Hi, From Florida

Hi, My name is Ashley and I am turning 15 in july. I ride both western and English, I own 2 horses, A BLM mustang, that is 5 years old and 15.2hh, he is black bay and a short story about him is previous owners whom were the adopters abused him horriably because they couldnt do anything with him, he was to well Wild. He bit a chunk of cheek out of a man while pinning him in a corner the day we looked at him. The people had had him exactly a year and gelded him only 3 months earlier. The admitted non-hesatantly that the beat him. 4 days later when we came to pick him up the man walked over in a knee high cast and said it happened while fighting to get him in a stall so that it would be easy for us to catch him. Well that was june 6th and now my father and I (my father, was a local horse gentler and trainer for 10 years) trained him. He had NO previous training or ground work, and we went from day 1 charging at us, lashing out, rearing up bucking, bitting ect.. to present day- completly spookproof, neck reined, goes off of leg or any pressure, nice lope, fast walk, trot and gallop, natural barrel, and cutting prospect...nice reining prospect... (I am going to start Cutting horse training in a couple weeks with him, and show barrels for fun....and then later train for reining, he's able to do all with no problem. We still have charging issues but not as common as first interaction. I am the only rider he has, no one else has EVER been on his back not even my father. He can jump 3'6 no problem.
I also own a reg. AQHA sorrel mare named Eight Bar Lady..aka Star. she dates back to the TB Man O' War. She has also Doc Bar blood lines. She was shown in walk/Trot classes before we bought her but now we are doing the whole re-training phase. She got tyed up couple days ago because she got out of her stall and into the feed that night and ate half a bag of NOT her feed but my medium worked mustang feed when she is supose to have a less starch contained feed, and she also ate ALOT of alfalfa and when we caught her and went up to her she bolted and with so much starch in her system and sudden hard exetrsice, she got tyed up but she is doing fine now, and after another blood test next week we will gradually start working her lightly again.

Other than Horses I dont really like much.....I like to hunt, dirtbike and go walking. I read fantasy fiction books.
I am homeSchooled, and I want to become a Horse trainer just as my dad was, and a breeder.

Things to know about me...
1)I do not support breeding unless the dam and Sire are reg. and good conformation and just plain good breeding qualtiy horses and more than likely going to throw a good baby that will be guarenteed a home. If you breed just to breed or just to have a cute little foal I will not support you, this only add's to the number of horses slaughtered because if you might have to sell this foal, it may not get a good long term home and may end up amongst other soon to be slaughtered horses. I am pro-slaughter because there are good reasons for it but I think if people cut down on breeding horses for no good reason that then there would be LESS slaughtering.

2)I am very friendly and mostly open minded, I am here to learn more, meet new people who share the same intrest and to share my knoledge.

Hi!! Welcome to the board! My name's Raechel and I'm 19. I think you'll really like it here, it's a great Forum I was homeschooled and I love Fantasy/Fiction! What are your favorites so far? I don't really know where I stand on the Slaughter issue, I kinda see it both ways....How long have you been riding? I hope Star is doing okay! I would love to be a Friesian and Friesian Sport Horse breeder one day....
