Bella and I :D

Took Bella out again because it was such a nice day. I've been working with her a couple of days a week on her turning & she is improving.
Just thought i'd share some pictures of us riding english today (finally had someone around to take pictures!)

Getting ready...

Indigosblue, she's 14 hh though she looks bigger when there's nobody standing beside her because of her size

yeah, she does look taller than that, although i wouldn't put her in the horse-sized category. Is she a slow or fast mover? I used to own a QH-Fjord cross that was a super fast mover...lol... she was 14'3...so sorta a horse =P

Well it's funny because Fjords are technically a pony breed (they very rarely grow over 14.2hh), but since they've grown in popularity over the past several years & because of their body mass the registries have started declaring them horses. I still call them ponies, though. They have the same basic look & personality (stubborn, gluttonous and can practically live off of dirt!) They also have a very rough trot & aren't typically fond of running.
Fjord's i've found are infact quite slow runners, though if you can get them motivated they try hard & give their all. I love them

lol, i guess my gal inherited some QH movement then, cuz she was faster than any 16h horse at our barn! She had the most wonderful gaits that were full of action, so i guess that wasn't normal... she was rather round though....I have to agree on the pony thing though, their whole conformation and temperament is pony-like. They can carry adult riders though, which is why i figure people call them horses. i miss my girl so much =[ o well, just enjoy your wonderful pony =]
