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 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, March, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Oops! Quad shows some 'tude!!!
Maia, my trainer, thought Quad was ready to do his lesson yesterday down in the arena, so down they went. She was lunging Quad when all of a sudden, he blew up. I'm surprised that I caught it on my camera! It happened so quickly! He was trotting nicely when he suddenly bucked. And bucked. And bucked again. She thinks he took a deep breath and hit the cinch and it startled him. But, he quickly calmed down and continued his lesson.
