What breed is she? Arab/Appy? Pretty Pretty!!
Nice 'riding boots' ya got there :P But I don't blame you, I've ridden out in the fields with flips flops. I know, shame on me xD

She is a registered Quarter Horse.
I have very arthritic feet and today was one of those days that I just couldn't put anything else on my feet, they hurt that bad. I'm going to buy a pair of paddock shoes and try those. Just have to save up the money for them!

She is so beautiful! I am jealous, and I love her color!

Looks like you two are working well together. I can't wait to see more pics!

very nice! I love how she keeps looking at the camera

7Ponies 05-28-2009 06:07 PM

Thanks Tennessee. She's a Red Roan. Her momma was a chestnut and her dad was a Palomino. She was trying real hard to be a Palomino, but it just went a wee bit wrong, LOL! BTW, I am thinking of moving to Tennessee, what part do you live in? I'm currently looking in the Eastern part, near Knoxville, or maybe the Crossville area.

Thanks rottenweiler, she HATES the camera, that's why she keeps looking at it :) Of course, I have a Nikon DSLR with a 70-300 lens on it, so it does look rather intimidating to her :)

Ariat has some comfortable riding boots... If all else fails, Inserts work.

BTW-you guys look great. She's a real cutie.

I went to a foot doctor, and he prescribed inserts (orthotics). They hurt worse wearing them... they were hard leather slabs. I need something padded, LOL. I actually got some cheap inserts and cut them myself to fit my shoe, and that helps more than anything.

I am looking at an Ariat paddock boot. Gotta save the $$$ though :)

How are you doing your leg cues to get her to turn. I keep pressure on the inside. If he is sluggish, I tap with the outside. He is on the sluggish side. I rode today. He was ENERGETIC at first. We did lots of turns and trotting. I am 4 years back into riding after 20 off. I feel like a total beginner. You have a beautiful horse and you two look great together.
