Smile Hi from Ontario Canada!!

I am a new member.
I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself!

I am 14, and live in Ontario, Canada. I own 1 horse. She is a Quarter Horse/Appaloosa. I have had her for 2 years She will be 4 in March. She walk, trots, canters, and jumps natural objects(logs, water, colvert), but knocks the poles of the cavaletti down.

Sonya March of this year. I need to put the new pictures of her on Photobucket :)

I also leased a Thoroughbred gelding this summer, but am not going to lease him next year because he doesnt load, and i am going trillium next year.

I am looking at a 2 1/2 year old thoroughbred filly to show next year. Just the flat classes for the first two years.

I have been riding for 5 years. I ride mainly english, but me and my friend tack up western sometimes and do barrels, poles,trails, or other mounted games.

Hi Ilovesonya. My name is Steph and I am in New Zealand. I have one horse also, her name is Phoenix and she is a draft breed cross.

Your little horse looks like a real little cutie pie! So if you are looking to get a TB for showing, does that mean that Sonya is your pleasure riding horse or do you think you may try showing with her also?

I am a pleasure rider myself, although once Phoenix gets to about six (she is 4 at the mo) I may consider our options based on what she shows an aptitude for. She is very well put together and might make a great hunter I suspect. Anyway welcome to the forum I look forward to "seeing" you around and about.

I was thinking about showing her next year, but she may be pregnant.. :(

See, the owners of the farm i board her at had a Hackney/Clyde colt 2 years ago, and he has been in the pasture with Sonya for 5 months, and they thought he was too young to breed, and didn't know what to do, but apparently he does, because he has bred with all of the mares in with him (a 5 yr old TB, a 2yr old paint, and Sonya). The TB is for sure prego, as she is making milk, the 2 yr old isn't, but she was bred to the arab stud at the farm, and Sonya hasn't came back into season since June...

I was going to show her English, and do the mounted games(barrels, poles, steady hands, keyhole, and flag race), but i dont think i will be able to next year unless i bring the foal to the shows...

What a happy boy horse he must have been! Wow it will be an interesting x though don't you think? Hackney/clyde, QH cross. It could have some great jumping potntial, it will be solid with plenty of bone. On the other hand it is a bugger to have your girl out of commission. On the positive side having a foal is a great way to mature young horses and tends to get any scattiness out of their system. Not that I am saying your mare is scatty LOL, just trying to make you feel better!

Definatley a Jumper!! The dad has jumped of a 4 ft stall standing, and out of a 4.5 ft fence.
Grandsire is jumping 3 ft and just started jumping last month!
