How We Met

Me & mom moved to a rural area from the city so I could have my horse closer to me. I had a 11yr old TB mare at the time but I really wanted a paint & Jewels needed a buddy to be with. We hurd about D (who was then named Oreo) and decided to go see him. I feel in love, When I test rode him he liked to crow hop and just pull little stunts but I knew that was nothing that couldn't be changed. He didn't know his leads, couldn't collect, but was very interested in what I had to teach him. I re-trained him into english to see how he would do, He kept getting better and better. At his first show he won the daily high point! thats when I knew we would be a perfect team! I hadn't had a trainer in about 3yrs so I thought if I went with a trainer again we could get better and better. (I have been riding for now 15 years) We went to this bigish time hunter/jumper trainer, when we got there she HATED me & my horse. She told me to burn my saddle because it was usless, I could put D in training with her but "He'll never be worth much" and I'm going to have a hard time learning to ride so late in life. Needless to say I've never gone back to her and she inspired me & D to prove her wrong. I believe we've done that and will continue to do that! We are a member of CSHA and we are competeing in a 5 show silverbuckle series where we will go onto state (we hope! :D). I want that woman who said we couldn't do it to see us now. I hope me and D can inspire other people not to doubt themselfs or give up on their horse. I believe we are living proof that you can do ANYTHING if you really want it!!


UPDATE: DARTANION & I CAME IN 4TH OUT OF 106 OTHER RIDERS AT STATE SHOW OF CHAMPIONS! WE WERE ONE OF 6 PAINTS THERE!! THE ONLY JUMPING PAINT TOO

It's cool that you sure did prove that trainer wrong! I think a horse works the hardest for the person they love, and it sounds like D did that for you! Here's a vote!
