I am serioulsy interested in training and showing in western pleasure/western equitation, showmanship, and halter. I love riding on the trail as well as on the rail. I own 2 wonderful horses: Carol(IBA Sassy Too) who is a 18 year old QH, and my Oliver (registered name pending-A Slo Temptation) who is my little orphan colt.
Reining is one of those things I would love to try with Carol.
