Horse Riding in Cooktown
Abigail is a big 10 year old thoroughbred mare that any young or older beginner with confidence would love. She can step it up or tone it down. Here she is being ridden by one of my riding club kids Coralee who is a light, young, and confident rider. She is more suited to lighter riders like Coralee.
Apache - a 10 year old 15.2 h.h. paint gelding.
Apache taught one of my young riding club kids to ride in 2008 - from a total beginner to a confident young rider but he lost his gentle disposition somewhere along the way and 2009 saw him as a pain in the backside with an attitude. Perhaps he was broken hearted when young Cassia, whom he loved, started riding Anook? Now he needs to be re-handled by myself before I can trust him with another beginner - but he is still perfect for a rider with horse handling experience.
