It is hard being a royal horse. One must take care of the residents of your kingdom. The SPS wanted to attend a clinic and needed a horse to ride. Seems he of the spotty butt still isn't working correctly so he can't be ridden...he is such a peasant horse. I took it upon myself to grace the clinic with my presence and allowed the SPS to ride me at said clinic. I was admired by all in attendance. I do have to point out the I was slightly humbled and embarrassed when the SPS became unseated. I was doing some evasive maneuvers at one end of the arena which was made up of a jump up, a jump sideways, and a sit down spin at top speed...one must stay in top form. Well the spin was one move to many for the SPS. I made sure to maintain a more regal demeanor for the rest of the clinic and we had a good time. Tue ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito (Yield not to misfortunes, but advance all the more boldly against them)

Sir Darby is a 20 year old appaloosa /Percheron cross. A royal horse who has been displaced and is now living at a working ranch. He is training his SPS (special personal servant) the proper care and handling of a royal horse.
