My first time on a horse that wasn't a pony ride, was when I was 5 on my best friends horse. That's when I became impossible to live w/, EVERYTHING was about horses, LOL. 2 yrs later we moved to the family farm, & I joined 4-H and the horseless horse program. I did that for 2 yrs, until I got my first horse, Chancy. He was a free lease from a 4-h leader. We kept him for 5 yrs ( he died at age 42!). When I was 12, we bought a McCoy "breeder" mare, who turned out to have a few issues & wasn't safe to ride.
At 13, I got Odie, who I still have today (he's the one in my avatar). Shortly after I got him, I started training & riding for other ppl.
I had my daughter when I was 22 and she was on Odie, by 3 months old. She's been on a few trail rides here & there but only started getting serious about it in the past 2 yrs & been taking lessons. She's 9 now and going to be learning huntseat w/ Odie now so she can show him.
My son who's almost 4, I can't keep off of Odie. I caught him in the stall with a step ladder trying to get on Odie! (My son is Hudini at escaping out of the house w/o us knowing). Odie was just standing there, stall door wide open, waiting to see if he could do it or not;)
