Hey all..I probably should have done this when I first joined but ah well there's no time like the present xD
I'm a 14 year old from Tauranga, New Zealand, and am fully obsessed
with horses (much like a lot of you, I'm guessing
). I've been riding since I was 7 and though I have never owned a horse, my riding teacher is so wonderfully fantastic most of the time I think it's even better!
I ride/help at my nearby riding school, and am basically in charge of two awesome horses, Rambo and Toby. I've been working with them for about two years now and pretty much just think of them as my own, though they are both used once or twice a week in the riding school.
Rambo is a 15.3hh bay stationbred gelding. He is 8 years old and a nice hunter type horse, and though he puts up a macho act he gets totally petrified if he's asked to jump anything new...but he's been going to a couple of showhunters lately and starting to learn that not all new jumps are going to slaughter him! I'll hopefully take him to some hunts this season...
Toby's a tobiano QH, 14.2hh 10 yr old gelding. He's a very talented all rounder- just recently we took him to the Paint Nationals where he competed in dressage, flatwork, showjumping, showhunter, showmanship, western and games!
Recently I've just been given Apollo as well, a very green Morgan gelding. He's been lovely to work with as well.
I also have a black lab, who likes to think she's a horse as well (she loves to jump heh).
Anyway, please reply and tell me a bit about yourself and your horses as well!
[oh, and could someone tell me how I get my signature pic to show up?)
