Going solo...

15+ year old Quarter Horse gelding. Old style QH with substantial bone and muscle. He is aloof, been through a lot of changes and needs someone to focus their attention on him.

Going solo...

I pulled Cassidy out last night to see how he'd do if I wanted to ride outside the round pen... alone. He did really well when Jessica and I went out on the trails, but I wanted to verify that wasn't just a fluke and that he was actually responding to me.

I was running out of daylight, but was able to spend some time grooming Cassidy. He's such a love and incredibly respectful! He just stands there with this 'ok - whatever you say' attitude. He's awesome! :)

I did work him in the round pen a bit before getting on, just to see if I could reproduce the 'bucking' issue he had a couple weeks ago. Again, he was just fine with the saddle and with me mounting and riding.

It was too dark to get any good pictures, but we did ride up and down the road, past houses, dogs, mailboxes, trash cans and through mud puddles. He was great. This boy has an excellent walk on him. He doesn't plod - he really moves out. I love it! So unexpected compared to his 'whatever' pasture personality! :)

Who actually owns Cassidy? I remember you saying he was going to go to Sams at the end of the month. It is too bad someone does not adopt this boy. He seems like a diamond in the rough.

Cassidy is still owned by CBER - he's a foster horse. However, it appears that he will most likely be adopted by Julie, the woman who came out to look at him a couple of weeks ago. She is just waiting for space to open up before being able to take him home. At least, that's what she mentioned a couple days ago.

I really liked her and the way that she interacted with Cassidy, so I am hoping that she will take him. If not, I may have to figure out how to keep him a while longer. I do not want him to go to Sam's - she takes excellent care of the horses there, but I don't believe that Cassidy would get much personal attention, which he thrives on.
