What does your horse mean to you?

Well what does he/she mean in your life?

Are they your best friend or just a working partner?

Oh this should be fun :)

I got Bella when I was 7 years old. She was a 13 y.o. Purebred Arabian mare. She was my first horse, and was a real handful, but we became best friends real quick. Whenever I had a bad day she was there to make me feel better. She was there for me though my parents divorce, my first broken heart, she was my stability throughout high school, the reason I said "no" lol. She has been coast to coast with me, and I even got divorced for her. She is My Bella, and I will never leave her behind. I have now had her for 15 (almost 16) years, and I trust her with my life. I even rode her throughout my entire pregnancy!

Hm, what do my horses mean to me??

One word.................EVERYTHING.

If it weren't for my horses, I probably wouldn't have survived as long as I have. If I did, I would likely either be a drug addict or in prison. Denny helped me keep my sanity when I was in high school and my parents were getting a divorce and Dobe helps me keep it now between the stress of work and trying to get my place in this world figured out.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Every horse I've ever had has been special, but this mare I have now means the world to me. We saved each others life.. literally.

We've been there for each other thru thick and thin, and always will be

My horses are my best buds. I saved Stella from a bad home and have raised Luna from birth. They don't have impressive bloodlines and they aren't fancy show horses. In fact, they wouldn't be worth much to anyone else in the world, but to me they are the world (the only exception being my kids). They lift my spirits when I'm feeling down. They always have a nicker for me when they see me. I love to bury my face in their fuzzy winter coats. I plan to have them for their entire lives which is going to be a lot of years yet. I can't imagine my life without them.

Stella - sweet, timid, elegant, lovely, lively, amazing
Luna - large, unattractive, naughty, adored

Some one had a quote on here
"horses are not my whole life but they make my life whole"
My horse just keeps me going if I didnt have him my life would be different.
He has been my shoulder to cry on threw my parents divorce and when I have problems at school he's always there. Wierd how somthing that couldnt talk could say so much...

Live to ride. Ride to live.

Before I matured I had depression and suicidal issues, but my mom bought me my horse Reggie freshmen year of high school even though it'd be hard to afford. And honestly, HE SAVED MY LIFE. I knew I could never run away or hurt myself, because I'd never leave him and have to miss and worry about him. This horse is everything to me. The day after I lost one of my friends I couldn't talk about it, but I went to the barn and just rode. I swear he knew it because he was so calm and easy that day. I love him so much, I'm afraid to think of what my life would be like without him.

>> four wheels or four hooves
both create happiness <<

Starlite came into my life at the perfect time, things were really going badly at school with friends being suicidal and it was just a very difficult time. Starlite came in my life when things started blowing up and going to see her made everything okay. I truly don't know if I'd be here now if it wasn't for her, I wasn't the only one that knew her and I were meant to be at first sight, my mom always says "The day I saw you and her at the end of the barn I knew she was your horse"

It's funny, too, because she was across the street from where I trail rode for a year. We'd ride by her pasture, Starlite and her two buddies (one being her son) would always run down and they were just always THOSE pretty horses with the big manes and tails. Never in a million years thought one would be MINE! It's still kinda crazy thinking about it.

Both Starlite & Dream (even though Dream is my moms) mean the world to me. Dream gave me confidence in the saddle what seemed to be just in time for me to be able to train Starlite. Without Dream, I would have never been able to train Starlite. Dream and I have issues, we don't always get along (mainly because she doesn't get along with anyone) but I LOVE her.

I don't know what I would do without either one, they're really my LIFE.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

my horse is always there for me, through the hard and good times. She will always mean the world to me and despite all the problems she has gone through, I will ALWAYS be there for her. Food never distracts her she always comes up for kisses and cuddles, I have not had many things care for me so much in my life. She is always there to protect me from the bad, and I would give my life for her anyday.
My horse is worth all the money in the world to me, whether she is not to anyone else. The day I lose her may be the day I lose my mind.
People say horses come and go, but friends are always there, well my horse is my best friend and I know she will never leave me.
I got hollie for my seventeenth birthday, the day I had to sell my first horse, it was the sadest but the best day of my life, one I will never forget ;)
