    AMAZING!!!! Just caught up on this thread and I am so impressed by your approach and it's so cool you are an eventer too!!!! Obviously you do a bit of everything but it is refreshing to see an "english rider" too

    I'd have you start ANY colt - love how you train! Congrats on doing this and I'm so glad you took Fledge home.

    Let us know when he's entered in his first Starter Trial - heheheheee

    I will definitely keep everyone updated. His next outing will probably be a dressage show, and he will go to his first event next spring I think. He has a Facebook page www.facebook.com/FledgeTheMustang and of course we will post updates on www.teamwallace.org and our facebook page as well www.facebook.com/Teamwallace. Thanks so much again for all of the support of my incredible little mustang!

    It was truly inspiring to watch. I am so glad I'm not the only one teary eyed. I didn't want to be the only one to admit it!

    Can't wait to hear the updates.
