New from Alberta

Hey there, I just joined. I'm from Alberta, Canada and I have four horses named Parker, Smores, Smudge and Bogey. I also had horses named Spook, Scotch and Artist. Spook and Scotch found new homes, but my little Artist passed away on June 14th from colic at just over three months old.

I ride western, and just recently had Smores (three years old) and Bogey (four years old) sent to a trainer to be started undersaddle so I could get back into riding. Unfortunately they haven't been worked much in the month I've had them back due to weather, time constraints, and training issues. I'm hoping to have Parker started under saddle this fall or in the spring.

I also love chuck wagon racing. I grew up watching it, and it's very important to me. If you have questions about the chucks, I can probably give you the answer. :)

I'm a college student, majoring in Sociology, but because I haven't been enjoying the progam, I'm considering switching to a program with horses, but nothing is set in stone as of yet.

This is Smudge, APHA registered SPB 2005 grey gelding.


This is Parker (my first horse) 2005 sorrel sabino pinto gelding., having a vanity moment.


This is Smores, APHA registered SPB 2005 bay gelding, letting me know how much he missed me at the trainer's.


And Bogey, 2004 sorrel gelding, and I in the arena


And my colt, Artist, palomino TBX colt, March 11, 2008 - June 14, 2008. RIP.



Thanks for reading. :)

RIP my beautiful little Artist.
