Pictures of Celeste

Celeste is a 21-year-old Hanoverian mare who has been at one of the barns where I ride for about 8 months now. She can actually be a bit high-strung; you would never guess that she is 21 years old! We have been working on developing her topline recently. She wasn't ridden for 10 years before my riding instructor bought her so she had a lot of relearning to do! She has been really great and is such a sweetheart. (There is also a picture of Ruby, the Quarter Horse mare I ride, and Raspberry, the POA gelding I learned to ride on )
...Celeste...

...Raspberry...

Sorry there are so many- my mom and dad took some new ones recently and I am just sooo proud of Celeste! She's amazing to ride, with a huge float-y trot and a super huge canter. She's really responsive, too- if you lean back even half an inch she'll slow down.

Great pictures. Ruby is just gorgeous!

Celeste is coming along so nicely, and don't get me started on Raspberry - too cute.

Celeste is gorgeous, once she fills out some I think she will be an absolute show stopper. Just by the pictures it's hard to believe that girl is 21.

I just love Ruby's color, is that strawberry roan? And as for Raspberry I don't belive "Aww" even sums it up.

Yeah, Ruby is a strawberry roan. Celeste's neck doesn't have much muscle or a topline right now because she wasn't ridden in such a long time, so we're working on that. It's a work in process :).

Those are some great photos! She is such a lovely mare, I love the shade of her bay and I LOVE her facial marking. A stunner!

Haha I'm bored so I'm posting more pictures of them :). The first two are of Raspberry and me about 5 or 6 years ago. (I hope they work)


Yeah I know I'm too big for him but this was taken just before I switched over to riding Ruby. That's how his mane usually looks- about three inches thick and almost 2 feet long!


Okay this is kind of turning out to be more photos of ALL of the horses, not just Celeste lol.
So here's Cashalle (sp?). He is a retired Anglo-Arab gelding- a total sweetheart.



Cashalle and Voltaire, a semi-retired (rarely ridden) Thoroughbred gelding. His racing name was Tommy Tom Tom. His favorite past-time is dunking his head in his water.

Beautiful horses, great pictures.

Why are the horses being ridden with side reins on?

I honestly have never asked. I apologize if this is a stupid question, but what negative effect does riding horses with side reins on have? I understand that they are usually used for lunging a horse with a rider or not, but do they have a negative effect on the horse if used when adjusted loosely and used when riding?
