Wanna see some pics of my possible lease?

After two weeks of waiting, I finally got to see Frita!!! For those who may not know, Frita is an 18 year old Quarter horse mare I may be leasing this summer. She is 15 hands and is completely broke. She has been shown quite a bit in her past and has raised three foals (one of which is now 2 and looks spectacular I might add). She has the agility to work cows and the refinement to excel in the WP ring. And to top it off, she makes an amazing trail horse.

I didn't get to ride her today because she hasn't been ridden in a year (The lady has all her time absorbed into the 2 year old and work, hence her leasing the mare) I am scheduled to go work and ride her on the weekends so I can get a good idea of her personality and get to know how to "operate" her .

Anywho, here is a confo shot of Frita. I think she looks pretty good, no? (feel free to chime in if otherwise) Though I will note she isn't swayback like she looks in the picture.

Also while I was there, the lady showed me her 10 year old POA mare. She offered to let me work with the pony as well so if I wasn't interested in Frita, I could lease the pony. The POA has been shown at state and won first place in WP when she was 7. I don't have any really good pics of her, but here is a head shot. Isn't she adorable?

On top of all this, the lady is only 4 miles away from some amazing trails. She also has a HUGE pasture on top of a fenced off arena to ride and work in. Her barn is gorgeous and very tidy. The lady has spent her horse life training racehorses and training/showing/breeding show horses. Frita's second colt (I can't think of his show name now) won ROM points his very first time in the ring, and is worth bu-ku bucks. On top of that, this woman was good friends with my grandfather, and knows my previous riding instructor very well. She probably would be more willing to let me do things than soembody else who didn't know them. She will not be charging me anything to lease the horse. Her only request is to get a contract in place in case something happens to me or her horse.

This must be heaven, right?

Well...almost. As long as I get along with the Frita or the POA, I want to lease one of them. The problem is here: This lady lives 20 miles away from me (40 miles round trip). The place where I will be doing my summer internship is 15 miles from me (30 roundtrip); in the opposite direction. Going back and forth is going to take a lot of gas, even for my ugly 2 door cavalier. And getting gas takes $$$. And lots of it. I don't know if I can afford the driving I will have to do. Hmm...I've at leat got some time to figure out what I'm going to do.

My barn is 45 minutes away, you can do it if you want, it is a lot of driving but I'm sure you can make it work, they are both adorable!

Good luck with them hopefully you connect with one at least.

45mins driving isn't that much
I used to be on the bus every morning for that long to get to school

Her confo's pretty decent. She is 18 so wont necessarily be as "spry-looking" as she could be, however lack of work would contribute to this.
Definitely needs muscle but I really like her back end. She's a little sway-backed and long in the neck, but nothing to worry about ;)
