I'm new here, as the title suggests. I've been hanging around for a few weeks so I decided to make myself an account so I can get in on all the topics and conversations I'm a part of some other forums (horse and otherwise), but I feel kinda drawn to this one. I love the "atmosphere" and the community-it just feels different than the others.
I'll spare you the boring details but just say that I live on a farm and amongst our mob of horses are the two of mine. As you can tell from my username, I love pintos (I actually got the idea from another member on here-equinephile, I think-I hope (s)he doesn't mind me using the idea). Both my horses are pinto mares, and they're a nice, quiet, sane pair that I'm really happy with.
I'm posting my introduction in the trail section because I do a lot of trail riding with them and this is the forum I'm most likely to be posting in often. The younger mare still needs experience, so when I'm not working this summer I'm hoping to put in lots of miles with my two and get them to both be trail champs by the year's end. Next summer I'm hoping to take the pair of them camping up north.
Anyways, here's a few pictures of a ride from a few weeks ago on my older mare (she's a pony, that's why I look so big on her). Actually, my other mare is almost technically a pony too. She's right on the horse/pony dividing mark.....I like small horses. The shorter, stockier and more barrel-shaped they are, the better, in my opinion Anyways, happy trails!
