This was my first photoshoot with her. The photographer loved her movement and it was the first time I galloped her. The theme was Methods of Flying. he wants to make a coffee table book. fun idea lol.
I remember my absolute first time was with a mare named Sanora. I was 7 and a barn pigeon spooked her and she took off down the side of the indoor arena. Scared me a the time but I was disappointed when she stopped.

When life gives you lemons....chuck em at whoever is giving them to you!
I don't want lemons! I want cookies!

My first time....hhhmmmm...if my memory recalls correctly I was about 11 years old and it was my first time riding this pony sunny (who was recently put down last fall RIP my loyal friend) anywho i had been riding for about 6 months and had never went faster than a trot and I was taking sunny around the outside of a paddock and we were going along at a swift trot and when we got to the back corner of the paddock I guess Sunny had been ridden that way and knew there was a shortcut home so he bolted full speed breaking through 3 electric fences that hadnt been there when he was last taken that way and finally stopped when he got to the hitching post I remember all I could hear the whole time was my heart beating in my ears (my mom said I screamed bloody murder the whole time until about 5 seconds after he stopped lol) I was so scared but at the same time it was the biggest thrill of my life (at that point). Afterwards Sunny and I made an inseparable pair (until he was retired) that little pony loved to run, I dont remember ever kicking him, all you would have to do is kiss to him most squeeze a little bit. I used to run him on the barrels (at home only) and i had him running a low 16. I couldnt enter him in rodeos though because I couldnt put a saddle on him cause he had (at the time) a 4.5" sway in his back. Anyways Ive blabbed enough on my boy (sorry i just dont talk about him and our experiences often) Anywho loved hearing everyone elses tales too. Some were very funny

my first gallop was when i was learning to ride on my aunties ranch, my mum had me learn to ride without stirrups (i didnt like it then but now i love her for it!) but i was riding with my mum, auntie and cousin so i told my cousin i would beat him across the feild and so me and Tacky <3 (the first horse i rode) galloped. haha it was scary without stirrups. i was about 7 then.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
