my pictures will be posted in the following order 12, 32, 44, and 51. Here's my sentences for 51. Lakota is the best horse because he's just like me. We're both stubborn and sometimes I literally have to push his "reset" button so we can finish our work. He's got a huge personality and everyone is just drawn to him. He's flashy but he has a even better personality and my friend can be petting him while I'm gromming him and he'll turn his head so it touches me and just rest it there. We're both learning how to trust each other and even though we have some bad days, we work through them together and I still love him at the end of the day.

Can we put two different horses under one category? Say 2 different mares under Mare? Sorry if you already covered that

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

I'd prefer 1 horse per class, but you are allowed to enter 2 pictures per class, so if you wanted to enter one picture of each, that would be fine.

2. Paint Horse- Grumpy



12. Gelding- Kokomo


18. Best Turned Out English Horse- Grumpy

^ No poop stains! I was so proud of him for staying clean.


34. Coolest Horse in a Pasture Picture- Grumpy


36. Best Horse in a barn/stall Picture


43. Best Horse buddies Picture (ONLY 2 horses in the photo)- Grumpy and Kokomo


44. Best Horse Herd Buddies (MORE than 2 horses)- from left to right, Angel, Kokomo, Grumpy


50. Best Favorite Picture (Why is this your favorite picture?)

This is my favorite picture because it shows how far we've come. When I first started riding Grumpy, he would trot around at top speed with his head up in the air like a short-strided giraffe and would buck into the canter. He now accepts the bit and extends his stride and has wonderful trot-canter transitions. He's made a complete turnaround, and I am so happy that I found him, because he's such a fantastic horse.

51. Best Favorite Horse (Why is this your favorite horse?)

This is Hank, and while he and Grumpy tie for #1 in my book, I felt that I should include him here because of all he taught me. Hank is a 30-year-old therapy horse at a barn where I do volunteer work. When I first started volunteering, I knew nothing about horses. Hank taught me to always be paying attention to any horse that I'm around, how to lead, how to ride every stride, and how to gain respect from a horse. Other people have trouble leading him and picking up his hooves, but he'll do whatever I ask with little fuss.

52. Best Show Picture (What did you place in the class pictured and why is this your best show picture?)

This was Grumpy's third show, and his first time cantering and jumping in a show. This show was an Open Fun show to benefit the therapeutic riding program that I volunteer for, and the class was W/T/C English Pleasure. We placed 2nd out of 8. I picked this picture because this was our first 2nd place, and it reminds me of all the hard work I put into this horse and how much it paid off.

I decided I wanted to do a picture for 45. Cutest Dog and 46. Cutest Cat. The dog is Jessie(RIP)Golden Retreiver/Black Lab and the Siamese kitty is Henry, the black/orange/white kitty is Snickers.

This is my fav pic, because it was right after our first showjumping show. Buzz had done his all and we had gone a clear round in our first class, but second time around he wasn't fast enough, he gave it his all though.
I think this photo demestrates our bond :)
