I just recently joined and I forgot to do my introduction..My name is Tina and I am from Hermiston, Oregon. I own 2 very nice well bred Peruvian mares, that I hope to one day breed. I don't show,…Continue
"I didn't get to ride for about 5 years. Once I could ride again, everything else took a back seat. Clean the house? Nope, its time to ride! Make dinner? Sorry Honey, I was out riding. Good thing my husband is REALLY understanding. He was just…"
"I agree completely. The first 3 I owned were totally show ring quality but the brains were not there to go beyond that. They were hotter than any Arabian or TB I had ever ridden and so aggitated all the time. Of the 3 only one had any potential of…"

I went through the exact same issue. I bought 3 geldings. I felt they were trail worthy after spending 2 hours riding them. I brought them home and it was a train wreck. I ended up hurt, my niece was hurt and I was really mad! Come to find…"
"Great question! I have often asked this with no answer. I currently use a barrel racing saddle with a rounded skirt and my Peruvian mare does great with it. I also have a gaited western saddle that fits my other peruvian mare and it's a great…"
