2003-2004 (I have the least amount of pictures from our first two years. They were very rough! Precious would bolt, rear, duck out, etc with me and I was a very timid rider).
We looked awful together
2005: Things started to improve! I got a lot braver and started being able to figure her out
2006: This one when we finally really clicked!
She went from being my crazy psychopath pony to even being champion in a hunter division!
2007: I moved her to my best friends house and started doing some Natural Horsemanship with her, while still continuing training her on my own. This was the year I think we bonded the most :) I visited her every day, did lots of NH, and we really grew a lot together. This is when I literally began to trust Precious with my life, as you will see in the upcoming pics
2008: This was when I starting "growing up" and horses took a backseat for a little while to my boyfriend at the time, partying, other hobbies, etc. I still loved Precious but definitely did not ride as much as I had
