the new pony before our first ride =)

excuse the mud.. silly girl was filthy and covered! She needs a bath but it's still too chilly for that!






A few snapshots before my first ride.. she's 3 yrs old and hadn't been ridden yet this year (with the exception of the couple minutes the old owner jumped on her bareback to show me that she was at least somewhat broke)

Had to go change to a shorter girth after I took these pics, couldn't get my saddle tight enough

She did good.. stood still while I mounted even though it took me a couple tries because the saddle wanted to roll. She was very quiet, walked around the round pen and was neck reining some and responding to verbal cues by the end of the ride

Sounds like a good girl! The best of luck with her. She looks like she'll be a solid horse when she grows up.

Pretty girl, despite the mud!

Can't help but notice her halter looks like it has been too tight over her nose. Maybe it just looks worse because of the winter woolies, I dunno.

I like my steel curries for that nasty mud that gets on them...and I'm a freak about them being clean too...Lol!

At any rate, what a cute little horse! She looks like she is going to make a decent little riding horse.

I thought the same thing. I would just let it out some until her winter fur is gone. She is cute though. Gizmo is the same color and lime green is out color. How is that pad? I was kinda looking at it but didn't know how the little bubblies were on it. It has some good reviews and some bad reviews.
