    These photos are all great! I think the whole NH people don't ride thing Is that we see a lot of them that just lunge lunge lunge and ride for a short amount of time. Not all do, but I have seen a fair share of them.

    I have always tried to do a little bit of everything with my boy. We started out western / trail riding got into Barrels and gymkhana, then moved into english / jumpers. We still have a long ways to go, but its a fun journey.

    Trail riding a few years ago. Nice dirt road with trees for shade.

    Barrel Practice

    Flat work, ignore me, it was a year ago when I started to take my english riding seriously. He sure looks fab though <3

    He is a rather powerful jumper.

    Usandpets, I want to go riding in the Badlands so badly one day. I did once when I was about 13 on those trail rides they offer. Fun, but not nearly as much as it would be if I was adventuring through the park.

    Anyway, my pictures! I'm not exactly NH either. I certainly don't follow any particular trainer, but I've read about different techniques and have done join-ups with my mare. These pictures are at the summer camp I work at. Unfortunately, it's over for the summer, so I don't have these pastures to ride in anymore. However, I'm not required to wear a helmet until next summer! (Not a fan, but we're not getting into that debate here.) These are also the only pictures I have of me riding Abby.

    Thanks! Those pictures are at rather flattering angles, to be honest. She has zero topline and her hindend has less muscle than I would prefer.. I plan to start her on a muscle building supplement after I get the samples from SmartPak to see which she'll eat.

    A post from one who is not in with the beautiful crowd here.

    I was looking for a photo from my fear of camera years, I was on Pengie the nasty tempered Black & White mare in the pic below. It was of a line up of a lot of horses where we got 2nd place in barrels at a Fun Show:

    I didn't find it.

    But, I did find these from the following year, where I also got a second place but in Walk-Trot HUS and Equitation in a class of about 5 of the under-12 year old students.

    Frisco is a Standardbred I worked with for a year or more, he was unmanagable and his owner could not ride him. Then she went on a high risk maternity leave, and I babysat him until the baby was about 6 mo old.

    She returned to the barn but still would not ride him, until this fun show which she came to watch. I gave her both the red ribbons, he did so well that she began again and has been going strong ever since.

    A small victory.

    So my birthday was last week and my sister asked if I had a pic I wanted her to do a 'painting' of (she is a photojournalist).

    I sent her the pic I posted in the first post when I started this thread and asked if she could even take out the sagging breast strap.

    She sent this back to me, looks like she took out a few other things that were sagging too !! I want a nice print out of this.

    Beautiful painting Ann!
