How We Met

My trainer bought him as a weanling and raised him. She trained him herself and two years ago i had to put my horse down due to very serious colic. I took lessons on her lesson horses until she started letting me ride Griffin. I absolutely fell in love with him!! At the time he only did jumping. But i bought him and trained him to be the fabulous 3 day eventer he is today!!.

Leaving a snowy Tue vote from UT. I noticed that Pixie's mane is starting to grow in black. Now it has red and flaxen tips with black roots! It will be interesting this spring to see what color she turn out to be. Her front legs are a blondish color?? Have a great day. Voted for Daisy too

Here's a vote from Fancy and Frances. It was very pretty here yesterday. I was going to get Fancy out and came upon a fox in her hay which is right next to her stall. I ran it away and it came right back when i turned around. Soooo i just fed my darling Fancy and went back into the house :(

Happy TGIF! I am so glad it is Friday. We should get a chance to ride a bit this weekend I hope. Everything is starting to melt and turn the pasture into a big pond. This morning Pixie wasn't too sure about swimming to breakfast :) If you have a chance look at the bottom pic's on Betsy's page. There is a mare and a mule baby very unusual colors. Hope you have a great weekend...

Fancy stopping by with a vote, hoping you are having a pleasant and peaceful night. Fancy is the second horse that i have trained. I am in the process of training her. I raised a paint from birth and i trained him. I rode him until I learned he was having great pain in his front legs from a birth defect that i had treated when he was 1 month old. That is when i got Bishop and he was lame in the rear then i got Fancy.

A little i've already taught him most of his ground manners but a friend of the family's has offered to train him and she's a professional trainer. I don't want to teach him something wrong or something like that. I don't think I know enough to take on that challenge! The main reason I got him is that I couldn't bare to not see him again when his owners put him up forsale me and him had always been friends! He's such a good boy though and will learn fast plus I get to help with the training. I can't wait I get to spend 2 months during the summer at a real stable with him! I know it may sound weird but it's very rare I get to go inside a stable especialy with my own horse! Well anyhow, here's a vote!

Leaving a vote...We have 3 horses and Betsy the mule. I thought Dancer would be our last little one, but then along came Pixie. At first we were going to foster her until she could be adopted but after the first day I went...she's staying hehe

Sorry for the C/P however I wanted to let all my animal friends know the animal rescue site is giving $100,000.00 in grants for rescue shelters. You go on the website and vote for your favorite shelter. I'm voting for Hope for Horses rescue in Blue Ridge TX. You can vote for who ever you like. They give a $1000.00 grant each week and at the end it's about 20,000.00 for the winner. It is free to vote daily till the contest is over.

Is the location of the last photo below at the center where you ride? That is beautiful!!! Sounds like you have great trails to ride. We ride all year when the weather is permitting. I can't ride until spring because Fancy is only 1 yr old. She wil be 2 this spring and the vet said she should be fine for me to start training to carry weight this spring and I can ride her for like 3 hours and as she gets older work our way up. Hope you have lots of great rides on that trail this spring and summer on your lovely horse. Have a great day!

Wow he is handsome. I admire you that jump! Yes we will train Pixie. We raised Dancer as well. My daughter and I did a lot of the ground work then Trevor (her boyfriend) started riding her. She will go out on the trail when it isn't so icy. Thanks for stopping by and voting. We left you one as well. Great pictures at the bottom

Fancy Welcomes YOU to HorseChannel!!!
Fancy is here with a vote for you. Stay warm and have a pleasant day. Just one more month of the cold cold weather. Then we can get out, love our horses, and ride. Yippeee! I love riding at Morrow Mtn State Park here in NC, the trails are nice and the scenery is lovely. I can imagine the first time I ride Fancy there! Please, tell me about your favorite place to ride, and do you plan to ride there this spring?

No,I but I was going to another riding place at some Ranch but the lady was very weird because I she would put me on intermediate horses and she would put me about 14 other horses in a arena and just say "Your Lucy You Haven't Gotten Bucked on Your Second Lesson"

So my mom said I couldn't go their any more.
Than about 3 months ago our friend had a arab mare and I was at her house and I tried riding her (I Have only done 2 horse lessons) and she trusted me so much that when I got on her she just listened so well,and one day that she came to my house to ride she would kick at my room window so I can ride her.

but I would love to learn how to ride English!!!
