    Maybe he was trying to copy this guy. The Mule Man's been at it for about 30 years, I see him from time to time.

    I'm plagued by lemons, I'm on my third one. Had to put down the last two. It's so frustrating watching my friends go out, try a hand full of horses, then buy a nice one. I always go through 70+...

    Arnold used to ride. Back in the late 80's he had a white Andulsian, I forget what type of horse his wife had. I don't think he ever took lessons, but he would hit the trails when he felt like it. I...

    Wow, beautiful horse. He's obviously been cared for, and recently. Wonder where they found him? I reposted it since I'm in So. Cal. Just noticed it says they checked for a chip and he doesn't have...

    Think I've posted this before.

    Called about a Paso Fino for trail riding. They said she was wonderful, went anywhere, by herself or in a group. Through water, anywhere. Great ground manners. Used...

    Rode a friend's haflinger a couple of times. Didn't spook at anything. Nothing. But definitely had her own mind about how to do things. Loved her, very sweet pony/horse.

    Great video! Shows that the TWH was once a true "glide ride". Those horses have such nice, square walks.

    My understanding is that these are running walks, what the breed is supposed to do:

    Then you've been very lucky. In over 20 years I've seen *one* TWH do a very nice running walk, everything else paces. Nothing personal, but I've learned to be very skeptical when people say their...

    That's good to hear. Unfortunately, it's going to be a long time before the breed recovers because running walk has been bred out in favor of the pace. So many owners don't even know what a running...

    I love doing both, but only have time for one, so trail riding has replaced hiking.

    So the buyer is supposed to know *exactly* which questions to ask? Asking about health and soundness is too vague. Sorry, it's the seller's responsibility to let someone know any possible problems.

    This would make an interesting study. You would have to dress men and women the same, only showing the face, and see if horses can tell the difference. Using horses that people claim prefer men/women...

    How would a horse be able to tell the difference between a man and a woman? I can understand a horse would prefer a certain riding style.

    This horses must be so stoic, brave and bomb-proof. I want one for a trail horse, or do you they'd be bored just trail riding? :D

    Be very careful with those horses. Anything in So. Cal under 5K is usually very green (you might be able to handle that, I can't) or has serious problems. If you're looking in that area I suggest...

    When my Icelandic was unhappy, he flipped his nose in my face and expected me to do something. He was never shy about letting me know how he felt. :)

    The vet part bothers me the most. It's rare for anyone to allow a vet other than their own to do the PPE. Or, if they allow you to take the horse and use your vet, if there's a problem you can't...

    I'd like to see some regulation regarding horse sales. Not likely to happen because horses are a luxury.

    Require any horse publicly listed for sale to have a price. Especially sale barns.
