Well when I first became eligible for the Junior class I started the first season on Jester and literally came dead last in every race (Except keyhole, we were good at keyhole). So I borrowed a horse named Tey-Kiro who was my trainer's horse. She was nuts. I finished the season out on her and then gave her back, I couldn't stand her but we did fairly well. I then took on a horse named Jasper for the next season. He was sweet but he was a lease, at the end of the season I had to give him back. So instead I ran the young horses my trainer was training (Since clients can pay to have their horses taken to shows and whatnot) while I also ran my older gelding named Rebel and my old mare Annie on the side. After that I settled on a horse named Bailey. I don't have Bailey anymore (She was also a lease) and I had her around for about 9 months of this year. We bought Ruger (Our 3yr old) as a project and he's coming along well and my "Finished" (Not really lol) horse now is Selena who I expect to keep me going til I graduate and have to leave her. She's a finished reiner/cowhorse but has only been on barrels a little bit. She's a little firecracker though, solid 4D at the moment, getting faster.
Haha, I feel so ridiculous reading that back to myself
Don't most people only ride one or two horses?
