Well, I'm new on this forum, but have been on HorseGroomingSupplies for a while. I'm ThePonyWrangler on there also. I own 3 minis, Bo, Blackie, and Bandit. Bandit is my triple registered appaloosa stallion who is heading off to NH to be trained next month and he will be heavily shown in 2011. Blackie coming along to the big breed shows also. Blackie was shown at local shows this year and did fairly well. Bo is my first mini, and can be a pain in my neck.
Do you drive any of your minis? I love it, as much as riding even.(full size horses of course )
I have five, three are driving, just have two more to go...
Do you travel to a lot of shows during the year?
I started Bandit(the appy) to drive in the fall. Blackie is not driving material and has a large problem with a bit and harness. I'm waiting until Bo is 3 to start him. This year I went to 6 or 7 shows that were relatively close. In 2011 I am going to show at AMHA and AMHR shows.
Hey, PonyWrangler! I just joined here and I did a search for all threads with "Connecticut" in the titles. There you were! (That is so funny with the pig behind the tree. I don't think I'd have even seen him if you hadn't said that.)
I'm in Litchfield County, too! Nice to cross paths with you.
Hey! Glad you responded back. I'm not far away from you. I live in Terryville. I went to Lee's riding stable (Litchfield) just before Thanksgiving to take a trail ride (pay per hour) and it wet my appetite to find something where I can get more involved with horses.
