    Hey Bant - you like horses too?

    This is me and a friend's horse about 5 years ago. My friend has since moved and taken her horses with her (sob sob!)

    Have had horses all my life - ok not all my life - got my first pony at age 3 and have had equines ever since (currently 40).

    Currently only have two - My Phat Pony - she is an Arabian mare, born in 1985 to my bestest mare - G (G passed away in 2007 at the age of 30, we had been together for 28 years). I also have my petite Mustang - a 2002 model who is anything but petite - she stands 16.2 and make me feel little (5 foot 2 inches tall).

She uses him for dressage, jumping & vaulting. 11 yr old quarter pony named Sunny also my daughters dressage & jumping horse. 11 yr old paint that aint named Reggie he was a pony club horse & is now my horse. I'm learning dressage with him. 15 yr old pony name Rosie she is the family pony but my daughter is training her to ride. She was a pony ride pony but doesn't know how to be rode without being walked. She is a great little pony [​IMG]

    I am an avid equestrian with one kid on the varsity team and one will be next year. I ride a 31 year old Arabian. (not the only horse I ride... just my favorite that I had forever) Horses Rule!!!

    Motto: Keep the leather side up!!!

    I'm a horse lover too! We currently have four horses. Two quarter horse mutt geldings, the palomino is between 25 and 30 and the sorrel is about 7 or 8. We also have a registered black and white paint mare who is 2 1/2 and a 5 year old (we think quarter horse) red roan mare. There names are Sonny, Stetson, Cheyenne, and Sedona. We mostly just trail ride and fool around with some training.
