  2. Horse Breeds
    I have a 10 year old Standardbred gelding I've had for four years. He's been mainly a trail horse with some ring work in English saddle due to me not having an arena (until recently). Now that I do, and the weather is nice again, he seems to have decided he doesn't want to do anything. He's...
