For anyone who likes horses...

This is my lease horse, Mr. Jiggs. He's a Welsh cob/Arabian mix.

He's such a sweetie, and so cute! Very lazy though.

My mom would've taken some pics of me going over jumps, but there are no lessons on Sundays and so they don't have the jumps up.

Very nice. One of the horses I work with is a Welsh/QH cross (I believe). Gorgeous under saddle, even at 28 years old.

He's a handsome boy! I just started riding about a month ago and have been having a great time. There's an Appaloosa who always makes me laugh, Quarter Horses galore, and two Haflingers. I've been having such a great time and really enjoy going for trail rides.

Aww he's really cute! How tall is he?

Just because this is a thread about horses and I can't help showing off Louie, I have to put a couple of pics in here sorry :)

This is cross country at the show I was just at. Yes, I cropped my face out because, of course, I can't steal the attention from him ;)
Hope you don't mind lol

He's pretty small... I'm not sure. I'll ask when I go next time though.

LTF, of course I don't mind! He's gorgeous.

AHH!! this makes me even more excited for my evaluation on friday so I can get into regular lessons! Thanks for making this thread Betta Slave, I think I am gonna get into a horse crazy phase again after a longgg time :P

I love Arabs. This is the Arab/Paint X I used to ride all the time.

For the LONGEST time in the beginning when I'd ride him we would fight so bad, but after a while we became sooo in sync, really we had an awesome bond. All the kids who were scared to ride him in the beginning kept telling me that since I started working with him they weren't scared to ride him anymore cus he became much more responsive and better behaved. But the owner of the farm gave him to her niece cus she was a manipulative lady and started playing with my mind and feelings for this horse after a while. I left after that. It was a pretty toxic place, but I did learn my best riding at that place.

Beautiful horses! I used to volunteer at a therapeutic riding stable - it lasted for five years and I LOVED it there. I miss "my" horses ... especially Coco. Coco was a purebred Canadian mare, 25 years young. I loved that girl like she was mine. There was also Dora the Fjord, sweet sweet old girl. I think she must have been around thirty. I also used to ride and I miss being around horses so much! I might try lessons again sometime, when I have the chance.
