New here!

Hey all :)

Seems like a wealth of knowledge on this forum! Where I live is not a very horsey community, and I think I am pretty much it for drivers. I am excited to be joining this board, in hopes to further my driving education, seeing as though I do no have a mentor local to me.

So 4 years ago I bred my Appaloosa mare to an awesome western pleasure stallion in hopes of a stellar, colored foal that would be a sensible and energetic trail horse.

Fast forward to now, I have an amazing 3 year old (not colored.. lol) filly that is totally unflappable. And also 14 hh and petite. I am 5'8" and a bit fluffly, so me riding her just is not going to work out. She is 100% my heart horse, so I made up my mind to enjoy her and give her a job she can enjoy by driving her.

It is an adventure we both really look forward to everytime I head out with a halter. We're going at this alone, but so far so good. 2 days ago, she pulled a quad tire for the first time (I've got a cart but is isn't here yet), as she had not used the breastcollar yet. I've done all her training thus far, and.. not to brag or anything, but she is a pretty stellar horse. It helps that she has an incredible mind.

Anywho, if this forum is anything like the others I've been on.. I will be injured if I don't provide at least one photo!

So here she is:



(it was super hot outside this day, and all the mares were forced to eat their supper under the sprinkler!)

Super cute little girl you have there, 14hand equines are a really good size to pull a cart.

Nothing as peaceful as a drive down the road! I'm jealous! I used to have a Morgan we used to drive she has been gone for a couple years now but these pics bring back the memories!
