Reintroduce from Ohio

Hello, I used to be on this forum often but life got in the way. I decided to reintroduce myself. I’m 20 years old from the lovely state of Ohio. I attend College for Vet Tech and certificated in Equine Science. My goal is to specialize as a Equine Vet Tech. I have two years of experience working with Standardbred in the racing business. I have been riding horses for over 11 years now. I have show western 4h events and many rodeos. At this point, between working and school, I’m mainly trail riding, but also working on training my mare for barrel racing and competitive trail riding. I’m owned by a boxer, a ball python, many fish and two horses.

Sassie is what I would call my dream horse. After selling another horse to be retired to a slower life, I went through a couple horses that never clicked with me. One ended up, knocking me off and sending me to the hospital, after deciding at the time, we couldn’t work through her problems like she needed we sold her. I wasn’t planning on replacing her with another horse that needed work, when I saw Sassie’s ad. It was love at first site, while she was also a wreck. She is fully halter bred, but an hand full. She hates any show work and they was trying to make her an western pleasure horse, so she was getting bad habits trying to avoid being rode. At this point she is still a work in process, but we have gain trust and respect. She actually enjoys being rode again, but now we got to still fix bad habits. She is an 8 year old Appaloosa mare, who stands at 15.3 hands tall. She has really put the joy into riding again even know each ride we have a battle. I took her to our first rodeo and found out she isn’t no where ready yet, but it was a learning experience. She takes a pretty experience rider most days.

King is mainly my Dad’s Tennessee walker, but he is solid black at 15.2 hands tall and 13 years old. We have owned him for many years. Originally, we was retraining him for a lady, when we fell in love with him. Since she was afraid she would never trust him, she sold him to us. He has been an challenge as he is hard head and hyper. The improvements are amazing. Anyone can ride him now, as long as he is ridden often. He is show bred like crazy, but is a solid trail horse. I have played around with the idea of showing him, but don’t think he would enjoy it. He is also buggy trained. At this point, he is on and off pasture rest. He has problems with a back leg, that is an on and off going lameness. Vet and farriers are working on figuring it out and we now have a vet who is going xray it to see if we can finally figured it out. He did this two years ago on us, and the summer off helped, then last month he came up lame again.

Thanks right now both are very happy and out of shape. My appaloosa mare is about to go back into training, but King looks like he could be out of riding for awhile longer and just enjoy life in a pasture.

Thanks I wish there pasture had tons of grass a good part is weeds, but the barn owner does a great job of making sure pasture isn't ate down to bad. Two horses on about an acre or so. Plus after hay season they get another couple acres until winter.
