    I never expected my son to really be into horses, but after 5 months of lessons, he is hooked! The only problem is I ride western & he's doing english. I have to learn everything right along with him. The horse he is currently ridding is a paint/thoroughbred that is 16.2 hands. He started learning his two point position last week. I'm terrified of him jumping, bet he can't wait to do it

    He looks great up there litrella!

    I think that DD has been listening and watching more than I thought. She helped bring horses in last night and was leading Stubby in and he got a bit jiggy (in place, he's knows he dare not get ahead lol) and she gets all huffy and turns into him and backs him up efficiently while saying "Now listen here old man, I'm the boss, slow your roll."

    My little world came crumbling down today :(

    We sold Simba as were planning to move abroad in a few months. Paperwork processing times are about 3x longer than what the embassy had initally told me.. meaning we wont be going anywhere until quite possibly next spring.

    Anyway, I've spotted a gorgeous little bay mare who's very affordable. She's older, but been there and done that. Thought we might get through this showing season as I thought DD had a super time last season... and then rehome the pony to a friend when we move. Anyway, DD has quickly put stop to this plan and told me she wants to play FOOTBALL!!!! She lost all her confidence when we had the horses at a riding school for a short period.

    *sigh* Hubby wants to as he feels that she will get into it again when she realises there is no pressure and she can just enjoy it again.

    Gosh, that sucks. :(
    Maybe if you have a back up plan already in this place for the little mare, you could get her anyways and just let her see if she wants to go out on fun trail rides?

    We have decided to go ahead and see her, viewing her tomorrow afternoon

    Sit down before you read this: Non horsey hubby has offered to take care of the pony for her!!! And she said she wants to ride once she doesnt have to go off the lead for a while - this is do-able.

    Pony is registered with the irish show ponies, has shown all over the country. Passported and chipped.. so cross your fingers for us

    I am hoping this little one that I am carrying will have the horsey bug lol Not due for another 6 weeks, so we have quite a while to see if he/she is into horses. My husband doesn't care either way, but I think who would take it the hardest is my filly. This horse LIVES for kids. Not broke to ride yet (doing that this summer), but she loves kids coming up to her at shows to love on her. I won't push any of our kids into horses, but I can certainly cross my fingers in hopes that they will have the horsey bug!
