The first horse I leased was a FAT quarter horse gelding named Star. I only rode him bareback in a halter. We galloped, jumped, trail rode, barrel raced, everything! Bareback and for fun of course. He was a great first horse and I see him every day since he's my neighbor's horse. I love him and If I could afford two horses would buy him and keep him forever. He was 16 when I leased him and it 18 now. We're the same age. :]

Free jumping.

Riding down the street.

Looking pretty and fat, ha ha.


I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

My first horse, Sunbeam. Got him in 6th grade as a Christmas gift. Sadly, I only had him six months because he broke his leg in his halter and we had to put him down.

The first picture is of me my grandfather and uncle! My grandpa used to work at the community pasture, so I got to ride on the odd occasion, but not near as much as I wanted to! Left to right Toby, Rebel, and Appy (Technically my first horses)

My grandfather gave my mom Lacy as a wedding present (Word from the wise, don't give a cityslicker a Here's her and her mommy Appy.


I took Lacy on to be my first project. I worked with her daily and loved to lead her over log jumps and lay on her stomach. But my family told me horror stories about when my Aunty tried to ride her, so I never got the courage up to ride her:(


And then my pride and joy came along... Callie. We were closer that two peas in a pod.


She sure roaned out after the first few summers!

I bought my first horse after 8 years of saving and riding, at the age of 14. He was a green broke 4 yo Arabian who taught me a lot about riding, training, and how to fall ;) I sold him two years after I bought him because I couldn't pay for college, work full time, and have time or money for a 6 yo Arabian. I sold him to a family who had a 12 yo girl who to this day does Pony Club with him :)

Wow well i read every ones stories and all your first horses where young and pretty. I want 16 when i got my first horse. His name is Sydney and he was a gift my sister i got him around my birthday so i have always considered him a birthday gift from her. He was 26 when i got him and may i say the best behaved horse undersaddle i ever rode and you could pretty much do anything to him. after a year and a half i really needed more of a challenge so i gave him away and got my girl juneau who i will never get rid. I really wish i still had my Sydney but he was getting so old and could keep weight on him so i had to give him up. I miss my man The 2nd pic is my sister and sydney and the bottom two are me and sid..
