Hiii from Arkansas!
 
Hi there! =) I'm Abby, I live in north central Arkansas. I have 9 horses, and have been riding my entire life. I rode western until 2007, but in 2007 I was finally able to find an english instructor and I began my dream of learning to ride english! (My area is absolutely nothing but rodeo and barrel racing.) English is now my main discipline. I'm a Senior in High School, preparing for the adventure of college... I plan on attending out of state. Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY is looking very probable at the moment.

I used to love being a member of horse forums. I really like to read and learn from others, and also lend a helping hand when I can. But sadly the forum I used to be a regular member at became rather overrun with spam bots... so after being forum-less for a while, I started a search for another forum that I might find to be as nice and cozy as my old one. =) I'm hoping I have found it here!

I know everyone likes pictures, so here are my ponies. =)

UA Strait Up Details, AKA "Jack". He is a QH Appendix yearling, he'll turn two on May 2nd. =)

Rocky, an 11 year old Paint gelding. He is my main riding horse. I have started him English since I started lessons.

Chuck, a 30-some year old Missouri Fox Trotter gelding. He's the kind of horse you can put a small child and trust him not to do a thing, even if you lit a firecracker under his tail.

Buford, a 9 year old Tennessee Walking Horse gelding.

Darlin, a 20 year old mare - the only mare we have.

Cheeto, a 30 year old Tennessee Walking Horse. He is the baby of the mare I learned to ride on years ago, Penny.

Poker, a Tennessee Walking Horse/QH cross. He's Cheeto's brother, only a couple years older than him. Poker was a baby that accompanied Penny when my dad bought her.

Toby, my mom's horse, a 9 year old Racking horse. This picture defines him perfectly... :-|

Peanut, a Belgian stallion. My grandfather used Belgian drafts as workhorses back in the day, and Peanut is the last of his herd.

And for good measure... here's Jack and I. =)

Hi Cassidy! Nice to meet ya!
I was amazed by all of the threads of posters from Arkansas on the Meet the Community board. I'm used to being the only Arkansan around!

More Arkansans! I'm from around Central Arkansas, as well! I have 3 horses, but one is legally mine and the other two are legally my grandpa's. Spirit, Rocky, and now Roani.

Hey guys! So glad to see more hillbillies posting!

Welcome to the forum and I can't wait to hear more about your adventures.
I'm up above I-40 in the Ozark National Forest, a trail rider. Love this state, love this area, and so glad there are more of us on here!
