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.

    I am sooo very glad that you and Spunky had/have each other.
    He is beautiful. So, are you.
    Good friends are hard to come by. And always to be treasured.
    And everyone knows horses are better judges of what's what than men.

    Thanks, I think so too. He still looks really good. You would never guess his age except his back has dropped some.

    He is definitely my treasure and I have so many wonderful memories with him.
