    Hi, I have no clue how to upload pics to the post! But I've got 3 boys, a 21 year old saddler gelding, a 11 year old Nooitgedaght stallion and a 9 year old Nooitgedaght gelding. I've had the two Nooitgedaght boys since birth as I've had their mom. The saddler boy is retired and I've had him since he was 2 years old. I'm just a happy hacker.

    Hi, yes the Nooitgedaght is one of 4 South African breeds. They are well adjusted to our SA climate and tough terrain, very hardy, extremely versatile and are selected for temperament. They are really awesome horses to work with and has a inbred affinity towards people.

    @Kidostud I had to google what the Nooitgedaght breed was too. Do you run endurance events with your horses or what activities do you do?

    @OMGeeeHorses your pony is cute, what breeding is it?

    @crimsongrey your horses are so energetic, typical geldings who like to play all day long.

    Havi, 7yo OTTB. My dressage pony. It's taken me a year to get his trust and cooperation under saddle. Last few lessons have finally been missing the NO! I don't wanna! attitude. He's still a pain to groom. Literally jumped into the air last night to get away from me trying to remove the mud from his coat.

    PJ, 17yo Painted Saddle Horse. He has a very nice true jog and some kind of lateral intermediate gait (running walk maybe?). I'm working Western Dressage stuff with him. He has surprised everyone (my trainer especially) with how quickly he has picked up the lateral moves. He's bombproof and highly interactive so a favorite with beginner adults.

    Primer, 20yo Paint (solid colored). He decided he didn't want to be a lesson horse anymore so was gifted to me by barn management. He's quiet and sweet. He's decided he likes little kids so we use him for lead line lessons and a few quiet older beginners. He's not fond of beginner adults. I think they lack the confidence he needs in his rider.
