This is Jet. He's an AQHA registered Quarterhorse gelding. He stands
about 16-1, and is a pretty stocky fellow too. He's 7 years old (born
on tax day), and getting ready to embark on a great new life as a trail
and camping horse.
This update just in... I finally got to trailer Jet out for a ride in
Sunol Regional Park. He was absolutely wonderful. He balked a little at
his first water crossing, but by the time we hit the second stream, he
was playing in the water like a child. I'm a happy horseman, yes I am.
Well, things didn't pan out with Jet. He's a great guy, but there were some issues in his legs that meant no rugged trails. I've passed him along to a disabled riding school nearby, and he's apparently loving his new career as a lesson horse.
