My daughter is trying out a new horse...

She was supposed to start next week, but this week is camp, and they needed her usual lesson horse for a much less experienced rider, so she was asked this weekend if she'd try the switch this week. We will likely be leasing this hunk for 4-H next year. He's absolutely incredible...he knows it all, and has the most amazing stops in the world. I ride him also, and his jog reminds me of a glider rocking chair, there is NO bounce in him at all! He's a perfect 4-H horse because he's been trained to the hilt for WP, with a smidge of reining worked in (hence his stops). He is 15.2 hands, 11 years old and she is 4'7" and 8 years old. He usually gives his new riders a little attitude, but for some reason he hasn't done that to her.

I'm proud of my little girl...she's the youngest of 10 girls in her camp, but is hands down the most advanced. She was trying to "park" him today on the rail and decided that the backing and going forward was not working so she side passed him into line. The look on her face was so awesome, and of course the camera was down! It was the ultimate holy crap look.

Here's my baby and her new hunk.

Hands down my favorite. It looks like they're up on some mountain top. It was a beautiful day for pictures, and this farm is hands down one of the most photogenic places I've ever been, and her horses aren't too bad either!

I didn't realize how much of a hunk he was until I wasn't in the saddle. His gates are just awesome. I told her that she'll stand out in the sea of bays that are always in 4-H shows here, so the judges will notice everything thing she does, good and bad. He's very flashy.

The horse is gorgeous and your daughter looks great on him
