    We surprised my daughter with her favorite horse! She had started riding her because the guy was no longer using her. He was trying to make her an english horse, she was trained in western pleasure. As she rode, the owner, barn owner/riding teacher and I all decided that they made a great team! So I bought her and we kept it a BIG secret for the next few weeks until her 8th birthday!
    She is a 10 year old registered paint.

    Lucky little girl. Hopefully she will have that horse to grow up with. I got my first horse 20 years ago, and still have her.

    I hope so too! I just lost my horse after 19 years together. It will be a year coming up in December. I lost him 3 days before Christmas [​IMG] Growing up with him and the bond we had is something I will never get back with another horse. I hope that she will have that life long bond with Cheyenne and that they will grow together! The horse is 10, my daughter is 8 so they should have many years together [​IMG]

    Sounds great. My first horse was 2, but I was older. I hope they have many good years together.
