My Previous Horses

My first very own pony was a little Miniture horse mare named Spice.

My next pony was a little shetland mare named Daisy. I don't remember riding her much, because soon after we got her she went too blind to ride, our other pony, my moms, used to show her to her food. We finally had to have her put down because she was getting to dangerous because of the blindness.

When I couldn't ride Daisy anymore, I stole my moms Class B Shetland or Shetland/Hackney. My mom said " you can't ride him, he is too much horse for you." But I said I will ride him, and determined me, did ride him. I loved him a lot. I out grew him though when I was around 5 or 6. I have a lot of interesting memories of him. He was a very hyper pony. One time I was riding him and he ran up a sand pile and slipped and I ended up sliding off, as I was bareback, then he slid and ended up standing on my hip. It hurt but believe it or not I got back on him and rode him again that day.

After him I had a QH/Hackney pony. I only had him for a few months so I don't remember much of him, except that he was was a bay, and pretty.

After him I got a Paint mare, barely 14.2 hands high. I loved her a lot. But I wasn't allowed to canter on her. However, she was good enough for me to take her out of the pasture and ride her in the fields near our house, which are now houses(YUCK). One time she got stung by a bee in the ear and just shook her head. But then another time she went crazy and started bucking and rearing and not even my mom could ride her, we ended up leading her home and I rode my moms horse Fire.

I never have really liked fire much, but I rode her before I had my first pony. I have taken her to a few shows and done excellent, getting High point and reserve high point every time, that I showed in enough classes. For some reason I have always found her to easy. Of coarse I do remember falling off her once. It was because a pan slid down a goat ramp with roofing material on it and it spooked her. I fell and hit the fence. But I though it was fun. I was very strange then, I was only like 5. And yes, we do still have fire. She is listed on the My Horses page, with more pictures.

During this time we also had a morgan gelding named Classical Jazz, I never her rode him, but I thought he was gorgeous.

At 8 I got my Morgan Mare given to me and we sold Jazz to have room for her. She was my horse for 10 years.

In 1994 I got a Thoroughbred. We bought her very green broke at 8 and been in 8 homes, been abused, with tons of problems. The owner said that I would never get clippers near her, she reared, she was afraid of whips, she knew pretty much nothing, etc. I rode her for a year and got her out of everything, she even learned to clip. then the rearing came back and she happend to get her front feet over a gate with me on her. This made my parents say this is enough. So we had to sell her. But if we hadn't bought her she probably would have gone for dog food. I saw her true potential and rescued her trained her and we sold her to an awesome Dressage home. The owner wouldn't sell her for the world. I miss her a lot though. She taught me so much in that year.

Alibi is a 6-7 year old Thoroughbred Mare, who I got in Apirl of 1998 and just sold in Spring of 1999.

Alibi is a 6-7 year old 15.3 hand Thoroughbred Mare, who I got in Apirl of 1998 and just sold in Spring of 1999. She is a bright bay, with two hind pasterns and a star. I got her from a big hunter/jumper stable. Since I got her I have done a little bit of everything with her. This summer I took her to Idaho with me and we did a lot of Dressage work. This really helped her jumping a lot, now she responds to the seat and legs and will collect before a jump. We also went on Canal rides with her. She was awesome. To get to the canal, we had to ride down a road, where cars just wizzed by, some even honked, just to be idiots. She was very sane about it. On the canal there were many things that scared the other horses that were with us, she had to lead, because she was the only one that would walk past some of the pumps, and things that made noises. I have also enjoyed messing around with riding her western. I have also worked with some showmanship. After only one lesson she could pivot and walk and stop, without a lead. This takes many horses much longer to learn. I haven't shown her any since I have had her, because i have always had my QH, though I think that sometimes she would do much better than the QH. As she has a much better mind and is twice as calm. She was shown one time before I got her and she came home with firsts in both her classes. I also saw her the first time out after having her baby, with only 3 rides after not riding 2 years, she went and rode around at the warm-ups at a show. She was a pro, like she had been around the activity all her life. That day I was riding an older TB who was more keyed up than her.

This is a picture of me riding Ali, Dressage, in Idaho.
