Mack and Zippo! (pics)

Those of you who have seen my posts in the past probably know that I used to ride this horse Dakota in lessons. Well, I have now officially "moved up" to Mack and Zippo! I'm switching off riding both of them, every other week. I thought it would be cool to show you them and tell you a bit about them.

This is Mack. He is an OTTB, raced for about 10 years I think. He's got really springy strides and a big powerful jump. He's a blast to ride, even though sometimes he gets strong when we canter.

This is Zippo. He's only 6 and pretty new to jumping. He has a really quiet, smooth, almost westernish trot and canter. But when you jump him, he absolutely flies. He likes to put his head down and pull pull pull to the jumps, and then just bolt over them or through them, whichever seems more convenient at the time. XD Still, he's really sweet. He seems like he means well, he just gets really excited!

I think between Mack and Zippo I'm going to get a lot stronger! I love riding different horses, so this is really fun for me. I'll miss Dakota but it's nice to have two fresh new challenges.

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

I love riding new horses too! It really gives you a chance to improve on things and get to know the different quirks of them. Love the pics. They're really cute boys
