Of course you love the horse you own now or the schoolie you regularly ride in lessons. But imagine that you could have any horse from the present day or some time in history, real or fictional. Which horse would you want to have in your barn?
If competitive riding is your style, you’ve probably got a few equine athletes you wouldn’t mind having in your barn. You could do a few barrel runs with Scamper, attack the nearest show jumping course with Gem Twist, or take a victory pass aboard American Saddlebred five-gaited champion Imperator.
But for some equestrians, the horse that would make a dream barn complete is a little closer to home. Would you wish to have your first pony back? Or the horse at your childhood riding stable that you always coveted, but were never allowed to ride?
