      Greetings from Donwenna LaMareschale, Deputy to the Society Equestrian
      Officer,
      I am not sure if you knew, but there is a very active Equestrian
      community in Meridies and I would suggest that you join their Equestrian
      Email list and see if any other horseback archers are hanging out on it.
      Here is the Kingdom Equestrian websites :

      Akhal-Tekes...ooooo yes. I wanted one badly for a long time...until I
      found out how short they are. :( My feet would scrape the ground riding
      one of them guys.
      I'm debating on whether or not to adopt a mustang. But then I have to
      find someone who will gentle it for me. What I'll probably end up doing
      is going down to the Livestock auctions in Phoenix and finding a horse
      there. I know someone who does this regularly, cleans up the horse and
      sells it for twice what she paid.

      The Friesian cross sounds beautiful...I'm jealous.

      Thank you for all of your replies.

      Hilary...I have just asked to join both of the yahoo groups you
      mentioned. Thank you for the advice.

      Jim...as far as horses go..have you heard of the Akhal-Teke breed...I
      am now obsessed, but essentially, the are an ancient horse breed that
      originated from the Eurasian Steppes...they are rare, and do very
      well at Endurance, etc. I am currently taking lessons and leasing a
      17h Friesan/Percheron/Saddlebred cross (looks just like a purebred
      Friesan, black with feathers :)but in 2.5 years or so, I plan to buy
      myself an Akhal-Teke.

      Anyway, thank you again for all the advice, and I also appreciate
      whatever other information anyone else has to offer.

      Have a great day!

      God Bless.

      Jennifer

        Hi Jim,
        When I look at Akhal-Teke ads, they refer to one that is 15.2h
        being "short" for an Akhal-Teke, and there are a lot that are
        16h...so :) Go to www.equine.com and do a search on them. I had a
        beautiful Grulla Mustang Gelding myself :) His name is Reno, because
        they caught him in Nv. and sold him out of Reno, and that is where I
        was born and raised :)
