Okay, there was a major gap in my riding. I started riding again via a good friend of mine, the year was 1988. My teacher hooked my up with the above guy, meet Spunky (aka Champagne Jam), he was 5 and he is mostly QH and has a tad of TB in there. This horse was my saving grace. At the time I was married to a truly horrible man who had me convinced that I was worthless. If it hadn't been for Spunky and the positives that I got from him and my riding, I don't know what would have happened to me. I rode in some clinics with some very good pros and every one of them said, I hope your husband treats you as well as that horse, I always replied that he didn't, that is why I got rid of the husband and kept the horse. I still have Spunky, he is now 27 and still the light of my life.
