I was curious how many horses everyone has ridden?
Are they lesson horses?
Horses you train?
Horses you have shown on?
I thought it would be interesting to see how many horses everyone thinks they have ridden be it 1 or 1,000!
I used to keep track of all the horses I've ridden. What I liked and disliked about them. Any quirks they had. Somewhere in one of my moves I lost the list.
As I think back on it, I remember most of the horses names, but only 2 or 3 people I've ridden with from when I was younger.
Very first lesson horse was Dr. Cox. He was great! Another favorite was Zorba, a beautiful dark brown almost black gelding with 4 white socks. He was gorgeous! Oberon, a gentle thoroughbred that seemed to float on air.
There were many horses that went through the stables I rode at. It was a big lesson barn. So occasionally we would get to ride a boarders horse. Those were great lessons. My favorite was Blue.. A true black Morgan, so dark he had a blue sheen. Only a few of us got to ride him. Talk about cloud 9.
Then for a span of about 13 years my own horse, and occasional friends horse, or the trainers prospects.
When my guy passed away, back to lesson horses.
Geesh... I've probably ridden well over 30 different horses, with 3 or 4 favorites.
Add in the two favorite places I've ridden... Ireland and England.
Oh the memories! Wow! Thanks for this trip down memory lane.
