Let me say this to your last post of: It seems like I haven't had the best luck with horses in awhile, so I'm really hoping this gelding works out.
First of all, you're young, no offense intended. I say this because a lot of young people get in a hurry to do or accomplish things. Sometimes you have to slow down and take your time.
While I hope your new Quarter Horse works for you, if he doesn't, don't despair. Take your time, and if he doesn't work, find one the does. I wish you the best of luck as does every other rider or person going for that next horse.
Keep in touch and let us know how it goes...
