    Default Guess what!

    I finally found a horse! I had heard from a friend that she had a nice horse sitting in her field that needed some legging up, so I decided to take a look.We worked out a free lease situation where Bartley Mill aka Doogal would come to the barn where I live and I would leg him up and make him into a into a child/adult jumper or hunter. Little did I know that this horse was previously owned by William Fox-Pitt and Will Coleman (Olympic Eventers) and had been a 2 or 3 * Eventer (4* prospect)! Although he comes with an 09' injury (dislocated hock... anyone have any experience with that?) I dont think I have ever sat on such a nice horse. We are only doing walking and some trotting but I can already tell that he has so many buttons! It's like riding a ferrari (sp?)! What's a post without pictures? Here is him before his accident, when he was still in Ireland:

    And this is him cross country:
