My beloved Juliano is 18 today. Time flies so fast, I can't believe we have already spent 9 years together. Over these years he has brought so much into my life, amazing people, inspiration, oportunities - it'sbecause of him I'm where I'm now. He's a horse that puts a smile on my face everyday but also tested my will and patience so many times in the past. He has toughed me so much - how to be patient, have dreams and never give up. If someone told me 9 years ago that I would be riding Juliano bitless into the woods and not worry about my safety I would have loughed in their face. It turns out everything can be done, even situations that seem absolutely without solution at first have positive outcome. All it takes is a bit of courage, persistance and patience.
I hope we will spend another 9 years together and another 9 years after that - I will annoy the heck out of him and he will continue putting a smile on my face :)
Juliano is a very dominant and playful little gelding, “Master of Disaster” called by some. His spirit level is very high, always alert, easily bored. He acts like stable royalty both around horses and humans. Though he was gelded at the age of 8 he still thinks he is a stallion. “Crazy ideas and won't take No for an answer” that's his motto.

I have started riding at the age of 12. After a long break from riding and being around horses I was asked to look after Juliano as a favour. After few months I knew he is “the one”.
