Blue Ridge is a fictional town located deep in the heart of Kentucky. It is home to one of the most well known equestrian academies in the United States. Students and staff from all over the world join the academy for what it has to offer. Do you have what it takes to join us and learn from the Academy?
So, I decided to introduce my boy, Nugbug. He's the only horse I own and one of the best horses I've ever had so far. So, here he is!
I've had him since February. He's a palomino quarter horse who's still green under saddle - he has excellent ground manners. He was left in the pasture for two years before I bought him. He has thrown people in the past, but I've never had a problem with him. The person who started working him worked him with a bit, so going bitless has been our more recent challenge.
He's stubborn and total momma's boy. He's always right by her side and will call for her if she's not in sight. He's a very smart boy. Only four days into training and he's not turning his rear end to turn in the round pen and when he's told he stop, he turns toward whoever's in the middle. He's a bit lazy, but completely willing to work as long as he knows he's getting some food afterwards.
I was told he's around 5 or 6 years old, so he's still a bit young, but extremely patient. He has his off days, more than the average gelding, but he's still not too terribly difficult to deal with. His mother is a golden palomino and his father was a buckskin. He has one little brown spot on left side. It's roughly the color of his mother's coat. She has a light spot on her chin close to his coat color. It's kind of adorable.
He's one of many horses in the pasture, though I'm hoping to buy a black racking horse named Smokey one day. ^-^ I'll get pictures of him when I can and probably get pictures of the rest of the gang too!
