I am afraid that I am going to cheat just a little on this one. Several months ago I was on Horseclicks.com and I found the most amazing horse. I would have given almost anything to own this horse. He is a 1997 stud Quarter Horse. I'm not real big on owning a stud but would have made and exception for him. He obviously is quite gentle, very well trained, she used him for all different things, and, if I remember correctly, even had video on her website of her using him to guide a trail ride, She was bareback on him and I'm guessing there were atleast a few mares in the group. He is about as perfect a horse that I have ever seen in both looks and tempermant.
He was owned and trained by a talented lady named Sherry in Gilbert AZ at supergentlehorses.com. It is my hope that when I move back down to AZ I will get to meet her. I have emailed with her a couple of times. I will also say that all of these pictures are her property, although I did get them off of bing images.
To go to Sherry's website click here She had plenty of video's of him and of her other horses on there. UPTDATE: I apologize, that is the link to Major's page only. HERE is the link to her page, I hope everyone takes a minute to check it out. I really love what she does. I think you will too.
UPDATE # 2 : I have just been in contact with Sherry who directed me to Majors new owners website. She says there are better video's on it than on her site. Here is the link for that.
So now, without further delay I present to you (drum roll please)
MAJOR HEAVY METAL
Please look carefully at these two pictures of Sherry and Major running barrels.
Note that she is not yanking on him, but simply guiding him.
I love that!
I am so impressed with her, through what I have seen on her website
and through the pictures I see of her.
It is my understanding that Major ran some great times too, and won his fair share.
