So first off this is Nola, and all I can say about this lady is that she is BAD ASS. Nola runs Ro-No Ranch out in PA. She's a lot of fun.

wearing a gun holster, getting strapped into her custom fringed chaps.

|Bad Ass, I tell you.|
It's kind of amazing in person. You can see the camera bounce where I jump when shots are fired.
The videos are only a few seconds long, but rather than embed them all here I just made a playlist on Tucker's youtube channel. Enjoy!
Also... I am kind of in love with Calif. He is so smart and so talented. This stallion is not only sweet as can be....
... but also incredibly versatile. He rides, he drives, you name it. He has National Titles in Western Pleasure, Trail, Versatility, Driving, Cowboy Mounted Shooting, Barrels, Pole Bending and more. This guy even performed at the World Equestrian Games and Rolex... which is not something you can say about most horses. Kind of awesome!
He even packs around wannabe DQ's from time to time (honestly I have never looked dorkier, in jeans and Ethan's helmet, but I was not about to pass up the opportunity, and even though me and the seven year olds were the only ones in helmets all weekend... you know, safety first).
|So pretty. They need to make him a Breyer model.|
So, I loved riding him (sorry Tucker). Perfect lateral work and canter-halt-canter transitions all day long. I absolutely love him. When I first got on he was calling and ignoring me and then he was all business when I started riding. There is nothing better in this world than a good stallion.
He totally has that selfie disorder though. Just can't stop when he gets a smartphone in front of him.
Can you blame him though?
