Riley is a 17 year old 15.2 hh registered Appaloosa gelding.
His great-grandsire is Dreamfinder. He is trained in western pleasure, reining, and will go English but I just enjoy trail riding him! We've played around with some natural horsemanship and I recently got a dressage saddle, and have been riding him bitless. I mostly just enjoy trail and pleasure riding on this good old boy! Mostly I try to keep his arthritis in check and work on catching the spotted pill- as this is his worst vice!
My Boy's most endearing quality is his patience. He is also good at eating, being around children, dogs, cars, and other horses!
"Bad Reputation" a.k.a Luna
5 year old BLM Mustang filly from the Cold Springs, Oregon Horse Management Area.
(2 y.o. in above photo.)
Luna has had about 90 rides under saddle with a trainer. She is very drafty in build, already 15hh and wide, 1100 lbs! She is calm, athletic, and quick, but not graceful! She is smart and will work, but does not have a huge work ethic or energy drive. I hope that she can be a do-it-all kind of horse, including trail riding, moving cattle, or trail competitions.
Update: Luna is currently out on trial with her new family.
She will forever be in my heart. She was my first Mustang and will not be my last.
