    I started on the usual bunch of English riding school ponies, Shetland x Welsh x spawn of Satan. Once I'd stopped falling off of crying on them then I progressed to the standard school horses in my area, OTTB's. It's a wonder I ever survived and continued to ride, I was in my late teens before I discovered 'sensible' (read actually trained) horses

    I started out riding QH, and Appendix QH. Rode them for a long time until I discovered Arabians.

    I started out on a QH and Appendix QH, my first trail ride was on a TWH. After that though I've been on everything and anything including Haflingers, OTTB, Arabs, a Freisian cross, Standardbreds, and a Curly gelding. Now I've bought my own horse and chose the breed that I like best which would be quarter horses.

    I started on my neighbors shetlands. Didn't care if they were grumpy. Never had a horse of my own til I was 19. That was my QH mare out of Conclusive bloodlines. She was my best friend. Now its arabs and my QH filly.

    A little grade pony mare named Reba. Although I didn't really stick with her, I got switched around on various horses. I remember a Palomino QH named Sunflower. But the two horses that "really" taught me were Kracker, a chestnut QH and Freedom, a fleabitten gray Egyptian Arbaian. What business I had as a small child riding a highly spirited and fast horse like Freedom, probably none. But I experienced my first fall with him, my first canter, and learned not to take rude crap from horses.

    This guy wasn't the first horse I ever "rode" but he was the horse I started to really learn on. He was a registered Norwegian Fjord named Shiner (not sure what his reg. Name was). He was (and still is) one of my friend's parent's horses. He's a bit pig-headed but great to learn on. Nothing spooks this guy & he's so nice to ride bareback because of all the fat!

    A TWH named Flame, just put her down in August. I'd been riding her for several years before I started riding lessons. The first lesson horse was Asha, a little white pony, looked Welshish. He was put down not long after lessons and I graduated to Norma Jean another grey pony for a little while. Apparently I did pretty well because they put me on Simon a small spooky Arab that no one else wanted to ride. We did pretty well together and he taught me a lot. After Simon was Max a little green broke black Quarab. At home I had graduated to riding the other TWHers Red and Sin.

    I started on a retired barrel horse named Lady <3 loved that mare to death and she taught me soooo much. Really knew her job was to take care of the little ones (like me xD)

    The first pony I ever took lessons on was a 36 year old leopard appy named Henry. He was definitely a babysitter, and when I got grumpy when my cousin rode a prettier pony my dad was quick to point out nobody had to lead Henry and I around the ring :) He lived to be 42.. and still grumpy from what I heard

    I rode the most sluggish thoroughbred I've ever seen! Haha then I moved on to a stubborn arab and now I'm on an AMAZING quarter horse (even though I'm not pure beginner anymore I desided that I'd say that lol)
