Hey. So I stumbled upon this horse forum by way of google. I had kept an online journal/blog thing on a different horse website, but this site looks a lot less crowded and more friendly.
So first I'll tell you about my horse! His registered name is Solanos Major Dude, and he is an American Quarter Horse. He is five years old, 14.2 HH, dark bay, and a started reiner. I am going to finish his reining training this summer. I got him in August of 2006.
I have been riding for eight years. Six years of western, and two english. I like english a lot, but I'm focusing more on western right now, even though Solanos can do both. I am the secretary of the local 4H Club, and I love it.
My name is Prarie-Girl because I live in the prairies of Canada. It's pretty cold up here right now, so it's kind of our off-season. When I grow up a bit more (I'm in my last year of highschool) I hope to move somewhere where it is a bit warmer, like Vancouver. But right now Solanos and me are stuck battling the cold. And I guess this journal will be about our progress!
