Finally Got My First Horse!!

Long post, sorry :P But I FINALLY got a horse! I have been wishing for 2 years to have a horse, but my family's financial status was always an issue. Not that we are poor, but we just couldn't afford a horse at the time. I was just about to lease a horse in February of this year but, I got some shocking news. Right before I went to take the lease horse on trial, I was diagnosed with bone cancer :( Although I have been doing really, really well, and beat my cancer as of May 23rd!!! Since I had done so well and had a great prognosis, I thought I would not be receiving a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. But lo and behold, I did! And of course, I wished for a horse! My wish was approved and I made my decision on the horse a week ago. Her name is Made You Look Madison, I call her Maddy. She is a gorgeous, 14.2hh, liver chestnut mare. 9yrs. Old. Was a lesson horse and can jump 2'6 I am absolutely in love with her. Yesterday we had the most amazing ride. She does have some dominance issues, but my trainer and I are doing some natural horsemanship to help with that! So I guess cancer does have a good side :)Maddy.jpg
