I rode for five years. But college hasn't allowed me to return to it quite yet. I owned four retired thoroughbred mares saved from slaughter and re-trained them in hunt seat and jumping. I also rode and helped train a spotless appaloosa named Sassy. (:

I use to own a standardbred, he was beautiful and the best smooth ride. His health went south so quick. We called the vet for the emergency but he couldn't make it out in like three days. My horse past away.

I miss CJ, his racing name was Stylish Zombro. RIP
(I didn't race him, the previous owners that sold him to us)

I have been riding english for the past 23 years. I had a Palomino quarter horse named Sweet as Sugar for 18 years but had to leave her when work forced us to move to the city. I found a great home for her though as a companion and they send me regular updates. Still miss her though.

2 girls, 2 boys, 11 betta albimarginatas adults +fry, 8 betta macrostoma juvies and I think I'm running out of tank space!

Yup. :) I don't own a horse but I will someday. Right now I ride my cousin's horse every now and then. His name is Grey Lightening and he's such a charmer. x3

Here's the handsome guy. It rained for a few days when I took the picture so he was really muddy. xD

The view during our ride last Saturday. It was gorgeous! It even rained, which was tons of fun even though we were totally soaked afterwards. xD

I've done it. First time I got on a horse was at Griffith Park in L.A. it was a dapple grey quarter horse pony named Chilupa.

Next time I rode was during a field trip to a farm in Orange County. Bay colored Quarter horse filly. That was the last time I got on a horse until 2010 when I was part of a training program. It was an eight week class, students learned to ride and care for horses. First semester I was an observer, second time I was enrolled as a student.

I really loved it and hope to participate again.

Horses are such wonderful animals.
