Most Memorable Horse-y Moment of 2013
What has been your most memorable moment or moments with your horse/horses in 2013? Did you achieve a major goal or win at a big show? Share your stories/experiences! And of NEED to share the pic as well.

I would say the #1 on the list for me of most memorable moments was watching my heart horse, Lindy, be a wonderful loving GREAT first time Mom. I couldn't have asked for it to go any better for her. I was proud of my little homebred baby....and have big plans for her!

We had a rough start with Phoebe with attitude and kicking and what not....but kept working with her and once she was weaned POOF problem solved. She has been a little sweet I hope that ball keeps rolling. lol

My #2 most memorable moment of 2013 was when I traded our two year old for a weanling filly (same breeder that owns Phoebe's Sire) out of a mare that I've been wanting a baby from for probably literally 8+ years. haha AND I've ALWAYS wanted a was a match made in heaven. I LOVE this little filly. She is as sweet, quiet, and gorgeous as they come. I think she might be working her way up the ladder to heart horse number two! Which I didn't think was possible. Ruby is a doll baby and I'm excited for her future as well!


Share yours!!!

My most memorable moment was falling in to a barb wire gate, because my sweet pea wouldn't stop.....happened a few times.
My other memorable experience was teaching my horse to walk, yes walk. Not gallop or trot but walk.

#1 for me has to be riding my 3 year old. She's constantly amazing me around each bend, from completing a difficult full day trail ride after 90 days under saddle, to each and every ride giving 110% and not saying no to anything. The other day I hopped on her bareback with just a halter and did some w/t work - neckreining!

A close second was my re-debut in the show ring with Ronan, the gelding I owned for about a year. I hadn't competed in about 7 years, and made my first show back at Spruce Meadows. It was an absolute blast, I can't wait to get Zoe in the show ring in 2014.

Team chasing for the first time ever (which was also our first xc competition!) fantastic fun and Hattie was a total star looking after me.

My best moment this year so far was my first jump. It was really low and my horse barely jumped it but it was a huge milestone for me. I was grinning for the rest of the lesson :D

I the most memorable for me was when we got to our new indoor arena for the winter and we rode bareback and bitless (in a halter) and we did three full circles loping without braking gait. He was perfect for me and he behaved even better without the bit and bareback than he ever has with a saddle and bit in.
I truly believe bareback and bitless is heaven.
This photo is the closest I have to when I rode - but just take the bit and bridle out of the photo and I am not holding onto his mane.
It was fantastic.
