***"Hi Brenda, Deringer settled in great and has been a fantastic addition to the barn! I
wanted to let you know how much fun we are having with him. My trainer came
out today to work with him a little on the ground and Deringer was amazing!
He was lunging so well that we decided to try and put a surcingle on him and
it didn't even phase him. Then, we decided to try and put a bridle on him
and he was great for that too. He is like a puppy! My trainer said that he
is the easiest and most talented two year old she has ever started!"

I wanted to give you another update on Deringer. He has settled in really well to our barn and is extremely well behaved and trainable. I think heís probably the smartest horse I have ever worked with!
