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.

Cali in the round pen

This was the first time that Cali had a saddle pad with a cinch. She's had a saddle pad on her back, but hasn't been cinched up yet. She gave a couple of half-hearted bucks, then settled right down. She's so easygoing! What a sweetheart! I'm going to try to post a couple more pics, of Quad's lesson, before Blogger goes haywire again!

She did good for her first time cinched. A bit of a shock when it first "bites" them

lol! Cali looks like a rodeo bronc in that last photo. I wouldn't want to be on her back right then.....I'd be on the ground! eeek!

Interesting how she fits in well as a western horse and and Quad looks good as an English horse.
