I don't believe I've introduced myself on the forum yet, so for those of you who don't know me, My name is Alex! Im a freshman in college and I have one horse! His name is Benny! He's 3 and will be turning 4 towards the end of May! I have had him since he was 8 months old. My mom surprised me with him right after I had to put down my first horse QT. Benny is my absolute world and I don't know what I would do without that boy.
So I have been working with Benny since he was about 2. I havent started riding him until this past fall. And when I did start this past fall all I did was bareback. I have some videos from a week ago.. and this is under saddle. He has been under saddle for only about a month! :] I am VERY proud of his progress recently! He's been coming around VERY nicely. I wanted to use him as a western pleasure and english pleasure horse. He's about 15.1 or 2 hands, I havent really measured him in awhile! Oh! And I forgot to tell everybody he's a Quarter Horse/Paint! And Has papers to register.. I just have been too lazy to do it! Hah ill start out with his Picture! :]]]
This is from this past summer! :] He looks great!
This is him trotting! :] His bend is coming around! Excuse the ending.. we are trying to teach him to stop immedietly and then back up.. he usually does it really well but of course when we decided to video it.. he didnt really want to listen!
And this is the GRAND finale! :] This was MY FIRST TIME CANTERING on benny! :] EVER! I was so pleased!! And this was his 2nd time ever cantering under saddle!... I loveeeee him!
:] Let me know what you think! And ill try and make more of an appearance on the board!!! :]]]] THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!
