Aaaahh....yes. Horses. My first love. I think I was born with horses in my blood.

Love your Morgans Crazy4fish. Do you guys breed them and show them?

crazy4fish 02-01-2008 07:04 AM

yah we do. we bred shila tessy and trinny on our farm and we have bred portia who is do in april. i show my horse Happy and we also show Midnight, sometimes Portia, and we show Tess, Trinny and Shila in-hand. we used to show splendor but then we bred her 3 years in a row and now she is kinda out of shape. lol! we just got George last year and we are still working with him. he is gonna be our breeding stallion! did you ever show horses? 8)

Yes, just at the local shows...nothing big. My sisters and I would enter equitation classes, pleasure classes, some jumping and I even entered my pony (the Welsh/Hackney) into a halter class. She had beautiful confirmation. We also used to go to gymkanas alot, I still have my box full of ribbons up in the closet lol!

We had a thoroughbred mare which we bred and had the colt trained for the racetrack. He ran one race. But we retired him because he bowed a tendon. My oldest sister ended up taking him with her to Oregon when she went to college. She worked with him and did 3 day eventing with him...stadium jumping, dressage and cross country.

But alas, once I moved away from home, got married and had a family I didn't have the money (or time!) to keep horses anymore. One of my sisters still has a horse and the oldest one teaches riding lessons occasionally.

im not into anything major either. i do a mix of pleasure and equitation classes. i ride hunterseat but really want to ride western. i love trail riding too. so does my horse. i dont really do jumping except little ones for fun. i like briding bareback as well. when you rode did you ride western, saddleseat, or hunterseat?

My mom was a horsewoman (she and her sister used to ride their horses to school in Montana!) and she has us girls in a saddle as soon as we could hold ourselves up in the seat LOL. We took both English and Western riding lessons. We showed mostly English but when we went on trail rides (which is mainly what we did) we rode Western because it was more comfortable for long rides and we could pack saddlebags with lunches and drinks, etc. We used to ride all day on the trails. Such fun!

we ride in western saddles sometimes but none of our horses are neck reined. i am working on it with midnight and she started to get the hang of it. your mom was so lucky!!!!! i wish i could ride my horse to get places in stead of driving. when i go on trail rides they usually dont last all day(a few hours) cause there are only a few trails near my house.

hay guys.......
any pictures of your horses ?
i have only tried horse riding twice,to be honest they scare the
pants off me,but i think they're beautiful.

Hmmm. None on the digital camera. I'll have to try scanning some.

If you look on the Dogs thread Crazy4fish has some beautiful pics of her Morgans. Then we decided we better start our own horse thread! lol
