An Update from the Riggan Family in North Carolina
I hope this letter finds you and your family doing well.
I’m writing to let you know how happy we are to have Radar. He arrived on our farm looking just as pretty as he did in the pictures posted on your website. He was well groomed and healthy. Although I have two other horses, I kept him in a corral by himself for a few weeks to give him a chance to adjust to his new surroundings. During that time I brushed him, petted him and fed him seperate from my other horses. I could tell right away that he was used to being handled. I had no problem rubbing down his body, brushing him or picking up his feet.
The first time I rode him was in my riding ring. I was able to put the bridle and saddle on him without any problems. He is definitely rein broke and easy to ride. The next time I rode him I took him out of the pen, rode him across an open field and down a wooded path. As we were going down the path I saw his ears perk up. A deer stepped out of the woods right in front of us. He didn’t flinch or miss a step. He wasn’t spooked by the deer at all. Most horses will jump side ways when a deer suddenly steps out of the woods in front of them. He didn’t act nervous at all. We rode to the end of the path, turned around and came back to the barn. I took the bridle and saddle off of him and put him in the pasture with the other horses. He is everything that you advertised him to be.
I live on a 100 acre farm with lots of pasture land. Radar has plenty of grass to eat and gets lots of exercise. I have a herd of black angus cows, two other horses and two border collies. He has a good home here and I am really happy to have him on my farm. I have been around horses all of my lilfe and have found Radar to be a well trained, settled and easy to handle horse. He is exactly what I was looking for.
I have an eight year old granddaughter who is learning to ride. Right now she only rides in my riding ring. She has been riding one of my mares but I have let her ride Radar. I am sure it won’t be long before she wants to claim him as “her horse”!
Time goes by so fast, it’s hard to realize that I have had Radar for almost a year now. I just wanted to let you know that I am happy to have him and plan on keeping him for a long time. Thank you for your excellent service!
