George took everything I threw at him.

Eventing? Whatever.

Hunters? Whatever.

Side-saddle? Whatever.

Foxhunting? Whatever.

Bridleless & bareback? Whatever.

Fancy dress side-saddle with imported double bridle? Whatever.

George had the light-footed grace of a carthorse and the effervescent joie de vivre of a phlegmatic tank. We didn’t win or excel at any of these activities. We just did them. Whatever they were.

We did win a 3′ hunter class at a local show. I think the judge was startled that George got around the course. A lot of folks couldn’t see the point to George. His owner and I adored him.
