My name is Morgan and I am a 16 year old girl living in southern Ontario. I've been riding at a small stable about a mile from my parents dairy farm for 9 years. In the past I've ridden numerous different horses and have owned 2.
After riding and competing on old school horses at the stable, my parents started the search for my first horse. For my tenth birthday my parents leased my first horse after 3 years of riding. A chestnut quarter horse x mare. She taught me so much in the year that I had her.
The next summer I bought my first horse. Apple Jacks (aka AJ) is a 16 year old Pony of the Americas gelding. I still ride the spunky little guy even though I am way too big for him. :( He is now for sale so that I can move on to a horse that fits me. I'll miss him terribly but the little man has taught me all that he can.
I also owned a 34 year old Welsh pony mare named Tina, until last December when she had to be euthanized due to old age. Tina was orignally purchased as a companion horse for AJ but the crazy old lady turned out to be a huge family pet.
I'm currently on the hunt for a new horse and I'll continue to ride as long as I can!!
Thanks in advance for welcoming me to the forum. I hope to get to know many of you.
