- Wow, Ginger looks great! Your skills are at a much higher level than mine. I'm just a backyard rider. I feel lucky that I can provide a happy place for my horses and that when I am not working, I get to ride and train.
We live in Southern Oregon, a days drive North from you.
Your place looks amazing! I can see the ocean and it looks like you ride on the hills above the beach. I see big trees around your round pen. Where are you, Half Moon Bay? Can you ride out from your place to the hills you were on with Ginger?
Pretty cool, Ian.
- Thanks for asking. :) She's a 10 year-old Thoroughbred/Belgian cross that my parents raised and gave to me a few years ago. Her breeding is an interesting combination as her sire was a really solid, quiet carriage horse and her dam was off the track, so some days I'm riding a Belgian and other days a racehorse! I really enjoy her though and have learned a lot having her in my life.
Here's a highlight I made awhile back. Please excuse our atrocious spinning, I know we weren't in great form on that one lol. :P
What part of Oregon you guys from? Some beautiful country up there.

Posted On: 05-16-2015, 06:27 PMFoxtail Ranch liked post by BlueSpark On thread : Mia's last day with bsmsI'm opposed to people who buy a horse, give a half a$$ed try and sell it on because they can't be bothered to give it some effort.

Posted On: 05-16-2015, 07:50 PMI've had Mia since 2008. I was told she was the perfect horse for a beginner when I got her. She wasn't...and she was. She was largely unbroken, as it turned out, and had a very intense personality....Liked On: 05-17-2015, 08:33 PM
Posted On: 05-16-2015, 05:01 PMSmilie, it wasn't a stare, it was a picture thought often when I was two stables away. (We had vertical bars so the horses could see the length of the barn.) Skipper was a big horse and would do a...Liked On: 05-17-2015, 03:09 PM

Posted On: 05-14-2015, 07:09 PMI played around with 'mind pictures' quite a lot. The horses were always on a deep bed of shavings or straw. I would skip out any droppings. There would often be more than one pile and I would...Liked On: 05-17-2015, 03:00 PM
