About Me

Active within 3056 Days

I am from Halfway, OR and I've been a Club Horse member for 10 years, 5 months and 19 days

Nicknames: Pretty Gurl, my best girl, grumpy, beautiful

Age: 32 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Arabian

Height: 14 or so hds.

Color: a flea-bitten, cream coat; dainty but strong legs, thick flowy mane, and understanding eyes

Type of Riding: barrel racing, pole bending, western and english showing, trail riding, and relaxing me-and -her bareback rides

My Horse's Achievements: Cricket has won me two belt buckles and over $200 just this year. she has helped me trainabout three young horses. she keeps all of our current horses in line and well behaved. once whil running the poles at full speed cricket slipped on a sharp turn. she fell and almost instantly got up and nudged my shoulder, making sure i was ok. she looks out for me every step we take and i love her to death for it.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: carrot tops, molasses, love

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: relax, sun bathe, run her heart out, keep everybody in line, and snuggle on certain occasions

Pet Peeves: annoying youngins, late feedings, people who hold her back, and long days competing, and horses who think they are better than her.

My Horse's motto: life moves fast... so, gosh darnit, keep up with it!

How We Met

poor cricket. she went through too many people who didn't love her. she was used for pack trips; hard mountain rides with much too heavy of guys; cranky, old ladys who didn't appreciate her and didn't ride; and then us. i was about 1 when we got her. first she was only ours on lease. we fed her, boarded her, excercised her and loved her. finally after about three years the old lady sold her to us. i live in a town of about 200 so riding was pretty casual. i would take cricket down to our fair grounds and train her. i was probably about 4. well now i ride her all over. she has won me shows, rodeos, and priceless memories. she is an old stubborn, tough, mare that has left hoof prints through my heart.

A Vote and A Note from Shybang
Hi there Cricket !! Sounds like you have quite a story to tell- Sure am happy you are loved, cared for and cherished now. Thanks for the note and the vote. Check out the book my mom wrote. She uses me as the main horse character and I am on the cover of the book too. It is called Shabang's Story. It is about a young woman and her beloved horse and the journey that their lives travel when the horse is stolen. It is told in the horses view as well as the peoples view. I think you will like it. It is available on and on Let us know if you get a copy and read it - would be interested in what you think about it. Have a great Memorial Day !!!!!! Thank God for our troops! Love Shybang
