So, after a torturously long wait, I finally got my horse in September. 2007 TB mare, 15.2, retired after 5 years on the track and 39 starts.
I’m still not sure exactly what I will be doing with her (currently we’re still working on “don’t chase the other ponies”), but if she takes to it, I would love to event. And I am wondering if anyone has anything to say about her conformation in regards to the discipline.
Back in July, right after a race (excuse the fact that she’s turning her head away from the camera and making her neck look short):
First time in the round pen in September:
Also, as you can probably guess, her withers that go practically halfway into her back are the bane of my existence at the moment. Any saddle suggestions that I can find (new or used) for less than $1500-2k?
