  • Description: This interview with Ronnie and Robin Little is a follow-up interview to their 2016 interviews (see 2016 OH 007 & 2016 OH 020 for additional discussions over the development of Mountain Pleasure Horse breed). In this history, many of the same themes of historical importance of the mountain horse are discussed. Robin Little reinforces the fact that the Mountain Pleasure Horse line continues to be bred along the old lines of the early Mountain Horses that possessed stronger bone structure, a strong willingness to work and a comfortable and smooth gait. Midway through the interview the next generation of Mountain Pleasure Horse enthusiasts join the conversation. Jenna Ginter and her two sons, Ryder and Jeff Ginter join Robin and their grandfather while Jenna shares stories about the Mountain Pleasure Horses' versatility and willingness to please and work.
