Oberon is our horse now (see below) - I sent the wire transfer and he should arrive within two weeks. We have renamed him and since we are a theatre family, we thought names from Shakespeare were appropriate: Oberon & Titania are the King and Queen of the fairies in "Midsummer Night's Dream".
Murphy & Molly are their old names. Molly is a rescue horse and I am paying for her training this month with James Cooler of Cooler Horsemanship. I am also looking at a paint gelding that I had my eye on a couple of weeks ago and my girls and I are driving down to Charleston SC to ride him and see what we think.
Oberon is six years old and is a reining/cutting horse. He is very responsive and sensitive to the rider. Both of my girls rode in a too big saddle and their legs were flopping a bit. Since he is pretty much a leg responsive horse, my daughter below (we won't comment on her posture :) ... cued him to canter by accident. Oberon slowed down to a walk immediately when she signaled, but the look on her face was priceless! "What was THAT?!" she had said. LOL
