How We Met

Then there came a time when the horse that I was riding was sold. I thought that was the worst thing that had ever happened but little did I know that was just the beginning. I started to ride one of the barn owner’s horses, a twenty-two year old gelding. Over the next few months while I was out brushing Rocky my mom and the owner of the barn got to know each other really well and the owner began to like me more and more, since her daughters didn’t ride anymore.
The gelding I was riding had some previous leg and knee problems but they came back when we pulled him out of retirement. On a cold day in March I needed to get off him early during my lesson and the owner felt bad that we had to end the lesson early so she offered to let me finish up my lesson on Rocky by taking him on a short trail ride. For a minute I thought that she was kidding. Next thing I know I found myself saddling up Rocky with a loose girth and hosting myself up. After three years I had ridden a lot of different horses but after this one ride I knew that I had found my place on Earth.

Your horse is GORGIOUS! Come and see Guusje, a fantastic, beautiful Fjord stallion who excells at dressage! He is one of my FAVORITE horses in the whole wide world! I'd LOVE for him to get Horse of the Day so if you could vote for him I'll return the favor! Also, if you find anything on his profile that seems confusing or you'd like to see changed, please blog me! I am continually searching for more information on this wonderful horse and I will be updating his profile with more pics and information frequently! Thanks so much!
