So much has changed in a year. One year ago today Lexington (or X as he was known in my blog) was put down. For those of you new to my blog, I lease X for a year. He was the first horse I really worked with after Gen. When I started leasing X, I still wasn’t 100% sure if Gen was going to make it. I was not sure if I could handle riding another horse. I didn’t know if I could handle showing another horse. I didn’t know if I could handle loving another horse. X was everything Gennyral is not. He was calm, well trained, steady and unflappable. He gave me so much. I would have never thought about leasing Phoenix if it were not for X. He gave me so much confidence and also taught me that you can expect a horse to be perfect for you. He was the Sainted Paint through and through. I could go on to a long post about how much I miss him, because I do miss him, but I don’t want to be sad today. I want to think about all the good and all the things he gave me. Here are just a few of the pictures from my time with him.
