Amber was a big, buckskin mare, probably QH. Started on her when I was 3, have pictures of me on her, no helmet, barefoot!! She would only walk with me. When I would try to get her to go faster, she would stop and hump her back a little to put me in my place and then continue on....... Next was a flea-bitten grey Arab mare who had been a broodmare, huge tummy but still gorgeous :) After that I got a cute buckskin pony of some sort who taught me how to fly! That boy could turn on a dime, rode bareback, got really good at hanging on until I got better at stopping him. His name was Rocket and it suited him! Still have scars but learned a lot from that pony!
