My handsome gelding isn't mine anymore.
I was talking to him and cleaning him up, with Akila, one of my mini's looking on.
Linda brought her saddle and rode him. She gave me a check for him, but he won't be going to his new home for another week due to some problems with the other horse she was supposed to get today. The trailer had a flat, and the horse was lame...long story...so Rebel will stay here until I get back from Ocean City Maryland, where I will be with Bob for his surf-fishing tournament..his 22nd, and a yearly event since before we met.
Linda looks good on him, and he was a perfect gentleman even though he hasn't been ridden since last April. He's a wonderful horse, and I wish I had the nerve to ride again. Since that mare I rode almost killed me, I haven't been able to get back on, even though Rebel is an excellent horse. Linda said I am welcome to come and ride him when he's in Gretna...maybe someday I will get the nerve up again.
Melissa and Sam,her 8 yr old daughter, are on 'Jagger', (Melissa's gelding), and Sam is on her horse 'Princess'.
They were to be my riding buddies before I got thrown.
They had a nice ride, with no problems, except Jagger's usual spookieness, but Rebel offered no trouble what-so-ever...I was very proud, and a longing is still in the pit of my stomach, but I can't bring myself to get back on...
