I'm a sharer, I found my share horse through a friend of friend on facebook after a posting a status that I was looking for a horse to ride. I hadn't owned a horse for several years and wasn't riding nearly enough and missed it terribly also my personal circumstances hadn't been great. Initially I was looking for a ride once or twice a week to get back into it.
Emailed the owner she told me she had a 16.1 AAxWB 5 year old that she need some help riding. Wasn't too put off by the age as I'd helped school youngsters before. She told me the horse was away getting professionally schooled as she had two very young children and was finding it hard to get give him the time he needed. Still not put off I went to meet him. Turned up and a meet an incredibly scrawny looking fidgety wreath with possibly the most endearingly large ears. Still not put off, young horse needs condition etc.
First time I rode him I had a lesson with one of the people who had been with schooling him. Some bucking and very weak Still went back for more...
Been looking after him for nearly two years now. Hes bucked his way with me, biten kicked, point blankly refused to move, been an absolute pain in the rear. transpired I was the only one riding him and his owner was scared of him Couldn't for several months last year. I've gone from one day to five and he's now recovering from kissing spine op.
He's now a very nice horse, does not barge and I couldn't be without any of it. He's helped me through a very difficult personal time. Hes' awesome and I've loved the lessons he taught me and enjoyed working and training him so much more than I could ever imagined.
