I am from ***, VA and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years, 8 months and 7 days

Age: 13 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Dutch Warmblood

Height: 17.1hh.

Color: cherry bay, w/a beautiful star and snip right in the center of her face.

Type of Riding: Eventing. My kind of 'graduated' from Joe i guess, and wanted a younger set of joints to ride. so now they're jumping and competing at 5ft. (my mom had to take it down in the jumper part of it b/c apparently shes 'to old' to jump to high anymore! but i think 5ft. is HUGE! lol, i geuss when you've jumped 6'ft. 5 is nothing! lol)

My Horse's Achievements: foaling the perfect baby!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: anything!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: jump! lol, she likes to show (well i should say she likes to win!) umm, eating,running in the pasture, and trying to kill our minis

Pet Peeves: knocking rails down,rain,any kind of perfume/cologne- ,and any kind of food that isnt especially made for horses (shes wierd!)

My Horse's motto: A horse never runs as fast as when he has other horses to catch up and out run!

How We Met

When my mom had to retire her horse Joe, She started just riding random horses that came along. but she finally buckled down and decided she wanted to compete on her own horse. So 4 yrs ago we went to Great Britain (thats where my mom is from, and my grandparents live there) and she was talking to gramps about finding a horse. He said he knew a guy who bred some really fine Warmbloods that went on to do great things! So we looked the guy up, and found Abercrombie. She rode her for about 2 weeks, and we fell in love! So we bought her and my mom finished out her training, and showed her for 2 years. last year we decided to give her the year off (b/c we dont want to find ANY signs of early athritis) and my dad decided to breed her! She was sired to Gaelic Wind, and gave birth to Gaelic Opposition, the coolest baby ever! theres some pics of Gaelic Opposition and Gaelic Wind at the bottom! but anyways, just 4 months ago, my mom started to work w/Abby again, and now they're just starting back the fabulous show career they ended last year! (oh yeah, i know its kinda funny to find a Dutch Warmblood in Great Britain, but shes got the Dutch Bloodlines, they just imported her Granddam and Grandsire to Great Britain i think).

Sorry this is cut and paste but I'm trying to reach as many horses as possible. I will write properly later.

I was wondering if you could do my friends on the Dog Channel a favour? They are running for dog of the month and they need lots more votes to win. Would you go over there and give them a vote today and tomorrow? Their number is 85816. Their names are Little Bit and Paco.

You can log in with your Horse Channel information. Then click on the dog of the day and change the last numbers to 85816.

Thank you so much. Leaving you with a vote and hoping you're having a great weekend.

Unfortunately, you cannot leave a blog on the Dog Channel without a profile. If you would like to leave a message please stop by Eddie's page. Thank you so much.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Yeah, Dusty's really amazing to ride. For the most part, I couldn't really ask for anything better of him:) Voted! LOL a few weeks ago Dusty had been used in a lesson before me so I had to ride this phsyco pony named James. He's not used for lessons or anything and is hardly ever even ridden because my barn's owner moved and her daughter was the one who rode him. He's won tons and tons of things for jumpers, but he hasn't been competed with in a while. It certainly wasn't a very relaxing ride! He spooks at literally everything... He was pretty fun once he was tired and not trying to rip the reins out of my hands though LOL

Really all I have done is western and english pleasure, it hard to get a mustang into other things unless you're a really good rider people look down on you because they think you have a "wild" horse. But I am going to try dressage or reining in college i just haven't decided which yet.

No me and her are learning together, thats how we've done everything, we were both green when I got her. I have a friend who took some english lessons so shes helping me as much as she can. Theres also a little stud at the barn were I ride who was trained in every discipline so if you get on him you know exactly what you're doing wrong pretty quick. But english riding on the cost is really different it, it frustrating you go in a english pleasure class and its basicall ywestern pleasure with an english saddle.

No I never have jumped... I have only been riding her english a year or so and she hates the idea of jumping its like pulling teeth to get her over a barrel, but I think her colt might have a little ability.
