Hey there horse fans! :frow
I thought it would be fun to make a thread all about me and my horses! This thread will follow up on the progress we are making together! Riding, groundwork etc!
I buy horses that aren't being used and sitting out in pastures going to waste. Then I work on riding them, teaching them to be respectful to their owners, lunging, trailering, desensitizing them to whips, plastic bags, traffic dogs etc. Them I match them up with people that are looking for good family horses!
I also have some of my own horses that I am keeping FOREVER!

(Lightning)
Age: 10
Gender: Gelding
Breed: Grade
Height: 15.1 hands
Color: Palomino
Info: I purchased, Lightning, as a green broke horse 7 months ago. He had not been ridden in about 4 years and spooked at everything!:th
He would bolt while leading him, needed a TON of work at turning! I started him with direct reining them I slowly introduced neck reining, since I ride western of course! Now he's just about BOMB PROOF!
:celebrate
I was just galloping him through my field yesterday! A 4 year old has ridden him by herself. He's absolutely an amazing horse!

I took him for a walk down the road the other day!

(Pistol)
I actually don't have any pictures of him right now,:( but I'm going out to ride him so I let you know how he does and I'll update pictures of him!



Some pictures of (Bo) the last horse I sold to a family.
Age: 6
Height: About 15 hands
Breed: Grade
Color: Sorrel
Info: Bo, was such a joy to train! She learned everything so quickly and was very eager to please! She needed work on trailering, loping when asked, riding with a bit etc. But she picked up on everything I taught her so fast!
The owners are actually using her to give horseback riding lessons to kids! I'm so happy she has a great home!:love

It was too dark to get pictures of Pistol tonight. I will definitely get some tomorrow though.
He did great for riding though! I have been working on downward transitions and trotting with him. Whenever I ask him to trot he does but then breaks into a lope. So thats the biggest thing we are working on right now, is how to keep that pace without speeding up. He's also a little headshy and spooky so I have been doing a lot of desensitizing to plastic bags, whips and ropes.

I actually found a picture of Pistol, in my folders!
Pistol, is a 12 year old, 14.2 hand gelding. He's probably going to need more muscle and a little weight. He wasn't getting any hay at the original owners. They had, maybe a 2 acre yard and he was just eating the grass there. Now he's getting a lot of hay and 3 quarts of 14% performance horse pellets a day.

It's looks like it's going to be too cold and windy to ride today. I will have to see if the wind calms down.
