Rico playing rejonador/bullfighting horse all on his own without a rider . . .

Just doing what comes naturally!

". . . This most noble beast is the most beautiful

the swiftest and of the highest courage of domesticated animals.

His long mane and tail adorn and beautify him.

He is of fiery temperament, but good tempered, obedient,

docile and well-mannered."

‚ÄčThe Spanish horse is the noblest horse in the world,

the most beautiful that can be. . .

the lovingest and gentlest,

and the fittest of all for a King on his day of triumph.

LIfe of a Breeder

A trainer can go worldwide looking for horses to complete the show string
A breeder must create a show string at home. They must decide on each breeding, be there for each birth, worry about each cough, enjoy each great moment, endure each disappointment, and celebrate each victory.

Breeders cannot just go get another one, they have to make another one, wait a year to see what will happen, try to do this again year after year after year, learn patience, learn bloodlines, learn crosses, learn to stick with their gut and vision, and learn to persevere.

BUT, we also know that in life, there is no greater reward than walking into a stable and knowing that each stall contains a unique example of your work, and hopes and dreams. And to make all perfect, they love you back, and nicker when they hear your voice.

This is the life of a breeder.
