Only for the ribbons
I have been riding since I was very young. I have a love of horses and now I am finally able to afford my own.
Along the way, I have made many friends, friends with money who show very beautiful talented, but easy horses.
Last year, at the schooling program a new horse came in. Nobody really knew where he came from and from the lol did it, he was green, and ecspecially new to English and jumping. He learned very fast and became a horse only to the most advanced riders in the schooling program. As more and more riders rode him, and as being over worked,
he picked up many bad habits. I finally saved up enough money to buy him and I've been schooling him for a year now and know him very well. He's been mine only for a few days. He isn't an easy horse to ride but I do my best. I want to show with him, I'm working on him changing leads and balancing and we are doing great.
The other girls at my barn, who are my close friends, are criticizing me for buying him. I don't care about showing or winning, I love this horse and I know he is difficult but I don't want any other horse. Everybody talks about how he isn't a warm blood or thoroughbred, he's just a dumpy quarter horse who can't jump.
There was a show at my barn and I decided to graze him, and act as if I was preparing to show and I watched the girls from the other barns reactions and they laughed and made comments.
I don't understand why people won't take him seriously
I have showed with him before in the schooling program, I did 4 shows and here are my places
