I would just like to introduce myself as one of those horseless horse lovers. Even though I don't have a horse, my daughter and I would love to be part of a community that loves these magnificent creatures.
I've done alot of horseriding back in the early 90's and my favorite was the trail rides. The horse I rode was a black quarter horse/ morgan cross gelding named Shadow that I leased off a friend. He was the best trail horse I ever rode and if I had the money...I would have bought him in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, my friend moved up country and took him with her.
I'm not riding to this day, I studying to become a paramedic but my love for horses still stands strong. I have triplet 9 yr old girls and out of my three girls I have one that loves horses as well....her favorite are the pintos and paints. Both of us have enjoyed looking at the horses in this forum and my daughter wanted to become part of it right away.
Here she is with her stuffed paint horse....Scout.
