Pictures of Harley!

I'm supposed to be on a flight from Montreal to Munich right now (and then on to Spain), but everything has been delayed so what am I going to do but post photos of our dear Harley! Spain will just have to wait a day.

I think this still belongs in the "New to Horses" forum since Harley has only been with us for a month and he's my first horse since I was a teenager (I won't say how long ago that is!). Harley is a 14 yr old Arabian gelding who is trained for dressage and will be doing a bit of jumping with my daughter.

Yesterday, I learned to lunge him with side reins so that was cool. My daughter does most of the riding and while he is a bit spirited at the canter, everything is going well overall. He has a sweet, eager to please personality and is very lovable. He even let us put a unicorn horn on him for Halloween! We sure do love our Harley and cannot imagine a better horse for my daughter :)

Thanks all! Yes Foxhunter, he always seems to be paying attention to her. Not quite a babysitter horse because he really wants to canter and forgets that it's a big too much for her sometimes, but he sure means well and is trying hard to interpret her cues. She just needs to hone those skills a little more so he can understand her better. But I see the communication happening between them and see improvements every time she rides him. And perhaps most importantly, she adores him and so is highly motivated to become a better rider.
