My Horse Profile

Quarter Horse from Cotopaxi, CO

Sierra

About Me

Active within 558 Days

I am from Cotopaxi, CO and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years and 3 days

Nicknames: Dunno what her show/registered names are.

Age: 26 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: About 16 hh

Color: Sorrel, with a star and a short white sock.

Type of Riding: VERY basic dressage, English flatwork; she does do western, although I've never ridden her that way, and I have jumped her lightly, but she has mild arthritis, so we don't do that anymore.

My Horse's Achievements: Being a calm, obedient, and sweet lesson horse, that moves readily off of leg cues. Also, cantering on her right-hand lead on the first request at a lesson! She's getting better and better at it, I'm so happy!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Hmmm... well, like most lesson horses, just about anything.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Get head rubs/scratches/- massages, eat, rest in the pasture.

Pet Peeves: Cantering on the right lead (she's very left-sided); other mares, and the flies that love to chew on her.

My Horse's motto: Put off and evade work in any little way you can think of, but not enough to make the people angry. And then, work willingly once they've got you, so that you can go back and laze around in the pasture again sooner.

How We Met

She is not my horse. She was the first horse that I took lessons on at a certain barn. Like Brass though, I don't own her either, she was also a lesson horse.

I stopped taking lessons for various reasons over a year ago, and have not seen her for quite some time. I am currently once again without a ride.

i hope everyone had a wonderful weekend :) i certainly did! i had a four day weekend, i was out of school on friday and today. it feels amazing outside right now, it's supposed to be 79 degrees here today! i love this weather and i can't WAIT for summer break :) anyways i got my drivers learners permit on saturday morning, so now i can legally start learning to drive! i can't wait! and afterwards my dad drove me by sandy's barn for about five minutes so i could pet him and give a big hug and kiss! (this was rare because my dad never does that!) it's about time to bring out the fly mask! haha and shedding season has officially begun! anyways and then i had my lesson yesterday which was fantastic! im trying to upload a video right now, it's about eight minutes long so it's taking awhile to upload but i think you all will enjoy it :) and yes i got to wear my half chaps for the first time to my lesson yesterday! they're so nice, alittle tight but nice! im still breaking them in, it should show them in the video. i got to canter again! i was soooo proud of myself because i was able to canter without holding onto the saddle the whole!!! it was such an accomplishment for me! im not trying to brag or anything so sorry if it sounds that way. sorry for the dark first part of the video - that is the one of me cantering for the first time and the second video (the lighter one) is of me yesterday. my legs actually aren't sore today (lol thank goodness!) but my butt is! hahah im learning to post in my next lesson so hopefully that will help with the sore butt problem :P! hahah but im gonna try to upload some photos on juan's page of my lesson so come by and check them out later if you can and don't forget to keep an eye out for my video, it's called, my lesson on juanita. im leavin a vote and sorry for the looong message! hahah hope you have a wonderful and warm week!

Hello, I know we have not met yet. I'm sending this message and asking if you would like to help my horse get HOTM for April, all you have to do is slide over and meet my Royal Mes(we call him Charlie) and leave him a vote, I left you one in return. We would really appreciate the help. Thanks in advance, talk soon, Donna Lee

Howdy! Terribly sorry we don't get on here much anymore. School is definitely busy plus three horses to work. Shorty is in her regular riding schedule, Trooper is pulling the harness again, and Tidy is doing a few bareback trail rides again. A friend of mine came over and she rode Shorty so I rode Tidy. We raced and Tidy won. I was pleasantly surprised. Talked to the vet and he said I know my own horse but she should be OK for light work. YAY! :)

Brass and Sierra
Your horses are beautiful. I love the name Brass. It sounds elegant. If Gracie and I ever get to ride a dressage test, I am going to enter her as Polished Steel. I am trying to figure out how to add more photos but as I am pretty stumped by computers, it will take a while....I like your comments about your horses....work is NOT in Gracie's vocabulary either...lol. We hand out a lot together. I have found that just being with a horse and talking to them about anything really helps them bond. I like this site. I usually just log in and due the quizzes. They are so educational....lol.

Come visit me, Gracie.

Good Morning vote from Fancy and Frances♥
How are you today, did you have a nice weekend?

I would like to keep my Fancy shoe free, so I am considering purchasing hoof boots for Fancy. If anyone has any experience with these, please let me know about that. I would like to know about the ease of putting them on, if they come off easily in mud, how long they last, if they rub sores on the horses coronet or other area, did they have any effect on the hoof itself, do you think they are a good investment, and just any info you can share.
If you have anything to share or not I would like to personally thank you for giving me your attention and let you know I appreciate every friendly member I have met here. You are top notch horse lovers, the greatest!
Have a Beautiful Day, Be Blessed♥

Lately they've been putting me on the more difficult horses and ponies. Most of them have attitudes and have been either kicking out at people, or that hate the ring. So, I haven't rode Grey in like 2 months. Last weekend i rode Romeo on a trail then I took him in the ring because he hates the ring and is horrible in it!!! It was a huge challenge just getting him through the gate. He was a little beast!!! I don't think that will be able to ride Grey tomorrow either because of Valentine's day. We usually have a ton of people come out for trail rides. I think last year he went on 4!!! We were booked solid last year!!! Big Grey has been good though lately. He's starting to loose his winter coat so it takes a good hour and a half to througly groom him. By the time you're done the floor of the stall is covred in white hair!! LOL :D Can't wait to see him tommorrow!!! I love how he follows me around!! I walked out to the pastures the other day to look for a ring that someoneloat while throwing hay off the back of the truck. He saw me and came over and was following me around until I left. He is so adorable!!! :D Everyone else was so jelous that their horse wasn't following them around.
I hope that you have a Happy Valentine's Day!!! Thanks to everyone who helped Ferina get HOTM!!! :D

Hi, here's a vote from Fancy. We made it to the middle of this week without a day of school due to the snow. Maybe it will be warm enough today to clear more of the back roads. I sure would have loved to ride Fancy in the snow. Hopefully we will get the chance in years to come.
Please vote for HOTD: Masters horse#154980 and
Zippin the Dust horse #167617

Just daydreaming about riding this spring and thinking: I only have my little "Fancy" horse right now and I think I will really enjoy riding her this spring, but if you have access to more than one, please tell me which is your favorite to ride and why, if you are like me and only have one, I would like to know what you like most about that one.
Tuesday while I fed Fancy she stood at the gate and when I went to exit she tried to follow me. I knew it, she wants to go out with me,LOL. It was barely over 30 degrees so I promised her a better day. Fancy got her better day Wednesday! We have had such cold days Wednesday felt like spring and it was just in the 40's. I cleaned up, groomed her, went over some of our old lessons, which to my surprise she did right off, just like we never missed a day at doing them. Then her favorite, we went out. Fancy leaves you an 'it has been a Better day' vote!

Hi guys! I am SO sorry for both this c/p and the fact I was gone WAY longer than I had expected! I apologize! While I was gone, I got a few things for Christmas, my favorites being a new Wintec synthetic saddle, a neoprene breast collar, and a Canon EOS Rebel XS (professional camera)! What did you get? We're supposed to get covered up this weekend with snow! Hope they're right! Wow, Lightning's LAST DAY as HOTM is tomorrow! No matter, to me, he's always the horse of the month. =) Well I’ll keep it short! Here’s a vote! Talk to you soon!

Hi Sierra! Is the picture at the bottom a picture of the horse you rode? Yes I got lots of great presents, alot more than I deserved, hehe! I may use them for showing! I would love to get the matching pink set for Ferina, so both the horses will be looking spiffy! Haha. Well I hope you had a great Christmas!!
Sorry I wasn't on yesterday, my best friend that I hadn't seen in a while was over! And I will be gone Tuesday-Friday of next week, I am going on a ski trip with the church! I might be gone tomorrow too, to go try out all the new tack and stuff out on the horses! But whenever I get back, it will be time for me and Ferina to run for HOTM! We need all the support we can get, and I appreciate every vote!! Ferina has changed my life in so many ways, we have taught each other so much and I really think she deserves HOTM.

Lightning's snow days =D
Sorry I wasn't on yesterday, our internet was out! But we got TONS of snow! It's the biggest I've ever seen! He got 13 inches!!! Lightning LOVED it and he rolled and jumped and ran and bucked in it like there was no tomorrow! I got a lot of great pictures and videos! Even Sienna decided to run in the snow a little! I haven't seen her run without someone on her back since early summer! Fancy didn't RUN, but she trotted, and she liked playing in the snow too. We still have that snow... in fact, we got another inch last night and it has been flurrying all day. It was great. I will have more pictures up tonight. Here's a vote, talk to you soon!

Hi! What's been going on recently? I saw Lightning a little bit today. It was great! I went to see the horses, and here he came, galloping, right to me! I was so happy that he seems so eager to see me! Very good sign! He's such a good boy. Love him so much. Wow, it is getting SO close to Christmas! I can't believe it's come so quickly! I'm expecting a new SLR camera and a saddle, but I might get a couple other small stuff. I'll be sure to tell you. Oh and I want to know what you get too! So be sure to tell me if you don't care! =D Here's a vote, talk to you soon!

Hi Sierra!
Hey guys! So sorry about this c/p, but I have a good reason! =) Well, like Ferina's mom may have told you (Thanks Chandler!), my power went out yesterday (Wednesday) at about noon, so I was unable to get on! Sorry bout that, hope it doesn't happen again! It was just SO windy and rainy, trees fell over, and crushed the power lines. But they got that fixed a while ago earlier this evening. Anyway though, I finally got to see the horses since I didn't go to school yesterday (and won't go tomorrow)! Fancy seemed really intolerant of Lightning's mischief and even struck out at him with both hind feet! I have it recorded too! My poor baby boy! But other than that, we had an alright time together though i didn't ride because it was SOOOOO cold! I cannot wait to ride though! I'm gonna ride the next chance I get! Well here's a vote, talk to you soon!

Haha but it doesn't usually stop me either!
