Stating to ask me about my horse is a bad idea, LOL....I'll go on for HOURS!
I bought a 3/4 Percheron, 1/4 Paint Mare in 04. She was a yearling then, and on 160 acres for the majority of her life. She didn't trust anyone or anything at the time I found her.
She is my everything. I have done all of her training BY MYSELF. I am NOT a horse "trainer", nor do I take lessons or anything. I don't follow any programs but my own.
She's just over 5 now, and we ride where we want to. She trusts me for everything. She is my happy place, my love, my....well.. you get it.
She is under saddle with both Western and Dressage/English. I ride her mostly bareback because of the comfort and ease. She is carrying a bit (has been since she was 3). She was 2007 High Point winner for Halter and Sport Horse. Again, all on my OWN!!! With Crohn's! (yay for me!).
At any rate I try to see her as much as possible because she is so wonderful. I am getting as many people into horses as possible. Hmm.... I might start this as a new topic actually...
Take care, off to ride!
