About Me

Active within 2274 Days

I am from DeLand, FL and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 4 months and 25 days

Nicknames: Zoomer

Age: 17 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: 15.2

Color: Flea-bitten Gray

Type of Riding: English, Western, Hunter Jumper

My Horse's Achievements: What I am most proud of with Zoomer is the patience and understanding she has with my daughter. Zoomer is well trained and was use to adults most of her life, so when we got her, Madison was only 8 and it took some time for Madison to understand how to "talk" to Zoomer. But Zoomer never let her down and sometimes did things before Madison could "ask". Zoomer is a smart horse and takes great care of Madison.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: apples and carrots

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Jumping, grazing

Pet Peeves: Other horses, or maybe I should say riders, cutting her off in the ring.

How We Met

I have always loved horses growing up but never persued them. When my daughter was real young we would take her to a horse ranch that had a resturant and walked around looking at the horses, she was fearless and would climb under the fences to "pet the horsey", I knew at 2, she would do something with horses. At 5, she wanted to start horse lessons, we waited until she was 6 1/2 and she was showing by 7. She is a natural and has so much confidence and has no fear when she gets on a horse. Once she started talking about going to the Olympics as a show jumper, we knew we had to get our own horse. After months of looking online we found Zoomer. Zoomer's owner at the time was wonderful, patient and answered every question that I asked her. I knew in my gut that this was the horse, without even seeing her. So we made the 3 1/2 drive to see Zoomer and it was love at first site with my daughter and me. Within a couple of months we brought her up to us, we were finally horse owners. Zoomer is like a mom to Madison, she takes such good care of her and is very understanding toward Madison. Zoomer is well trained in serveral disciplines, so that was very important to us and because Madison wanted to try out different things. She started learning western shortly after getting Zoomer and the two of them together do great. Even though I don't ride Zoomer at shows, I love going on trail rides with her or just even grooming her by myself, horses give you a calming affect that makes your day. I have always had dogs who would follow you around or bark and wag their tail when you came around, but there is something different when a 1,000lb animal neighs at your site and follows you around trying to find where you hid the carrots, or puts their head on you shoulder and falls asleep. I am proud of my daughter and of Zoomer, owning Zoomer has been the best experience and can't wait to enjoy more with them..

Update
Well the vet came out today and checked Zoomer. We didn't get to see as much as we wanted to see with the baby today, probably being a little shy, but we got to see the cord and part of the sack. He will be out next month to check her again and give some shots. Zoomer has been great, gave her a much needed bath, which I know she enjoyed with the heat. Will get back next month.

Update
It's been a busy summer so far. Zoomer is doing great, she was a lot better at the last two shows we went to in June, didn't push her to hard with the heat. Taking some time off during the summer from traveling. With the rain and hot summer afternoons, it's been horrible. Wish there was more to say, but things have been busy. Will post more later.

GREAT NEWS
I've been pretty busy and haven't been on for a while but we got some great news this week, Zoomer is pregnant! We are so happy. We figured something at the last show when Zoomer didn't want other horses even near her, hormones out of wack, haha. But that's ok, she has an excuse. Will keep a monthly updates with pictures, also going to try to figure out the foal alert stuff and get that up, not the best with computers but will figure it out.
