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.

Quad in the arena
Quad in the arena is very different from the Quad in the round pen. First, there is more room for him. Second, he gives much more "tude" (attitude). He knows he can get loose...So, here are some pics of him in the arena, including him giving Maia some "tude". She told me the first time she took him down there, he bolted and got loose from her. So, now she round pens him first, makes him STOP at the gate, opens the gate, turns him around, makes him STOP again, then calmly walks him and lunges him in the arena. He hasn't bolted since, but he does still give her some "tude"!
