Quarter Horse - Easily distracted, but great longterm friend

Tea was a great learning horse. He had unique qualities for first time students to feel comfortable with; However, he was easily distracted. Food and grazing was a familiar style of his. Despite working around food schedules to accommodate this problem, he generally did not enjoy long lesson sessions. He had a very short attention span with little repetitions as possible. Many attempts were made to adjust meal time, play time, and habits in general to make him a more teachable horse, but he never quite attain that level. Regardless, the pluses were many when dealing with him, if training was not the end all or be all. I believe by trait and nature of his breed, he is of greatness, but he has his own
personality, just the way humans are individually.
