new to all of this

Hi, my name is Olivia and Im 20 year old. I live in California. Well Ive wanted a horse all my life and finally my dad bought one. Its just that he nor I know much about really taking care of him but the people he got the stable from is telling him about all the health things and when to do what, so thats good. He said he will get someone to show me and him how to do everything we need to do. He is a beautiful horse. The other thing is that I wish I lived closer because I live about 30-45 min away since I dont live with my parents any more plus I work and go to school. But I know I will try and visit as much as I can. But my dad will be there taking care of him too. :) Im just glad that I can now do what Ive always wanted to do and have a horse. I know it takes a lot of work and commitment

my poor horse

Hi, this is olivia. Well i went to see my horse today and I rode him for the first time today!!! YAY!! His name is Capitan(spanish for captain) my dad named him. Well he is a 4 year old gelding. I think he is a quarter horse. My dad has not showed me the papers yet. and he is 14 hh. he is light bay. Well he likes me a lot and i love him so much. he is so nice and gentle especially that im a first time owner of a horse and dont know much yet but im learning. Well after I rode him for a while, my dad wanted to ride him. so he got on and Capitan started bucking. My dad jumped off and landed on his back. He tried again and the same thig happened. But i got on him again and he was fine. even when he is in the stall and we pet him, he is fine with me but not so good with my dad. he will just turn away. We think that he may have been whipped by the previous owner and we think it was probably a man. the lady that was there helping me who is about my dads weight got on her to see if it was a weight thing but that was not the issue because he didnt mind her going on him. so my poor babyneeds lots of love that we will give him. my dad is just going to keep visiting and walking him and everything to try and gain Capitan's trust. so hopefully everything goes well.. we know it will take time. he is a very gentle horse but you can tell that he is scared sometimes. my poor baby... :(

Its lovely that he has a bond with you already. He'll come round to liking your dad eventually, if your dad is spending alot of time with him they will soon start to bond, when he realises your dad is a nice kind man.
Keep us posted!
