I have been a self-proclaimed QH girl since the 3rd grade. Despite being surrounded by gaited horses (at the ripe age of 42), I refused to budge and spent most of my time "jogging" just to keep up. After losing my 3 year old QH to navicular, and wishing to never go thru that again, I went kicking and screaming to "the dark side" (as I like to jokingly refer to the gaited community) and decided to purchase a gaited horse. A good friend (and trainer) suggested that I look into G&G horses. After listening to my preferences and despite having more expensive horses for sale, Glenda gently guided me to Apache's Uprising, a 2 year old Spotted Saddle Horse, who she believed had the greatest natural aptitude to excel at competitive judged trail/pleasure rides...and right she was! I have had Apache only 5 months and since that time, he has excelled in all aspects of training and has ribboned in every division, in every ride in which we have entered to date. In addition to being an amazing fearless trail horse, I recently took him on his first camping trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains. The ride was longer and tougher than expected but Apache never quit and finished the ride, 8 hours later, with heart and determination. From where I sit and at the end of the day, Apache's goofy nature and loving spirit is far more valuable than looks or competitive ability...he has cured my broken heart...and for that, he is priceless in my eyes. There is no amount of money worth his value. Thank you Glenda...words cannot express my gratitude.
