Hi Anthony. I'm a year behind you as well. HJ it must have been a exciting day for you huh?
Its been more then 2 weeks since I last rode. Pity me.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

@Almond Joy.
May I ask why you are using those tie down things? My guess is to control his head swinging - but do you use it every time you ride?
This is actual a "Training Fork" commonly seen in western events... This is used to keep this mare's head down and to help her stretch into the bridle better. Basically, when the reins are pulled they are pulled down and straight to her chest instead of up towards my hands, encouraging but not FORCING a lower head. They are used for most lesson kids because it can be very difficult to ride this mare without it, since she has a bucking habit at times.

Morning all :) I'm not on for long, just long enough to get a post up. Waiting for my dad to get here with the SUV and horse trailer so I can load up and head off to pony club camp. My horse is all washed and clean and all my stuff is together. Here's hoping Monty will get on the trailer! Last trip wasn't a great one, he scrambled really badly and almost went down, but that was in a different trailer and he doesn't seem to generalize. One trailer is bad but not all...

I'm so nervous I can't eat but I'm so excited I'm just about bouncing off the walls. And... I'm going to get soaked. The weather forecast for today is rain.

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

Hi western!!! Glad you're joining us. It's never too late. Not unless you're twenty, that is.

Hey all,

I think I'm going to join this thread as well. :) I don't actually have my own horse yet, but I think I'm getting one this year (my dad and I are actually going to start fixing up the barn this Saturday and will hopefully begin putting up fencing in a few weeks!). So yeah, I guess I'm just saying hello.

Hello RivendellNative! (Is your username after the LOTR trilogy?)

I hope you get your horse; that will be very exciting. Have you been riding before?
