RIP Apachy Jack

I would like to share a story of my man apachy jack. he was my first horse i got him when he was a year and a half and i was 11. he was the best and worse horse i could have asked for he pressed his luck and made me the rider i am today. unfortunately last may (2010) he suddenly got sick and passed away from liver failure which was shocking as he would only 9. i have never been more devistated then that night. i dont think ill ever forget it. he is missed everyday and could never be replaced.

missing you apachy see you someday in the field of green.



R.I.P my handsome man

He looks like fun on four legs. But I know you also have a new horse that is a beauty, not a replacement , but still a dream in the making.

It was probably the hardest thing I have ever experienced in my entire life. its just amazing how attached you get. the hardest part was not only was he my first horse but i also got him when he was a year so i did everything with him. I dont believe that giving up riding would have gave the honour to him that he deserved. he would have be P*SSED right off if i just gave up after he fought soo hard.

my two new horses (just bought another last week) will never replace him but i couldnt honestly imagine my life without having horses in it. the way i look at it is he wouldnt have wanted me to give up.
