I'm Steph, or Stephie, don't really mind what you call me! =P
I'm 17 and live in England, UK.. or Engerland as i call it =P Don't ask why i call it that!!

I've been riding since i was 2 and have ponies/horses since i was about 4/5 ish!
And my first pony is still alive! So i still see him, he ancient but he still does lead rein lessons and loves it!

I currently own 3 horses. Two are retired.
Rhia and Sophie are the two retired mares which live on a plot of land my auntie owns.
Rhia is an Irish Draft cross and is 18, she has cancer and a hole in her hoof, where she ripped her coronet band. Sometimes i jump on her and walk around bareback, which she enjoys. We've owned Rhia since she was 5.
Sophie is a pure thoroughbred and as nutty as fruit cake, she's 17 but was abused and i have ridden her a few times but she hates the saddle and it was mean putting her through being ridden when she clearly dislikes it. We've owned her for about 4 years now and she's learnt to trust me to the point that i have sat on her bareback and can do most things with her, cept ride her =P.

Jimbo is my hugeee, well huge to me [i'm 5ft4], 17hh Thoroughbred cross. He's a pretty bay, with no white markings cept 2 small white splodges on his front right leg. He is an ex-3 day eventer, was on the British Eventing team and i now compete Dressage and Show jumping on him.

I'm currently studying an NVQ in Horse Care and work 5 days a week for Keeley Durham. Sometimes taking horses to shows for the Whitaker's [we keep a few horses for the Whitaker's]

Anyway i've probably bored you enough, here's some pics of my horses for you!



Both of them together

Sorry got a bit carried away

And now
All of these are from our old yard. He is now at Keeleys!
He looks cute in this one =P
With Freddie! He misses Freddie!
I found a couple of him at Keeleys!

And i'm going too stop there =P You will probably see loads more of him =D Not so much Rhia and Sophie as my aunties land is 1 hour away from me, right outside my aunties house though. But when i go visit, i'll take the camera =D

Some vids
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4nC4xBuvvI - a pretty old mix-up of clips! lol! some older then others
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=AupKmgqPX5s - mine and his story together. Uploaded in Sept, need to make a new one of these as we've come on loads since then!!
I'm not the bravest rider in the world and was use to ponies and he was an advanced eventing horse, not a good mix. He objected to being asked to jump so small and stuff. But we've pulled through, he does what i ask him too now and has such a bond with me =]

Anyway i will shut up now.

Hope too meet some new friends here!
