YES! I even added rope on each end of the handle bars to pretend I had reins.

I also had an "outdoor" arena and a full strick of horses made out of tree branches. Also had a jumper course.

okay.... 'fess up! what was it named? :)

Probably something stupid like "Blackie" - I'm pretty sure most of us little girls dreamed about a black horse that we would inevitably name "Blackie." You know, because that is original... :roll: hehe.

M2G - my backyard was my field, and my dad built this little shed thing that I used as my "stable" ... of course that was for when I was playing "horsie," which brings me to another confession: I used to look through my horse books and pick the one I thought was prettiest that day, and pretend I was that horse.
Not to mention I also had a collection of a zillion model horses which I played with to no end.

I always dreamed of owning a black horse. I grew up watching the Black Stallion television series and always dreamed of owning one, but now I finally do! 8) I always said I would call him "Black",that part I didnt push

I still have allllllll my horse models.

I used to collect horse models, sadly I haven't a clue where any of them are. Probably would be worth something now since that was aahhh 30 or so years ago
Another confession I love Vida more than the other horse we own. Can't explain it, I just adore her

LOL (it can be our secret).

I just recently bought a new horse and I have to secretly admit that I fell in love with him a lot quicker (and probably still do) than my boy I've had for 3 years.

(good thing horses can't read )

I still have to stop my self yelling out 'HORSIE!' everytime I see one in a paddock, like I did when i was five...
I'm convinced that I will know any person I see driving with a float... then I'm disappointed when I don't.
I eat horse pellets, they're nice and salty ;]
When driving, I imagine myself riding over the country I see, or if there is a log, how I would approach it and jump it.
My mum thinks i'm crazy because I have a picture of my horse in my wallet instead of my best friend/parent/significant other.
I retaliate by saying my horse IS my significant other :]
I love the smell of hay/sweat/dirt/manure.
My dad always tries to make me clean up my shed, but it never happens :]
There are a million spiders in my shed, btu if I see ONE at home I freak out.
I still try to make my dog showjump. she wont have a bar of it.
I care more about the state of my riding boots than my favourite heels.
I would rather have a new riding jacket than a pretty dress.
I have close to twnety saddle blankets for three horses :]
It is a condition of any boy I meet, they have to be willing to stand and hold my horse or come watch me at a show :]

wow I have lots...
lots more to!

Your dog show jump?! I don't know why I keep forgetting all those things I've also done. I used to full hunter courses with my dog.

I have a picture album in my purse of all my horses that I carry with me 24/7. I also always wear 2 leather bracelets with my horse's names and dog around me wrist.

Everyone probably does this, but I NEVER tire of shopping in tack shops. I can spend hours in any tack shop, just looking and comparing everything, sometimes I just go to look even if I don't have money or don't need anything. Just looking at all the new and gorgous saddles, checking out the latest schooling pad design, seeing the latest Breyers (even tho I'm 18!!). I love chatting with the store owners or employees too, trading knowledge, talking about an upcomming show, our horses, gossip....

I made my brother a bridle out of straws, lace, and tape (especially tape) and then hung it on my wall after he refused to ever wear it again. :)
