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.

Status of the herd: Sunni
Sunni is doing fine. He and Quad get a lesson every other week from a local trainer and he's getting over his trust issues SLOWLY. He's not the kind of horse that you can be aggressive with. Instead, he needs LOTS and LOTS of praise. She's now starting to put a saddle pad on him (remember last year, he crow hopped and threw my cousin into the round pen rails? ) So, introducing him to new things has been a priority. He usually snorts at something new, but will relax when it doesn't eat him!
