I'm definitely a horse person :)

I've been riding for almost 14 years. I show hunters and school green horses for my barn. My partner of 8 years was Tobasco, a 3/4 Arabian who is now retired. My partner after that was Moonstone, a lovely paint mare who is also now retired, due to a fractured navicular. Now they're both fat and happy living in the field. Now I'm working an OTTB named Gus, who is lots of fun. He'll probably be in the show ring by the end of the summer.

Bettas:
Colonel Mustard- Mustard Gas Male DT
Professor Marvel- Red Butterfly Male DeT
Hannah- Red Butterfly Female VT
Holly- Turquoise Female VT
Violet- Bicolour Female Spadetail
Molly- Red Female VT
Georgie- Multicolour Female CT

The Rest of the Menagerie:
Tobasco, Moonstone, and Gus (the horses)
Boots and Snowy (the cats)
Beatrice (the bunny)

Wow. That's a long time. Lots of time to see horses come and go, and time to learn.
Yay for Pog! No more of THAT barn!

I ride, an American Quarter western. I also ride about 9 other different horses at my stables :) I am addicted to horses, and cant stand to be away from one! There is just something about them that makes everything calm and relaxing. riding also is VERY fun!!!!!
Sometimes we show to (a mini show) where we have food, play games with the horses, canter around the arena, and then play music and hand out awards :) SO MUCH FUN!

Glad there are some horse people on here!

Ahahaha when my mom watched my lessons she'd always say "WOW you're so brave!!" because I would jump 3 feet without stirrups or reins.....and if a horse bolted at me back then, I'd flip out and run away. But now natural horsemanship has changed me xD If a horse is running AT me, I just take my carrot stick and jump at the horse, snapping the whip on the ground. I did that to my old horse Wilma, who used to hate me because I tried being a lead mare (she is the most dominant mare in her herd, she's the lead mare) and she KNEW that I was the one keeping her from her buddies....she KNEW that the halter meant work and riding.....one day I was the only thing blocking her path through an open fence, and she started galloping right at me, but I jumped at her and shouted and whipped the ground. Well, she stopped immediately, put her head down, and let me put the halter on her. I don't know how I managed it but it was like magic....after that she had tons of fun riding with me, playing games, and she started to respect the halter rather than fear it (She was also abused and mistreated, which is why she hated any kind of halter or tack)...

One funny thing is that when she hated the halter, the barn owner used to take halters and lay them over her feed bucket, and stick them all around the stall so she'd associate it with treats and food....It was funny because one day I walked into the barn, and 9 or 10 halters were all laying in the middle of the barn aisle...I was like "What the heck happened here?" and as soon as I thought that Wilma picked up another halter and flung it out of the stall xD
She's a real character but now I have Nasdaq so everything's changed.

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail
