Lakota is my love. He lets me be myself and he gives me a place to de-stress myself after a long, hard day. He's my voice of reason when I'm talking crazy and feeling the weight of the world. He alway is ready to listen to me gibber on and on. He makes me laugh when the days are sad and depressing. My favorite thing he does is when I can throw jackets, cones, bags, and throw poles (on the ground near him) without him freakin out but then a little sunlight streaming through the indoor arena or a butterfly and he litteraly twist his head so his eye is facing the ground and puts his head about 5 inches off the ground to look at it. He will always do everything in his power to side-step it.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I have loved Cinny since the first day I saw him in person. It was a cold winter morning and he was in his pasture with his mom and other horses, sleeping in the middle of the round bale. And I do mean in the middle, as in...he pawed out a huge hunk so that he could go into the middle of it and lay down like a bird in a nest. I figured he was a smart horse from the get go. It also took a lot of convincing to get him out of that warm nest.

Cinny is the sweetest thing, so willing to go the distance and try to do everything I want of him. He tries his big heart out, even when I make mistakes, and I have made a few big ones with him at this point. He is always happy to see me and even knows the sound of my footsteps when I come in to the stable...throws his nose out and squeals a greeting. When I'm with him, he makes the rest of the world just go away...at least for a while.

Cinny is such a beautiful creature, I always admire photo's of him!

I meant to say too Cori, it looks like that photo of King was scanned in, when did you have him?

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Thanx :) I can't wait to see him in his spring coat after a winter full of "black as knight." Our Trainer says we should be able to start showing at entry level this spring...so excited :)

I am still new to some of the terminology in showing here - what does 'entry level' mean? What type of competing is that?

I love my Rosie because she taught me trust again after my various injuries. I knew she was the one when I first saw and rode her. I bought her on the spot.

I love my Rook because of the connection we have. He is my challenge horse because he can be a little hard to handle when riding in a group...but we're working on it. We're still learning each other in the riding department (I've only had him since April), but so far, so good. He's also more affectionate than Rosie. He's another one that I would have bought on the spot, but someone else had looked at him before I did. It came down to his owner making the decision between the two of us. She has turned out to be one of my best friends here.

Entry/entro...the very very lowest level of dressage.

Oh I was wondering if that was it! I just did a couple Intro tests on my mare last month - lots of fun and great experience although she did try to do some movements solely on her hind legs

Cinny and I are going in with a "handicap" right off the bat...he's a terrible teeth grinder so we will have a deduction the second we go into the ring ha ha ha.

Charlicata Rosie has the sweetest eyes! I almost always pick my horse on their eyes...they tell everything about the horse if you know how to look.
