Hello from Long Island

my name is Dominique, i'm 19 years old, living on long island, NY. My beloved mare of 7 years passed away a few months ago and i'm adopting an OTTB this saturday! (i don't know much about OTTBs and i'd really appreciate all the help I could get) i've been riding for 11 years. Mostly hunter under saddle and western pleasure but with this new horse, down the road i'd like to get into fox hunting, eventing and anything that will take me out of the ring. I'm so tired of riding in an arena! I'd love to meet other long islanders, OTTB owners, fox hunters, eventers, and anyone else with a passion for horses. None are my friends are interested in horses so I have no one to talk to about them. :/ now that i've introduced myself, let me know a little about you!

This is my Ginger(APhC Ms Fortune Hunter) who is dearly missed.

(horse on your far right)

I got this tattoo shortly after she was put to sleep.


And this is the boy i'm picking up this weekend. His name is Peruano Smoke.

This is a video of him racing in 2009. He is horse #1

Hi! Welcome to the forum. Sorry about missing your old friend. She was cute. Your new horse looks stunning! Once you get him you can post pics of him and any questions you have in a different forum, such as Horse talk or Horse riding . That way you'll get more exposure and more answers. Good Luck!

Welcome to the Forum! OTTBs are great horses. Wish you all luck with your new one!

Preferably English but I do a mix of disciplines. Where are you currently riding if you don't mind me asking? I've been off for awhile but I ride at Outlaw Acres in Bayport.
