Oh Allison, I love the photo of you on the chestnut! You're so pretty and the horse is stunning. :)

Yeah, my horse Barcoo and I have given everything a go (even though I specialise in dressage now). :p I'm kinda sad that I don't have pics of us doing mounted games, polocross, eventing, trail riding or showing.

Jumping


Campdrafting


Sporting (you can't see the poles, but they are there)


Dressage


Barrel Racing

Hoping to get back in the saddle next week. I'm sure there will be pics taken on the first day I ride Aires. lol I'm pretty darned sure almost the whole barn will turn out for that one (he's one of the most noticeable/recognizable horse on the property and anyone who is there more than once a month has followed his training and heard about his amazingness from the BO and the trainer ).

In the meantime, would a couple pics of the trainer riding my boy suffice until then? :-D
Doing his best impression of a dressage horse (doesn't look too bad, really!):

Cantering (didn't do too much, but the trainer said as soon as she kissed at him to canter, he didn't hesitate...all those hours in the round pen must have paid off!):

Poor guy could barely see.

He loved to be in shows though. The more attention he got the bigger he could puff up his small 15.2 frame.

He does look like he enjoyed it! He's a handsome devil.

Thumbs up Really enjoying this thread!

It's really great to see people riding in their own style or several styles. lol

Pic is of me riding Sienna in the paddock about 6 months after I rescued her. She was 30 and I was 40 when this was taken. She still has waaaay more energy than me.

No matter what road I travel, I'm going home and if I'm riding a horse I am halfway there.

Hi guys! Just got caught up with this post again. YES, it was taken near the rim, outside of Show Low, AZ.

Do you get to just ride off your property into a backdrop like that, or do you haul out to different places a lot?
Thank you for the compliment. A friend trailered me out to this spot, but I can and do ride to the national forest from our land. We have great riding out here!

Really liking this thread. Cool to put faces to names.

Spyder - both of your guys are quite handsome! Love the 3rd photo, his head & neck are drool worthy.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
