Scout has been described as the biggest twerp on the place. We purchased him at four months old from our friends at Ravenwood Arabians in Ronan, Montana. He is a 2008 263/264 Arabian gelding. As a three-year-old we started his training with groundwork (I have put him through a lot of groundwork including halter work, in-hand trail work, lounge line work, and some ground driving. He is the only horse I have ever had that I could ground drive through and over trail obstacles.) After he became a three-year-old in June, I couldn't wait any longer to climb on him so since then I have ridden him about three times a week. Our third ride, he was loping in a really nice controlled way. This was a surprise to me since he looks like such a little guy, I thought he would have trouble learning to carry my weight. He actually tapes at 15'1" tall, but his cuteness makes him look smaller. He has been working so well that I took him to the Bonner County Fair horse show in walk/trot and I was pleasantly surprised at how well he behaved. Scout is a really easy horse to work with, however, he is not happy as a showhorse. After several shows, including the IEAHC horse show where he placed well, we decided to retire him from the arena and he now is the go-to guy for trail rides and for beginners or unsure riders.
