Greetings from an inner city cow kid!

My title doesn't make a lot of sense to most people but yes, I'm an inner city cow kid.

My name is Sydnie and I live right smack dab in the middle of the city, somewhere in Idaho.
I've been around horses all my life and I've been riding horses by myself, that means no double saddling it with the adults, since I was 3 and I rodeod from age 3 until I was 10.

My grandpa is a cattle rancher and its a 25 minuet drive from my house to his. We go up about 2-4 times a year to help brand, but if it were up to me, I would practically live there!
I do suppose you might like to hear about my horse history:
The very first horse I rode was a beautiful black gelding, Blacky was his name. I learned almost everything I know about horses while sitting atop the handsome beast. He would do anything for me and took care of me no matter what. I was never all that competitive when I rodeod, I just let him do his thing and if I was uncomfortable at his pace, he picked up on it and adjusted. He's one of the best horses I've ever had the please to ride on. We rodeod together for 3 years before he got his leg injured in a fence, he died shortly after.

My second horse was Poky, and man was that mare something. She was the great great great great granddaughter of the legendary Seabiscut.
She would do anything you asked. You asked her onto a track and gave her her head, she would dig in and run her heart out. But she was just as intuned to me as Blacky. The slightest bit of nervousness from me and she would adjust her pace for me. Oh how I miss her. She was pregnant for her final time, she was old, she died shortly after birthing. Her colt fallowed her 2 days later.
I still have my own little piece of Poky. He's a handsome spitting image of his mother, and I know that with a little bit more work and loving, he might just grow up to be as great as his mother.
Pokey and I rodeod for 2 incredible years.

I no longer rodeo, though I want to again.
I'm planning on purchasing my very first horse of my own, as well as working with Poky's colt and perhaps even buying a colt of my own to train.

Anyway, thanks for looking here guys!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Howdy! I got my first horse when I was young and I'm from Miami, so I totally relate to inner city horseback riding. :) Good luck and hope you start rodeoing again.
