Well, I thought I'd finally start my own journal. I'll start with me:
My name is Danielle. I am a 16 year old girl who lives in South Africa. I am completely horse crazy. I own 6 horses, and have been riding for about 6 years (ironic isnt it lol?). I have a stutter, but you wouldnt think it with how much I talk LOL!!
Next my best friends: My horses... Arrow Star:
Arrow is a brown, 18 year old TB mare. She can get quite skittish, but is very sweet. She is very very "fat", as her stomach muscles went slack from breeding. She doesnt have jumping potentioal, but she is a great lesson horse for children. Her trot can be very slow if you ask her, and her canter is lovely, although you have to ask alot for her to canter!! She hates being caught and trots around the whole field!!! But I still think she's awsome!! Arrow Star.jpg Bishop:
Bishop only has 1 eye, we had to remove the other eye due to injury. He is an absolute honey bunny, who can do it all. He is a schoolmaster, and I don't ride him much, so others do. He took me and 1 of my friends to our first shows, and we love him!!! He is a bay, 22 year old TB gelding whom we retired last month :) DSCN3550.jpg Silver Sabre:
Silver is a bay, 14 year old TB mare. She is still learning, but is able to jump 80cm. She can get quite hot, but she is very sweet and gentle if ridden right. Her canter is abit unsmooth, but other then that she is a pleasure to ride. Silver Saber.jpg Irish Dream:
Irish Dream is a lovely little mare. She is a bay, 15 year old TB mare. She loves going FAST, and sometimes hets too hot for me, so my riding instructer rides her and is training her to be a polocrosse pony. Then after that's done, I am going to learn to handle her, learn to play polocrosse, and play with her, lol yay!! Irish Dream.jpg Love Story: Lol, what can I say about my beast? She is a dark bay, 12 year old TB mare. She is a honey of a horse that is really sweet. She gets quite impatient when riding, she hates going slow... She is an awsome jumper, and can jump up to 1 20m. She is my showjumper, and my bestest best friend :). She has the biggest heart, and will reallt try anything just to please me. DSCN3276.jpg Traces of Gold: Traces is a bay, 14 year old TB mare. She is a little monkey =). I was training her to jump, when she got AHS. She is fine now, and has really picked up weight. I have started riding her again, mostly gentle rides with some trotting and alot of walking. She is a honey, always so sweet and gentle, I let 3 year olds ride her. Once she is fit I'll start jumping her and cantering her again, which she should do with ease. The nice thing about Traces is she is like a car; you put her in walk, she stays in walk, you put her in trot, she stays in trot, etc. Lol I love this little mare
