking he quite possibly can pack around my grandson in a couple of years.

All I can say is that horse is worth his weight in gold.

I don't get people who don't read ads. I mean I always obsess over them before going to see a horse. Sit there for hours wondering what every word in the reply email could possibly mean...okay I am a bit obsessive. But still...

I understand in a weird way about the contact thing though. I don't hang off a horse's mouth, never have had a bad comment about my hands BUT I don't like riding with a contact. On a trail and at a walk - totally fine, but I like contact work. I mean I work sometimes with no contact, but I like couldn't adjust to a horse I couldn't ride without a contact. Your horse sounds pretty great though.
