Apollo was the first horse I bought with my own money back in January of 2013. I don't have him anymore, but this was taken from the day I sealed the deal and purchased him at 3 going on 4 years old.

My first horse--lease, not owner. D is the first horse I could ever use the work "mine" with in any way.

When I bestride him, I soar. I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes” — Shakespeare

Don’t know if this counts or not. This is Trigger. I used to gallop him across the yard or floor. I don’t know how many times my dad replaced the frame and springs. But, all of my siblings rode him just as hard. I am the eldest of 6. The mended plastic body is still in my dad’s shed.

My first actual horse was a green broke 2 year old Shetland pony given to me by my grandfather. My sister has some photos of him, but none are digitized.

My first horse as an adult. This is Bella my saddlebred mare that was given to me. We had a few good years before I had to have her euthanized due to declining health. This horse taught me so much.

I have two "first horses", but I guess I'll post the horse sized one/no longer own horse instead.
Unfortunately, original pictures are deeply buried under countless thousands of pics in my external hard drive...

This is Callie, 15h mare I used to have.

My first horse that was 'all mine' and purchased, shown here at age 32 or 33. I got him when we were both 10 years old.

I rode for quite a long time and had several leases before I owned this boy, but he was my first horse that I owned (or rather my parents owned because I was 14, but he was mine).

My first horse was a gift after he threw me and I got a ride to the ER ... He was a 4 yo Arab Gelding that supposedly had 4 months of training. Yea, not likely. Anyway, I told the friend who gave him to me that he needed to find someone to ride him before I'd get on him again. He did, but we still had some "exciting" times. In the end, he was a great horse. He was 4 when I got him. He died with me at 28. He is about 20 in this pix:
