JUSTICE - 5-1-1991


Justice is one of our older family members. Justice is an ex-show Appendix Quarter Horse, who developed navicular. With good shoeing and care, he has remained sound. With quiet riders Justice is slow and lazy, with over exuberant riders Justice is ready for a jump course. Many of our independent riders enjoy the more energetic Justice, just the opposite of the typical therapeutic riding horse.
