Hi I'm Sara. I've popped in here from time to time and I have a question. I've had horses since I was 6 and ridden since then. Had about 4 or 5 yeas of lessons in Hunter Jumper stuff and worked cows etc... I've ridden COUNTLESS different horses etc... BUT they were all old and NONE were Appy's. I'm currently looking at a 2 1/2 year old Appy mare...Leapord that MIGHT reach 15hands when full grown (doubt she'll get that big) She's green, but been under a trainer for several months... I haven't met her YET but will do so ASAP. According to the owner of the mare she is a NICE girl loads, unloads, ties and all that jazz. My primary experience has been with Arabs so I think I can handle an Appy... I just don't know much about the breed... Does anyone have anything to say about my thoughts... I'll see if I can get a couple pics onto my shutterfly so I can let you guys check her out.... Thoughts?
