    Oh, Nostalgia

    So, I haven't actually evented in about two years, due to my horse being injured and me heading off to college (=too poor to compete), but nonetheless I decided to go to the show photographer's website and look at all my old show pictures. It's fun, but a little sad at the same time, lol. Does anyone else do this a lot? I always thought it was fun to see how my riding changes from one show to the next.

    For example, spring 2008 was my last season competing, when I qualified for AECs, and these are the three different show pictures. I feel like my riding definitely changed a little bit each time.

    Lol thanks. Technically I guess he's a pinto, since as far as I know he's a mutt and not able to be registered, but regardless, I think he's lovely as well. Hopefully I'll be able to at least let him do some little jumping, but no more eventing for him, I think.

    Why? Why can't you guys event together anymore? Regardless of his breed - the joy about Eventers is that we pick our mounts solely on performance, not breed. If our horses have heart, soul and ability to the job at hand, then so be it :) The mount could be a mule, so long as they can take us where we want to go.

    Oh it's not because of his breed, lol. He's had one too many tendon injuries for me to feel comfortable eventing him anymore. He's had like 3 in about 3 years. Expensive and obviously telling me he's not fit for it anymore. I guess he's just prone to injury lol. I'll probably do mostly dressage with him now and some low level hunter/jumpers.

    And I wasn't, Stormy. I haven't been back to Texas since just after Christmas. I'm pretty much moved in at a house with two roommates in Colorado.

    Ohhh well that's a little far from Texas, isn't it? Lol! And I think it's good that you care so much about your horse that you give up the sport you love to keep them safe, happy, and healthy! Bravo!

    Lol I have plans to save up for a second horse, probably something around 3-4 that I can work up with.
