Hello from Indiana!
I almost put "Kentucky" because I'm from there originally and only moved to Indiana 5 1/2 months ago!
My name is Michele and I'm a new horse owner - almost. I went today to look at a prospect (after combing through countless ads online and seeing some scraggly li'l critters) and thought she was beautiful but fell in love with her trot! I hate hate hate trotting but hers was sooo smooth!
She's a 3yr old Bay Mare who's only been ridden once this year, so when I first got up on her (bareback), she started to buck. I have a broken foot (in a boot cast) and would've stayed on but thought better of it and jumped off. Unfortunately I lost my balance and fell right on my butt !! The owners were scared (for me/for themselves?) anyway. We saddled her and she was fine. Never showed any other bad habits. Stood still and let me lean right on her. Even cuddled with her head against my shoulder for a few minutes.
We're havin' her moved to my friend's house (where I'm keeping her) on Saturday. I'm SOOOOOOOOO excited. I've wanted this for so long!!
Anywhosey. Just wanted to say hello. I'll be postin' photos of her when I get her home next weekend.
Nice to meet everyone! I'll be here for advice, I'm sure, as she's my first horse!
