Oh my goodness I want to hug them all!  I haven’t ridden in so long and I miss it so much!

Me Too!!!

I had horses all my life. We usually had American Quarter Horses. Sadly I don’t ride often. My mom has horses, but after my parent’s divorced, my dad sold his and eventually moved to a city. He has one now, which I ride occasionally at the stable he boards at. I miss it like crazy. I’m secretly hopeful I can convince my Future Father-In-Law to let me get a horse and keep it on their huge dairy farm somewhere.

This is me (in front) on my mom’s horse, Golden Belle.

This is me on our family’s horse “Bug”.

The first horse of my own, Ferdin. We are at a horse camp through 4H.

And finally, my second horse of my own, Quincy, aka Amber’s Counter Quincy. She was born and raised on our farm. We’re at an AQHA show in this pic.

Awww! How awesome! Some really good pics on here ladies! Although I dont have any horses myself right now, I spend my weekend volunteering at a Ranch for resques! I love them all, and love spoiling the crap out of them, just made them easter cookies that were a hit! LOL

I love them all, and hope to see them one day find good homes, not all are able to be riden, so it makes them hard to adopt out, plus with hard times now! But what can you do! They have already been given a second chance and have good lives right! so yeah, thats my input for now! LOL

I always have issues uploading pics, but you can find them all on petfinder, under Whidbey Island Resque Equines

Yay ponies! This is my lovely horse… She’s a thoroughbred, only about 15.2 and 7 years old. She’s been a great university horse for me – I haven’t had the time or money to compete so we’ve just been hacking and schooling since I got her as a 4 yo πŸ™‚

She’s nothing special (wouldn’t be worth much) to anyone else but we just click – I love her more than any of my previous horses, she’s just so cool.

AND, now that I’m done with the wedding and am working full time… maybe we can do a bit more together! DH sold his flash motorbike so we can buy a truck to tow the horse float (horse trailer)… his idea, too! He’s so lovely. He’s ridden her a few times and they get on pretty well too πŸ™‚

The last photo is what I want to get back to! That was a few years ago now and two horses ago…

Great thread!

@caitlan – so much fun! We don’t have easily accessed trails around here, so Lily’s never been on one! I assume it won’t be that big of a deal for her, though, she’s not a spooky horse. And well, she was wild! You’d never know it with the way she hates mud, though. 

I love Stella, she’s gorgeous.

I’m NOT a horse girl…kinda afraid, I’ll admit it! But my mother LOVES horses and she would love the eye-candy (ponie-candy!) of this thread!!!

but I am getting married on Mackinac Island where there are NO cars so we will be having a horse and carriage and I can’t wait for that πŸ™‚

I love Macinac Island! I was trying to convince my guy that it was an excellent honeymoon spot- he wanted beaches but we compromised with the promise of a trail ride.

 

Agh, I wish I could ride doing the school year but the coach for the school’s team is crazy and the riding association only has adult size western saddles (all of them have to wide of seats and too long of stirrups and they didn’t take kindly to me going without stirrups)

Meet Reese’s PB Cup, a 9-ish year old QHxWelsh mare. She kind of has the committee look. Her first owner out grew her and a former coworker of my dad’s bought her. I worked with her for two summers to try and tune her back up. Thankfully she is now a lesson pony and doing very well. I think her long back would work well with sidesaddle.

And there’s my “trainer’s hunch” and my last instructor called it. I developed a slight lean and braced feet from a previous barn when I always was put on the geenies and those that didn’t have breaks (I thought it was fun until the same pony laid me out twice, second time sending me to the ER.)
