Leo is my first horse!!!! (How is this real life?) I purchased him after almost two years of riding him as a lesson horse and then as a lease horse, only once I realized I could never say goodbye to my best friend.

He’s an 18 year old, 17.1 hand Rhinelander gelding. Leo was imported from Germany and did the big eq for a few years before some burn-out, getting sent to a sale barn and eventually becoming a very nice lesson horse by default.

He’s so handsome, has the biggest personality and always saves me from my amateur mistakes. He knows right when I need a gentle nuzzle, and I know he requires an apple every time I come out for him to be on his best behavior. I think we’re both lucky to have found each other just at the right time in each of our lives. He’s my best boy.
