You are so funny! You change horses faster than I can keep up with you. I am so sorry that the horses before didn't work out for you. I know that must have been a huge disappointment for you. Soda is beautiful. What made you decide to get another horse that is not trained? Are you a trainer? I don't know how to train horses. You must have a wonderful tallent. :o) I want a horse that I can ride as soon as possible. There are always the "getting to know you" times when you first buy a horse that take awhile before you can ride after you first purchase, and I am still going through that with Sky, but to have to wait and train one, would drive me bananas! LOL You must be a very patient person. I wanted to go and ride this weekend, got a new saddle pad for my english saddle too and then my inlaws showed up. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm ever going to get to ride! Oh, and yes, I did finally get to ride my english saddle with Sky, just the one time and I LOVED it. She is a natural and the saddle felt great. I think English is definitely going to be for me. I felt so in tune and connected with the horse, it was great. Can't wait to get back on! When is your new horse's baby due? I can't wait to hear more about her. She sure is a pretty girl.
