Thanks for your welcome to the site. My horses' names are Amber Lee (he's the old guy) and Smaland's Littlest Angel -- my Palomino Morgan mare. I owned Lee's Mom for almost her whole life too...bought her as a yearling. She died five years ago at the ripe old age of 32. We did competitive trail riding together and she was a hot ticket. I still miss her so much. Her son, Lee, is her exact opposite -- very laid back. He's become my boyfriend's horse and is perfect for him. I ride Angel pretty much exclusively now
Thank for the nice statements, my kids showed POA's but have aged out now. They have cart classes but I have seen some of the worse accidents, individuals and animals hurt far worse then other equine accidents so I am not really sure I want to do cart. I have a facebook page for my tack store. Look for The Tack Spot. Plus it is a member on here too.
Thank you for the welcome. I use to ride but since I have had 3 back surgeries and lost my horses when my ex sold them after a divorce. I have decided to wait until I can really have the time to ride again so instead I started a tack store to stay in the horse business.
I started with clicker training dogs. I have studied clicker training in dogs for 20 years and taught classes for many years. I seemed like a natural transition to horses. Wish I had more time to work at it more. They sure respond well to it.
Showed miniature horses in the breed classes and I drove when I was a young person. So decided to to put the two together try it again and loved it. Now I play in the CDE & VSE with my single and this year a pair. I lucked out and found a certified driving coach and she has helped me along. Great lady.
Hi Ashley, I was student help, did barn chores, grooming, ect. The most fun and scariest job was exercising the 3 stallions, but I learned a lot! Turns out one of the mares I cared for, Easter Baskett, was Replays great grand dame, and Silver Dollar (one of the stallions) was the grand sire of a foal I rescued and had till he was 2.5 !
Karma, hey? Patti
She looks like a love:) I agree, I think people that think Arabians are too high strung or flakey haven't worked with them! They do require a positive, gentle approach or you'll ruin them. Can't approach them like they're quarter horses. The payoff is they are so smart and bond with you like few other breeds can!
Hi Ashley, I've had Replay for 3 years, but have really been serious about training for the last year. And, yep, I do love my Arabian:) he's Polish, so he's a bit bigger and has a lot more substance than most of his breed. Everyone thinks he's part quarter horse! My trainer has taken her Arabian through Prix st George , and thinks my guy could go that far:)
Hi Ashley, I have to say this site is a busy site. It may take me a while to figure it out. I'm not sure of the best way to put a link to my Blog site. I have found a few ways to type one in here. Also not sure how connecting with others works. I will figure out eventually. Thanks for telling me come check it out.
Thanks for the welcome! I do ride. I rode as a child/teen/young adult but then jobs, marriage and kids got in the way. Now that my children are all in school I am back taking lessons and part-leasing. I am having so much fun!
