FROM A OWNER OF A RETIRED TREK HORSE -
Hiya, legend has it that my Old fella used to be one of your main stays - a mahogany bay standardbred named Dougall. Just thought I'd let you know that he's still going strong, will be turning 27 this year and made his Show debut last month as a 6 year old girls lead rein pony ❀

One of our ponies who didn't make it as a trek horse. There was two options and the one of having the honor of being called a rodeo bronc included breathing, so off Bandit went. HE JUST WON THE NATIONAL SADDLE BRONC TITLE!!! Go Bandit! Beautiful and quite on the ground but boy does he love to buck! You go wee man. LOVIN IT ... See MoreSee Less

We are so proud of our wee Bandit on the right for taking out the title of saddle bronc of the year at the nationals on the weekend! We got Bandit from a trekking business, he is super quiet and lovely but he just really enjoys bucking, so great to see him succeeding in what he loves to do best! Action shot to come // . . .
