Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Look, ma! I've got a person on my back! Sunni saddled




























































































Sunni's big day finally came this week~! My cousin, Valerie, came over on Monday and saddled and rode him. He was very calm, no spooks! She has done a wonderful job with him. He is now very confident and secure. I took some pics of the two of them. Valerie gives him LOTS of praise and her voice is so calming that he wasn't afraid. Look at him! I'm so proud of Sunni. She also rode him Wednesday and gave me a report on that ride, but I was at school and didn't get to see them together.

Look how proud of himself he is. Your pictures capture that perfectly. He wants to please Valerie and in the process he pleases himself. He'll make a grand riding horse.
Congratulations!

Nice. It looks like she did a very good job with him--very calm, as it should be.

He looks really happy and proud of himself in the end there.

That is VERY exciting news. Just last week I sat my butt in the saddle on my Piper. No riding around yet, but soon!
