Dolores and Wynn went on a trailride once in Midlothian. All the other riders were getting saddle sore and wanted to trade horses with Wynn. He was the smart one because his was the only gaited horse in the bunch. Gaited horses are very smooth to ride on. He loved that horse but I remember getting bucked off of it once when my cousin, Kathy, and I tried to ride him double. :-/
