Type of Riding: English, Western, Jumping. ..almost anything!

My Horse's Achievements: She started out very green, She was my 9th B-day present who could barely trot without bucking everynow and took us a few years to help her trust humans again, get rid of her headshyness, and train her, teach her that trotting and cantering are good things she can do, and that she should not buck when doing them! She was a "rescued" horse so to speak... my mom did most of her training, and becuase of that they bonded and Sassy is now my Mom's horse!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: anything sweet. (or anything edible!)

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Trail rides, eat, arena work, jumping, bossing cows around, Follow her mama! (she might even walk into the house if she was asked to!)Getting groomed.

Pet Peeves: Short ponies(no offense to any ponies out there!). Blue tarps on the ground that she is supposed to walk over. Things that try to sneak up on her! (she is partially blind in her left Eye.)She HATES grasshoppers!

My Horse's motto: "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...."

How We Met

Sassy was my 9th B-day present but she had quite a few bugs...she only knew how to walk and trot, and by most peoples definitions, she was NOT a very broke horse, much less a kids horse. She was very green, and didnt know how to load, be led properly, or respond to cues. I used her for 4-H one year, and started using a different horse the next year, so my mom started over Sassy's training... she used parelli to calm Sassy down, and help her understand humans are good. becuase of Parelli, and the 1 1/2+ years of ground work a dedication from my mom, she will now do just about anything she is asked to do without any problems.. (even walk over that darned blue tarp!) Sassy is now my mom's horse instead of mine...but I still love her. :) Now she lives with my horse, Keslo, and Aubrey, my sisters horse...Her best buddies!.

****Up Date on Gold Metal****Stopped by the farm and took a couple new pictures(stop by and take a peek. Looks like the tenant are moving out. All his animals are gone. So this is good for Gold Metal and his family. They will now have there 20 acres back for pasture. Time to put weight back on. They have received help, and are being watched closely.
Leaving a vote... Lisa, Cookie & Gold Metal : )

Hey pretty girl!!! :)
Dear Pony
This right, bright pony
Eyes wild, coat tawny
Outwitting people is his game
Disaster is his proper name
Kicks the groom who brings him hay
Breaks his rope and wheels away
Jumps the fence, won't come to me
Avoids all capture skillfully
Ears back, expression mean
Stubbornness I've ever seen
And if he's caught he's not contrite
Turn your back and he will bite
When I saddle him, why then
Kicks my stirrup, bites again
And always bucks on mornings cool
Dumps me so I look a fool
But he, upon the roughest trail
Is skilled where other horses fail
Over Fences, leaping logs
Past the meanest baking dogs
Through the thick and tangled wood
Crossing rivers’ widest ford
Along thin Ridges skillfully
Dodging chuckholes carefully
Then he’s safe and sure and right
Every challenge, his delight
I want no other, meeker made
Not for any price would trade
Crazy mane and swinging rear
Sassy, spoiled and very dear
Eyes sharp, coat tawny
He’s my right, bright pony!
