Se pääsky toi kesän eteiseen, se antoi rauhan sydämeen,
ja lehahti sitten siivilleen, ja päästi pois kahleet.
Ja se loistaa, minne ikinä meen, se mukana kulkee

Trigger. Pasture dirty, summer grass fat, dappled, and no cares in the world, last summer. Not the first horse to be in the family, but the first one to be mine and mine alone.

And I may be his first human...

My first horse when I was 12 - in 1959.

Goldie, a Palomino mare presented us with Sonny on the left in May, 1960. He was about eight weeks? I was 13.

The sellers had no idea Goldie was in foal, but they tried to make us give Sonny to them because they knew the sire was their registered Arab. That, or give them cash. My granddad took care of that in a big hurry. I kept the colt and the mare, and they did not get any cash, lollol

My first horse was an OTTB, that I ended up having to re-home after only a few months because I quickly realized I was seriously over-mounted. He went on to become a quite the successful eventer down south, unfortunately I don’t have any photos of him

I consider Chase my first “real” horse, because I’ve had him for a few years now and he’s not going anywhere, any time soon :)

My first horse was Darcel. She was a saint of a horse, middle aged with some sort of issue which kept her from her job as a team roper. I don’t remember what the matter was.

My mother took this picture of my mare and me. I would con her over to the fence after she let me bridle her, and I would bail from the fence to her back. I’d take off and lope around the pivot, and I would fall off most times about half way. Then I’d be stuck walking and leading the mare the mile back to the nearest fence to try again. :)

I was always with that mare. I actually remember getting this picture taken. My mom told me to walk her onto the concrete and try standing up. It was the beginning of many later tricks.

My first horse, Tara's Isabel, is the one that got me back into horses as an adult, and introduced me to the world of Morgans, which I have come to love. We dabbled in low level dressage and soon turned into "happy hackers." She is coming 26 years old later this spring and is happily retired here at home.
