Quarder horse Palimino!I train horses now and I'm saveing up for one to do big time Barrel raceing on!
That's mine too, lol!My dream horse is super cowy. Athletic as all get out, and fast, but without the downside to that temperament. So, although she would be ready for any bad idea I had, and 100% on board and capable, she would not be nervous or spooky, and easily able to come down and chill. She would be perfectly calm and strong on the end of a rope.
She would have a good personality too. Friendly and happy, and maybe a little trouble making.
Of course she would be sound always too.
☺Honestly I think my Pony is my dream horse.
He's smart, funny, a little naughty, super friendly, happy, confident, and willing. He tends to think rather than react. He's not bombproof, but once you explain to him that a particular object is nothing to worry about, then he's fine about it. And he understands that very quickly.
He's wonderful to ride (after a year in training LOL). He's probably about a 5.5. on the "whoa vs go" scale in the arena, more like a 6 in the field. He will jump anything I point him at and has never stopped, ducked out, or otherwise given me any issues over jumps, which has been a real confidence builder. He's fun to teach tricks to and I've been working on teaching him to pull things. I have jousted off of him! He's cute, which doesn't hurt at all, of course. He loves to make me laugh (because he knows that me laughing probably equals him getting a treat). We're working on trail riding now, and I have no doubt that with some more experience he will be a great trail horse. We've also been working on riding with just a neck rope, and he's great with that also.
He's only 13'2 hh, so there's less distance between me and the ground when I fall (which I haven't in a while). He's super cute. He does what I ask, but he needs to be asked, not told; and he needs someone to be understanding and willing to listen to him. As long as he thinks he's being treated fairly, he's perfect. And why would I want a horse that would take abuse and still keep trying? Well, I actually have one of those too, LOL. I like it that Pony has an opinion.
I've had him for four years, and he's only eight and a half. Ponies are supposed to live a long time. So hopefully he will be with me a long, long time.
The only thing I really don't like about him is that he tends to be fat, and I have to stay on top of his diet, exercise, and hooves, and I really need to get his insulin levels checked also. And he's super hard to fit for a saddle because of his shape.
