Exclamation "Pennygirls"

Hello everyone!

Since a few weeks one of my Dutch horse friends started talking about pennygirls. I wonder what they were. When she told me, I noticed I've had lots of encounters with those girls. I decided to open a thread about it to hear if you guys ever had experience with them. Let's first say what they are.

Penny girls

-Penny girls love "abused" horses and wants to save them.

-A penny girl thinks they know how to treat a wounded horse with herbs or other weird stuff they've seen in movies.

-A penny girl thinks a horse should be brushed and played with the entire time, especially if it are foals, yearlings or pregnant mares.

-Like I said, penny girls love braiding and doing stuff with the horse their manes and tail.

-Some penny girls want to use auxiliary reins, long whips and persuaders and think they're experienced enough to use them.

-Mostly they're young girls (9-14 year old) who have a lot of fantasy.

-Penny girls often think they are the cliche protagonist of a movie where they tame a wild horse that only THEY can ride on.

-Penny girls are often inexperienced and don't know that riding without a saddle and having a lack of experience can be dangerous.

I hope that we can have a bit of fun with sharing our experiences. Btw, this isn't meant to be absolutely serious. Please don't hate on anyone!

Aw. Then I love "penny girls!"

My youngest was one. She loved on every horse on the place, and they seemed to return the feeling. Even the toughest. Great memories.

Of course, it was at least in part because she didn't require much of them. When she grew up and went pro reality set in.

May we always have dreamers.

I was the girl who wanted to buy every pathetic looking horse in the auction.

I was the girl who bought the skinny pathetic pony that my mother and I somehow arranged for a dealer to bring to our house. She was (probably still is) the best equine Iíve ever owned

I learnt a lot about Ďherbalí medicines from the older generations I grew up around.

I groomed my foals and broodmares. Those foals all grew up to be well mannered and easy to break.

I spent hours plaiting and braiding - the practice came in very useful when I worked on a show/hunting yard.

I rode my imaginary Champion and Flicka and Black Beauty to school every day.

I rode without saddles and without bridles and stood up on my ponies backs, raced friends along a narrow canal path, jumped hedges without knowing what was on the other side, was always the first to volunteer to get on the totally unknown ponies that turned up on the yard I used to hang out at.

I had my fair share of accidents but I donít regret a single minute of it!

Just winging it is not a plan
