I hold my hand up and admit I am the worlds worst horse buyer, left to myself I make really bad decisions and buy pretty horses that "I can grow into" or that I can "fix"
Truth is some people, like me have no business in buying such horses, and it wasn't until I actually had a decent trainer, and got her involved that I found the right horse.
The Awesome Mr Gibbs, never advertised, came available by word of mouth, as the best ones often do, some people say he is handsome, but at first I did not think so, but over the last couple of years I have come to think he is incredibly handsome both inside and out. His story is linked on my signature line, here is the day I met him, a pretty uninspiring ride, brought out from a pen, covered in cow poop, but although he was hard work, he felt safe 30th June (6).jpg
We went on to become a great team, he is a great horse Cassie.jpg
You can make a good solid safe horse a lot more responsive by training, but the good thing about Gibbs, I could get it horribly wrong and he would just roll his eyes at me and carry on.
