My Horse Profile

Saddlebred from Chillicothe, OH

Dakota Wildfire

About Me

Active within 1708 Days

I am from Chillicothe, OH and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 10 months and 5 days

Nicknames: He was called "Peanut" when I bought him, but I don't know if it was the only name he's had. Anyway, he told me he hated being called "Peanut." He said his previous owner pronounced it with a nasaly "Peeeee" sound at the beginning. He wanted a better, more fitting name, so we came up with Dakota Wildfire. I believe it suits him much better.

Age: 35 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Saddlebred

Height: Approximately 14 hands

Color: Chestnut with a star and blaze

Type of Riding: We ride the trails around home, wooded paths, power line clearings. Also, we go to parades, and he seems to like that. We have done a few group trail rides, but it's usually just Dakota and me.

My Horse's Achievements: When I first started riding him in 1994 he shied at every blue line the water company had on the road. He also feared those scary weekly advertisers hanging from frightening mailboxes. Now he doesn't even pay attention to them. He is learning to bow and hug. Hopefully we can learn several tricks to keep his owner amused and give him some challenges.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Apple flavored horse treats from the feed store. But look at his pictures. He sticks his head in the living room window for Teddy Grahams.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Dakota seems to enjoy being in the cool woods when it's hot outside. He also likes to stand right beside the steps leading to the front porch.

Pet Peeves: He likes to be in front when we ride with a group. He does not like to walk on gravel.

My Horse's motto: Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things

How We Met

There was an ad in the local newspaper, and I wasn't happy without a horse. I called and left a message. From all the many phone calls his previous owner chose me to call back. I had to ask my youngest son to take me to see him because-well, I can't remember; it was one of those times when my transportation wasn't reliable. He was a spunky thing, but I was desperate to have a horse. His owner was asking $800; I asked her if she would take less. She said she had given $600 for him and would be willing to get that back out of him. She seemed concerned about how I'd get him home, so I told her I could just ride him the 4 or 5 miles to my house. Since she was actually afraid of him she arranged for another horseman to bring him to me. After getting him settled in, and realizing that he was really a very nice horse, I began the process of creating a wonderful bond between us. Now I've had him for 14 years, and I think more of him than any horse I have ever owned. He isn't a beautiful show horse, but to me he's just right..

He is an adorable boy and would love to get HOTD! We bought him at a sale and at first he was a small boney horse that only went up to a very fast and bumpy trot. Now he has really muscled up. So anyway vote Clue please! ♥ PS Dakota Wildfire is a beautiful horse!

Thanks!
Sounds like the two of you have a very special bond. And I LOVE his motto! LOL! I'm going to have to remember that! Parades seem like a lot of fun. I think Cooper is going to "march" for the boy scout troop in one of the Summer parades this year. We're going to dress him up like a little boy scout. He looks great in a ball cap! LOL! (Here is a thank you vote for visiting and voting!)

Come visit me, Cooper & Pixie.

Trick training
Since watching Stacey Westfall showing at the 2006 Quarterhorse Congress I've been excited about teaching my horse to do tricks. So far he's doing pretty well on the Bow, and the Hug, but I can't find any information/guidance on training the Spin. That would be a nice thing for Dakota and me to work on.

Come visit me, Dakota Wildfire & Chance.
