I finally got my first horse!

I finally got my first horse, and I'm so excited! She is coming on Thursday or Friday(: She is a 9 year old, registered Appaloosa names Misti, her registered name is Royal Mystique. She has had over $2,000 training put into her, and is valued at over $3,500, but we got her for less than $1,000. (We know her owner so we got a deal.)

She is a beautiful light bay, with no Appy markings! She will be boarded near my house, and I am going out 7 days a week, and riding 5 days a week. I am going to spend some time with her and start forming a bond before I ride her. I want to give her time to be less anxious! The last picture is of me and the owner after signing the papers!

Do any of you have any tips? They would be greatly appreciated.

She's my favorite color ever!

Her face looks very Arab/dainty.
