    My 3yr Olds :) I'm Starting To Ride Them

    Well as most of you know, I had moved to North Carolina then to New York and was away from my horses for 8 months. Well I got back at the begining of June and started working with my two 3yr/olds from where I left off, they hadn't forgotten a thing! Well I've started to ride them now. I've only been on them 3 times each and twice without anyone leading them (did that the first time just to see how they would react to walking with me on them). They are doing SO great! They are so willing to please me and do what I ask of them.

    Anyways, here are some pics of our 3rd ride :) Enjoy!

    Oh and I have yet to use a bridle on either of them, just halter and lead rope, all my bridles are too big for their small heads haha.

    Rain is the grey and Paradise is the black

    And thank you :)

    They are certainly good looking horses and it appears you are doing a good job with them.

    I know it often isn't appreciated for a stranger to tell someone their business but I just feel like I have to say something. Several of those pictures made me cringe. To ride a young horse in a paddock with wire fencing and other loose horses in there is a very dangerous thing. I am only mentioning this because I have seen how quickly things can go bad, even on a young'un that is very mellow and laid back and I would just hate to see either you or them get hurt. If you can afford it, I really suggest you find a way to build a sturdier pen made of either pipe panels or wood to ride them in for the first little while. If that isn't an option, then please, please be very careful.

    I watched an 18 year old QH dressage horse with a very experienced rider blow through wire fence one day because he spooked so hard.. so yes, it's very true and a sad reality :(

    Your babies are beautiful, though! I love Arabs, I have one myself and they're the most loyal of horses!

    Aw..... That's like my little Arab :) I was away for a couple months and he also had time off before I left as well and he was great when I hopped on yesterday. Just a little wonky.
    They're beautiful and Odyssey's Rainsong is an awesome name. My boy's is FAR too long...

    Thank you :) I'd like to think I'm doing a good job. But I really think its more them then me. I mean you can't get on a horse and ride unless they are willing to let you....and my girls are more then willing. They get jealous when I'm riding one of the other horses and not them.

    I had a round pen but long story short the neighbor took it :/ But I am being very careful.

    That goes to say how "bomb" proof a horse can be! Haha my old boss told that no horse is truely bomb proof. I mean my horses would be what you would consider bomb proof, but if they hear a gun go off they run as fast as they can towards the house. Now can you imagine what they would do if they heard a bomb go off? They'd probably drop dead of a heart attack!

    And thank you :) They are very loyal arent they!
