Okay, who all on here has horses? I 'Must know'!!!! Lol!!! What do you do with yours, and how long have you had them?

I have had horses all my life, and have done pretty much everything with them; I haven't 'perfected' alot of things yet though...I love learning new things about horses, and trying new training techniques with them.

My current horse, I have had for almost two years now...I am aiming at training him for dressage. Currently he is used as a trail horse; just refining his general riding skills.

Here he is...caught snoozing...well he was waking up when I snapped the piccie! Lol!



And just a 'pretty picture' of my beautiful boy!

I wish, I wish, I WISH!!! I've been riding since I was four, but am currently between stables, so to speak, so I havn't ridden since the summer :( . I am having seroius withdrawls.... I've never had a horse, but am determined to someday... probably years down the road, but I am going to have a horse as soon as I'm able! Sorry, I'll stop rambling now :oops: ...

oh, and Pride is so beautiful, er... handsome, as always! :)

I have 5 TWH. I grew up trail riding ang camping with them. Now we just have pasture decoration. With young kids I just haven't gotten around to much more than feeding them. :-(

I love the pict of the one laying in the pile of hay stuff!

I've had horses most the time, got my first when I was 4 or 5, I know my parents really hoped I'd grow out of them. Right now I'm not doing much of anything with mine, but I'm planning to get back in it! I'd like to rejoin a drill team I use to ride on, and I'd like to try mounted shooting. I also love reining and team penning.

My current horse is 5 and I've had him since just before he turned two. He's a paint.





Am I getting carried away? Sorry, I love my horse!

And I do have a few other equines, a pony I bought for my nephews. I consider them her owners, but obviously I have to take care of her so I guess she counts as mine.


And since I'm mostly responsible for them, these guys also count as mine. I'll probably have to sell them, although I'd love to keep them! I just don't own any land of my own. If only my dad would give me the 20 acres that are just sitting around doing nothing, but I just don't see it happening.
(the baby, not the mom, she's my mom's)



And my mom has around 12 and she doesn't do anything at all with them! I'd love to see her reduce that number to around 6, but for now they are just pasture decorations.

Awww...I'll take those babies!!!Lol!! I wish...If I had my own place, I would...but the boarding facility I am at is less than ideal most of the time...but we won't go there, or I will start ranting...Lol!!!

I love my horse, though, and any horse that I have the chance to ride, or play with :)

Muddy Creek: I love Jag...he's a pretty thing!!! I have raised a few from a young age too, and they are just the best!

Havirus: What's your lovely Palomino's name? He looks like a lovely horse...nice chrome too!!!! :D

Yes I forgot to tell his name! His name is Magic (Cupid's Majestic Lynx). The pony's name is Sasha, the dark foal's name is Joker (his mom is Midnight). And I STILL haven't named the little spotted baby, even though she's 4 months old now, just haven't found anything I like.

I'd really, really like to keep them to, but same problem, I don't have my own place. I have enough trouble keep Magic where I can see him regularly. Right now all four of mine are with my mom's horses in the farthest back pasture, I need to go get them and bring them closer, but it's not the easiest task and I'm kind of dreading it.

I hope you can figure out how to get them closer to you!!! I sometimes really hate having to board out, even though my horse and goaties are only 2 miles away...it stinks; I would rather have them in my back yard...

Here's a few more random piccies...compliments of my new camera :D

I am actually thinking about putting Magic in the yard for the winter, I know he'll probably have it looking pretty bad by Spring, but I think it'd be worth it to have him here. I actually do have some of the goats in the yard, girls in the back and boys in the front, until I work on some fencing (at mom's) I just don't have anywhere else to put the boys, and I don't think I stand not having the pg girls here, I wish they all could be here, but there just isn't enough room so the wethers and non pg girls have to stay at mom's. Why can't I be rich, so I could have tons of land and always have my animals close by!

Horses

Here is a picture of my 9 yr. old spoiled rotten Palomino mare. I have had her since she was a weanling. I also have a 25 yr. old racking mare who is retired from the show ring. They are mainly pasture ornaments as I don't have time to ride very much.

I have three horses, Destiny my 7 year old rescue mare we trained she's half arab and I ride her bare back, western and english. I also do jumping bareback on her. Then we have Half Moon, our 4 year old POA who was born on our property, I ride her as well she was trained by our friends and then we have Jasmine, our 6 year old POA mare, who is Moon's mom. She had a broken leg but is now ride-able.

I've been riding since I was seven and I consider myself pretty darn skilled.
