Ok so There is this lady that lives 15 minutes away from us. She lives to barrel race!. She has lots of horses But all are barrel horses. She has atleast 30 horses. So we got to go to one of the rodeos and she was riding the horse we wanted named skippy and After I knew I wanted him :). Her place is called the marion ranch.We asked her if she has any horses for sale at the time but she doesn't.

Well I woke up one morning and very reluctantly got on my joddies and helmet and went to ride my naughty shetland, I had a bad fall from her the day before and knocked my confidence.

Mum told me " Don't get on Rosie, get in the car anf wear what you have on and bring your helmet" I was very confused ( I was only 9) Then she got on the phone and said somthing about a pinto pony, but I had no Idea what was going on.

When we were in the car, she told me we were going to look at 2 horses, one named Wally and another named Tess. Tess was the first one we lookeed at. She was a VERY green 2 year old fill, only being broken in for 2 weeks. Anyways, I rode her and she was the quietest pony for a green broken Filly. We kept her in mind and went to look at wally.

He was a 5 year old grey show galloway and he had a hard mouth so we let him go. We went Home and picked up my aunties float to have Tess on trial for 2 weeks.

Rosie went back to her origional owners and Tess was perfect with me, so we bought her. But in the trial she was attacked by a dog so she now hated them.

But we have come a very long way and I have taught her everything she knows

Sorry about the novel, I did'nt realise how much I actually wrote lol

1. about a year sfter we got her. (!!! How bad!!!)
2. Last year (Yaya!!)

I traded a QH mare for Annalie, my Haflinger mare. Best decision ever. Although I do sometimes miss Piper. Indyhorse and Amarea brought me Willow. I don't actually own her yet. Someone gave me Davinci as a suprise. And I have an Arabian mare coming this Saturday that I got through a rescue on here. I'm thinking of naming her Mystery.

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

I train horses, so one of my clients had her horses boarded at what was an Arabian breeding farm, but the Arabian trainer had left, so I guess shortly before I started working my clients horse, the owner of the property found a hunter jumper trainer to rent stalls, and run her training business at the farm. My client ended up telling me about the few Arabians that were left, and that one of them (4 years old) was going to be put down, because she was dangerous, so they were trying to find a qualified home to take her before the owner went through with putting her down. Well finally me, my client, and my boyfriend went in on this horse together, bought her for a buck, and then sent her to a rescue, because she was beyond my capabilities and time to "fix". Well in the meantime, as we were trying to figure out what to do about the one mare, I started hanging out with her half sister that was stalled right next to her. Also 4, not handled much before I got her. So I talked to the owner, and she said that I could start working with this horse in the hopes that it would help the "crazy" one. No dice, I stopped working my clients horse because the rainy season was starting, and she wanted to give her young one some time off for the winter. I ended up asking if they were selling the mare I started working with, and the trainer said they were, and quoted me a price of $3,000. I started talking with my client who was friends with the owner, and she ended up getting the price down to $1200, since I was already going to have to spend quite a bit right off the bat. So I was talking to my boyfriend, and he decided to buy the mare for me. I got her in November of 2009, and have been having a blast ever since. She had no name when I got her. She was referred to as "Dreame Khatchers Filly" on all paperwork except for registration papers. It was even marked on her stall, and she was 4 when I got her. I named her Saphira after the dragon in the Eragon series, because it just seemed to click in my head. So thats my novel of how I got my horse lol. The first picture is from when I first met her, and the second picture is from a couple months ago.

Buzz was sort of given to me....
Well it's a confusing story, I will try and explain.
My friend has a 13hh and she wanted something bigger 14hh as she isn't that tall.
Her dad one day said what about this horse approx 15hh TB gelding for free, she was happy her dad had suggested it as she had been trying to go see a horse for ages so of course she said yes.
Well Buzz came home to her place, she rode him, I rode Cookie (13hh pony), who I was probably to big for, but I wanted to ride.
She rode him for about 2-3months then started riding her pony again and I rode Buzz.
I then started paying for some of Buzzs things, now I have taken him to PC for the last year and a bit.
Plan to show him this year and yer...

I was looking for a horse and my dad had a friend who he worked with and his wife took care of a racing stud. They had a girl who had two ex-race horses on the property who was heading off to Uni and no longer had time for her horses.

So I brought her younger one an 8 year old, OTTB, bay named Chinga and he will be mine for life!

Sir Success. Eventer.
