Guinevere

Guin is one of the horses I got in 2004 when I decided to get back into horses. Technically, she’s my husband’s horse, but I’ve claimed her. She’s really the perfect horse for me: She’s short in stature, but solidly built and up to my weight. She doesn’t have much training, but she’s incredibly good-natured and willing. She’s great for a person with fear issues, because even with her low level of training, she just makes you feel safe.

Currently Guin is living in Olympia with Leslie Peeples. Guin doesn’t handle living alone well, so when we sent Blue south, Guin went with him. She is blissfully happy down there. I had hoped Leslie might be able to use her in lessons, but Guin isn’t sound right now. So she’s eating her head off in safe, happy retirement.

The one downside to this girl is that she isn’t photogenic. Seriously. She is gorgeous in real life, but she always looks coarse and blocky in photos. Very frustrating.

Check out The Clicker Horse Diary for lots of stories from the first two years with Guin, Blue, and my other horses.

Probably the best picture I have of her. And the most recent.

Guin trotting toward the camera. Good view of the crescent moon on her forehead and her long mane. (She’s not fat like this anymore. This is an olllld picture.)
