My First Horse!


Its been an extremely long time since I've been in the fourms! Well, today is a very special day... I'm celebrating Christmas!

This has to be the best Christmas of my life. My father got me my first horse! I was totally blind sighted!

I now have my first horse ever. I've been praying for this for such a long time. This little mare's name is 'Blessing.' She is a Tenessee walking horse, 15hh, nine years old, has shoes, and used to be an English pleasure show horse.

I had the wonderful chance to meet her today and get her saddle/bridle put together. The only reason I don't like new tack, it's so stiff lol. I love my little mare sooo much. I'll be riding her with a English saddle and bridle. I do have to get a new girth (the one it came with absolutely sucks). It'll work for now, though.

Do you all have any ideas of what I can do with her? I'm using as a English pleasure horse, and I'm thinking about playing some games with her tomorrow (parelli games).

We need pics. Here's my first, only, and current horse, Pistol. Blessings is a beautiful name. That's the name of one of my favorite songs.

First off I would like to say is...congrats!!! I wish I had my very own horse at my house I stead of my Patches at my neighbors! And second, I obviously don't know if you have a stable bond with you horse and if you don't, I would do groundwork, third I would groom and talk to him/her! It's fun and bonding time!

Thanks guys! I love her solo much! I'm going to play some parelli games with her tomorrow, we'll... today (2:30 am). Here's my baby girl. Isn't she beautiful? I just love how she's a solid black. I had an amazing time brushing the mud off of her!

It wouldn't upload for some reason, so, here's a link to a picture of her.

Congrats! I was finally able to buy my very first horse last year! I did make the mistake of buying the only horse I tried out, and she was green broke so sadly I did have to part ways with her. But I still love and miss her, and get updates from her new owners! I now own an OTTB who is perfect for me <3

This is my OTTB I now own, showing off his Christmas present tack set ;]

and this is my old mare, her name was Moon, I loved her but we just sooo did not click =[

P.S. They both have halters on..because funny thing they both had/have bridling issues. She finally got over hers, and I am still working on my guys! We are almost there!! haha
