Just because their mine. My mare doesn't have perfect conformation, her withers are to high, pasterns to long. She comes second to last every year in halter class at fair. She canters like a deer. A girl said her qaits weren't "quality". A judge loved her trot/prance , she's a competeive barrel horse, and a good beginging jumper. My gelding got passed up because he was called pigion toed and lame. He limped because he hadn't been rode in a year and didn't have shoes on. First show he outran the girl that passed him up for another horse, and all the others that told her too. He also won his halter class. My colt, he came from an auction, not sure of his breed, he's little. But he's one of the smartest 3 year olds I've ever been on.

It bugs me when people can automatically pick apart a horse. I can do the same thing, but I see the horse for a horse.

Both my boys I feel in love with at first sight lightning I took lessons on and he was an old hunting horse that the owner didnt have time for so he let the barn use him for lessons .. when I first rode him he was horrible un mannered and showed just what a novice rider I was but there was just something bout him he met me at the gate the next week and that winter he was my christmas present we have been together ever since he's defiently not perfect in conformaton he's got that "APPY " indian horse look to him but he's is truely my first love we have done soo much and proofed people wrong and even at 27 he proofed at his last horse show he still had it in him when he tried to buck me off in the arena

Then there is REBEL

I layed eyes on him when he was roughly a week old running around with his long foal legs and knew I wanted him then I had to wait seven months to get him I got him and at first regreted it cause he was evil!!!!!!!! But decided to stick it out my trainer I rode with at the time thougt I was crazy but there was just something bout that crazy little red horse
he's was sooo toed out in the front that I though I had bought a pasture decoration my farrier worked with him alittle turned him in slightly cause I don't belive in messing with nature too much .. I love his free spirit even at 9 years old he still acts like a foal somedays he's out to have fun with the other horses sometimes he rather be getting loves from me evenn with his imperfections we have come leaps and bounds in competion and proving people just flat out wrong he's built to race but can do westen pleasure also right down to the slow lil jog and made people shiver in there boots at shows he's my boy as is my old horse and I wouldnt trade them for the world

That's amazing =) I love hearing stories about things like this! I own 7 horses, 5 of them are rescue horses!

Spirit - my mom orginally bought him for herself because she wanted a true black horse, turns out he's a seal brown and I pretty much fell in love with him from day one! He's just perfect for me =) he's not the best horse in the world but his spunk and character always makes me happy.

Eddie - he's my first horse. He's 9, but he is such an ******* and despite his attitude I seriously love him. I've had him for a long time now and he still gives me attitude but I wouldnt trade him for nothing!

Rico - he's green broke but he's come a long way! I remember when I couldnt even get near him to catch him to work with him. I fell in love with him ever since then. Now he's the biggest suck I own! He even licks your hand and if he wants his butt scratched he will back up till he hits you to make you scratch! Haha!

Midnight - my stud. He's defiantly not perfect (we already know) but he's come a long way from what he use to be before he was trained.

Mama - one of the rescues we bought, I guess there was something about her we all fell in love with, then 3 weeks later she had her little baby angel, who turned out to be healthy and very curious! I love them both and im glad we saved them from slaughter!

Harriette - another rescue. She was so afraid but there was something about her that made me want to reach out and help her! That's why we bought her in the first place. She's come a long way and now she only trusts me at the moment. Im really happy about that cause I want to be there for her.


See none of my horses are perfect but they are mine which im really glad because they make me feel like im helping them out but at the same time helping me out. =)
Thanks for your post, that really made my night.

What makes Lakota mine is the fact that I'd do anything for him and he'd do anything for me. We've only been together since July but we've come so far and his trust in me is just so incredible, its hard to explain. He came from an abusive home where it just started out as a personality mismatch but then esclated to his old owner smacking him around cause she didn't know how to control him otherwise. He used to be a nut about spraying him, at one point spinning out of the cross ties and into the aisle. Now I can spray his mane and tail and forelock and he barely lifts a hoof to move. He'll come up to me in the pasture and nuzzle me. Its the fact that when I sit on his back, I'm not scared of him even when he does some stupid crap. He's helped with my confidence a tremendous amount. And even when he went pyscho on me and embarrassed me in front of a lot of people, I still couldn't bring myself to yell at him. I knew it wasn't his fault, I had been telling my trainer, my mom, anyone that would listen that he was in pain. Turns out, he had a cheek laceration in his mouth and it hurt when I tried to get him to stop. Its hard not to love him. He picks up chairs, benches, bottles, treat bags, brushes, with his teeth and grabs the hose when you're watering him and pulls it out of the bucket...and he's started pulling the heater out of the bucket which is not good. I just love him because his personality is one of a kind and his coloring is unique and will stand out in the dressage ring.

Tess when I was a little girl all the way up to today my dream horse is a skewball I think there the flashiest most beautiful horses going!

My main girl was hated by everyone nobody wanted her even in auction so I was apprehensive when I got her and we just clicked! Sure we drive each other mental nearly every day but I love magz so much she teaches me something every day and I really appreciate it from her. I love going into her stable at night and just brushing and talking to her. When she lays down I can snuggle right on in to her. Thank god horses don't talk cause that horse knows everything about me!!

My ponies were all a prject that I was planning breaking and putting miles on then selling thwm but I can't bear to get rid of my brats! Despite the fact the lot of them can break outta anywhere and are the cheekiest ponies ever I love them I just gotta whistle and the herd comes flying!!

The rest of my guys I love them but I would never kill for them like I would maggie she has my heart and always will pity she knows it!

A few months ago I saw a quarter horse breeder and he was showing us around his place. Well I was looking around while we were walking and caught sight of a beautiful weanling. We both just paused and looked at each other than continued on our way. Then I got called away by one of our friends that board there, she wanted me to see her horse while the adults talked. Soon I was called over and they showed me the filly that had caught my eye and told me that the breeder thought she would be a good starting horse. I was in utter disbelief that she was the same one I instantly seemed to connect with. So now she is my Araya, my girl. I've basically taught her everything she knows and she's doing well. She follows me around never wants to leave me. She's taught me so many things and simply she's just my girl I'm the only one she'll try hard for the only one she really trusts and the only one she completly respects. But most importantly she's been my motivation and strength in proving that despite my physical/medical issues I can train a horse I can do anything I want to really.
