Liz,

I just wanted to give you an update on Griffin. Griffin is absolutely incredible. He's a spunky forward moving horse, just the kind I like. But in addition to that he is calm cool and collected about everything.

He is sweet and lovable and I just adore him. We're doing just cross country work for the next 3 months. He's had 3 months of training in the ring and that's enough for a young horse. He needs to go out and see the world now and he just loves it.

He's quite a mover and as I said very forward but comes right back to you when asked.? He just flies over the ground.

I've had him out 3 times so far. The first two times we went with another horse. He could care less, leads or follows, whatever, but he's more into the person ridding him. Four dogs barking and running all around him and in and out of the woods, didn't care. Actually liked the dogs being there.

Third time we went out we got to the spill way where we have to cross an old wooden bridge. They had just opened the flood gates and water was gushing out almost over the bridge. My friend on her 7 year old mare whimped out wouldn't cross, wouldn't even get off and walk her horse over. Se went back to the barn and Griff and I continued on alone with the dogs for another hour and that horse was stellar.

He could very easily be the best horse I've ever owned and I've had my share.

He's just 15'2" now but I'm sure he'll grow more over the next few years. And he is going to be something really special.

Oh, PS, forgot to tell you.

Griffin hunted first flight on Monday for 1 hour and was incredible.  A natural born Field Hunter, just perfect.  We did about 8 fences and he took them all perfect without rushing them or messing up the distance.  It was just another stride in his gate and so easy for him.  One was a large coop that I know he has never seen before and he just went along over it with no big deal, just "Hey, this is kind of fun, but nothing to get excited about".
