How We Met

My first horse I got when I was 10 years old, She was an ancient AQHA, Sunshine.(my dad was terrified of horses, and wanted something dead broke)shortly after getting her she develpoed a breathing problem (heaves)and after two years, I was unable to ride her. So for my 12th birthday(which is Sept. 20th) My dad took me horse shopping, I went a looked at several horses, and after several weeks ended up looking a Vegas, who was currently owned by the same person Sunshine was owned by. He was a 4yr old, half wild mustang. But I was in love, watching him run circles around the pasture at the lady's house. Two hours later when he was finally saddled (it took an hour to catch him, and an hour to saddle him *we gave up trying to put a bit in his mouth, and just rode in halter and lead line*)I was heaved onto his back, and though a little spooky at EVERYTHING, I could see potential. After we said our goodbyes to the lady and got back in the truck, my dad said, "so next horse on the list". I smiled and said that was the last horse. He looked both worried and confused and begged me to look at another one. Any horse, just not that one. Stubborn as I am i stuck to my plan, which was to get this mustang and train him to be a GREAT horse, MY great horse. My dad however refused to buy the "crazy wild thing" and for the next couple months, while I was forced to look at other horses, I dreamed of nothing but Vegas. And lo and behold Christmas morning, much to my surprise he was racing around my pasture, tail streaming behind him, neck arched, nostrils flaring. It was just like the first time we had met three months ago, only now he was mine.
Now nine years later, i'm 21 and he's 12. I can whistle and he meets me at the gate, and puts his head in his halter, ready to go for a ride. I can cover him in bells and garland and ride him in the local christmas parades, he gives pony rides to my little sister, and loves to jump, run barrels, or go on trail rids, I can load him in a trailer, he has become my everything horse, he helped me train my other horse (Georgia a 6yr old Quater Horse cross)from the time I got her when she was 4 months old. And though now i'm busy with college and work, I love the evenings when I get home and they bothe meet me at the gate, and if there's no time to ride I just brush him and talk to him while he munches his hay.... There is no other feeling quite so fullfilling than to take something, so scared and untrusting to being your best friend....
