Smile Bonds between the horse and its rider :)

I don't own my own horse, but i'm making a huge commitment to make the money. So ANYWAY, i would love too see the amazing bonds between the horse and its rider (you and your horse) thanks, just post pictures or stories!

form an unbreakable bond, ride like a dream even if its reality, horses can become our best friends, so listen with your heart, and feel what the horse feels.

This is my Daughter and her pony Teddy. They have a bond like none I have ever seen. My daughter is almost 3 years old, and she got Teddy when she was 18 months old. Teddy had been past from child to child until he ended up as a pasture pet. The owners we getting rid of the mini that he was a companion for, so they needed to find him a new home. We went there expecting a naughty pony, but he ended up following my little girl all over the property... giving her kisses :) The owners were so happy to see him take to her that they gave him to us. They have been best friends ever since! I trust Teddy enough to leave my daughter alone with him, and she can lead him around, and even ride him by herself. I couldn't have aked for a better first horse for my daughter.

The day they met, he kept giving her kisses and she was laughing hysterically!






And them now

Their first ride


Third or fourth ride BY HERSELF :)

Sorry for posting so many, I just love sharing these two

This is my 7 year old daughter and her lesson horse. She's been riding him for almost 2 years, and for the past year she's been the only person riding him so everyone calls him "her" horse now.



and my favorite picture. It shows off the blue eyes on both of them.

This is my boy Denny. He was 4 years old when we got him and he had a history of severe abuse by "cowboys". I thought he was pretty and always wanted a bay horse so I decided one day that I wanted to ride him. I came home after school that day and got my saddle. I broke him to ride and have been riding him ever since. The owner didn't have the money to pay the training bill so she gave me the horse instead. That was a heck of a 16th birthday present. Forget the car, that was what I wanted. To this day, I am the only person who can successfully ride him.


This is my blm mustang Dobe. I bought him as a completely unhandled 3 year old stud. Brought him home on a Thursday and by Tuesday, I was riding him through cattle. He has been my main man for the last 5 years and I wouldn't trade him for all the money in the world.


And here is my baby Rafe. He is the first horse I have been around from day 1. He is the most entertaining little turd but I couldn't love him more. It has certainly been an experience watching him grow and teaching him what he needs to know. He is the sweetest little darling and the biggest s**t-head at the same time LOL.


This was my first "horse" Olen. I learned to ride on him and if it wasn't for him, I would not have been as prepared as I was for a full sized horse. I started riding him when I was 3 years old and we grew up together. He is still at the house; retired now. He and I will both be 26 years old in March.


And this is old Buck. He was my first full sized horse and he was the best partner a little girl could ask for. He was 16hh tall and an absolute horror for an adult to ride. But for a kid, he would do anything. He was the definition of bombproof, absolutely nothing scared him. He was incredibly forgiving when I pulled too hard on the reins or kicked too hard. If I fell off, he would just stop and wait until I climbed back up his side to get back on.
(that's me in front)

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/
