This little horse is my whole world. My everything and more.

I just sticked her today as 164cm, but I'm not sure how accurate that is. If correct, that makes her 16hh and a half inch. But she's VERY slender so despite her height she's not a lot of horse.


She is VERY green and I'm not a dressage rider [and am attempting to train a dressage horse] so please excuse our less than perfect work.

Awwwww, Blue Eyes, give yourself some credit! I think y'all look really good together. You are a very nice rider and she's definitely trying to listen. Very pretty chestnust and how can you not love a girl riding in her pink mud boots! ;) Love the video. They add so much more to a still picture.

Aww thanks :) We have a long way to go but we're getting there, it's just a big learning curve for me. I've had lazy, heavy-in-the-hand, mostly educated horses my whole life, and now I have this forward, sensitive, soft-mouthed little Thoroughbred that I broke myself.

And I love those boots, they're amazing! My riding boots are broken and my only other boots are those or a pair that have zips on the inside. I'd rather not risk scratching my saddle, and the saddle in the video wasn't mine [was trialling it, but it doesn't fit], so I didn't really have a choice either way. I look after other people's gear way better than my own!

Edit; she tends to look chunkier in photos/video than real life, to put it into perspective I'm only 5'4 - I do have long legs but I wouldn't have thought THAT long??

I just love Hot Zippin Chip, gorgeous!! I have always loved sorrel and chestnuts. They're all beautiful. I'm going to show off mine, as soon as I get her into better shape.

Yes!! Finally a thread about the reds! I'm that crazy horse girl.. stuck with sorrels, always. I will add my red heads to this later when I'm on my own computer!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

It's so funny how a horse herd can change colors on you. When I was a kid, we had nothing but sorrels and one lonely buckskin and I wanted nothing more than a dark bay horse. Well, I got him when I was a teenager and then, slowly but surely, we collected more and more bay/brown horses and our sorrels got old and died until we had nothing but bays in the pasture with an odd gray or buckskin thrown in, and now we're starting to get more sorrels again.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
