    Quite alright, he was a plodder, I tried to get him to do trotting poles, he tripped 3 times in a 8 line!
    He was slow, out of form, didn't listen to basic instructions, was obviously taught heavy handedly (that's not a word...) because to get him to move I really had to kick, and I felt so bad.

    Yeah, know what you mean. It's horrible when you see people having to boot their horses to make them trot.

    Good luck horsey hunting!

    Sorry to hear it...my last horse was only the third I looked at, so I was quite lucky.

    The first was a 6yr old Han x TB mare, in the ad it said "loves hunting, taken out by 13yr old girl". I went to see her and this young girl said that the owner wasn't there but she could ride her to show me. She then proceeded to plod round on her on a slack rein for about 5 laps of the school, before doing the same in trot. Then she said that she'd never actually jumped her. And she had a really swollen fetlock. I didn't even bother trying her.

    The second was a 6yr old DWB x TB mare, hadn't been ridden for 6 months. e got there and her eye was half shut, and she told me that she'd got fly repellant in it earlier. There was no running water in the field she was in, and they had to get bottled water they'd been using for the dog bowl. Anyway I got on her, walked and trotted round in this tiny field, and then the woman told me that I could go abit further down but there were stallions running loose!

    I don't have any pics of Kaifoon to hand, as I had him way before I had a digital camera....and I don't have a scanner. I will do at some point though, he was beautiful!

    Lolly 14.2 Anglo-Arab. I've been riding for most of my life, got lolly about 4-5 years ago though
    I've not ridden in ages, i just wish something could get me motivated again! I realllly want to move yards. eurgh.

    All that shines,
    Turns to rust.
    All that stands, in time
    Turns to dust.
