Sharing pics and stories of the first ride on your horse

Yesterday I FINALLY got on my new boy. After a tumultuous couple of weeks, I cannot explain how wonderful it felt! My fiance got a bunch of pics, but only some are flattering(barely) lol! So I will share the best of them. We all know that face we make while riding, sometimes isn't the cutest Loki is a 10 year old 15 hh paint gelding, who was supposedly a trail horse before I acquired him. And boy does he get mad when you try to use your leg or even have any slight contact. It's something to work on, but he really was a good boy, and my weight didn't affect him in the slightest. Feel free to share pics and stories of the first ride on your horse/horses as well

Lovely photos, ladies. (:

I rode my horse for the first time when he was being used as a lesson horse, and I had no idea that we would end up together :> #soulmates xD

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Zexious: I'm in the same boat with my horse! After working for her for 10 years, the trainer finally ended up giving him to me because I was the only one who really liked him. Funny how things like that work out.

You're paint is adorable! I bet you guys are going to have loads of fun :)

^That's awesome! And nearly exactly the way my story panned out!

Granted, I had only been riding with that program for about a year or two. I sold my last horse (a filly I had trained from the time she was eight months old), and alerted my trainer that I would like to begin horse shopping.
We looked for a couple of months and nothing seemed to work out. Show season would be coming up in a few months, and my trainer gave me Gator so I could compete. (:

This was my first ride on my TWH JR. He is so much fun to ride...He was my main trail ride and the one I did mountain riding on. But he blew his stifle out a few years back. So he is semi retired. I just started riding him again on the flat. So far so good.



And my MFT Reno.. He replaced JR and has been the best horse for anything you want to do with him. The grand kids love riding him and he takes care of them.

This is Dollar and I. It's just some screen shots from a video.. (not our very first ride.. That video had me falling off that day, and going to the ER lol) We've been working really hard, and I think we're getting better. He's a QH cross, and abot 16.1.

This is my first ever ride on Stitch! The day I went to test ride him. He came home with me that day for a week trial and I just kept him xD

He has come so far in the 8 months I've owned him. We will be making our debut in the hunter ring next month!
