    Pepper is a 14 year old mostly foundation Quarter Horse mare. She's 15.1hh and has a lovely personality. Recently, I figured out (with much speculation and much help from forum members) that she has EPSM. Purchased for $500, Pepper came to us with terrible teeth, terrible body condition, and...

Here's a little background for you: I grew up around AQHA/APHA show horses and fell in love. I did chores around the house growing up to pay for riding lessons, and at some point, for...

    So for a while I have been kind of working with a trainer kind of not. It was really, more than anything else, her just letting me exercise her horses/do barn chores for riding time and maybe a little critique every once and a while. She really was a great lady but I obviously wasn't learning...

If I...

    I thought that this could be a good way to map my progress, so here goes. My horse is an 18 yr old purebred arab, even though he doesn't look it. I have his papers to back me up haha. I've owned him since November 2011, but I was working with him for about a year before I brought him. He was...

    Lakota is a 4 year old palomino Quarter Horse gelding. He's completed all of his ground work training, and he is going to be broke to ride this summer. Before I send him off to the trainer, I'm going to try to teach him some tricks. The ones I want to teach him are: "Say yes" "Say no" "Pick it...

    Well, I guess I might as well start a journal here. I'm not sure where else to write this stuff down, since my friends are either not aware that I own a horse or think that I'm crazy already...or both. Plus my husband is tired of hearing about Kiera! I am a new horse owner and I am fairly new...
  18. Art and Craft Work
    Since I just started up with drawing horses again, I thought I should make a journal to post updates. I love feedback so feel free to give any suggestions or critique. For some background, when I was a kid I always wanted to be an artist, and being a "horse crazy" girl, horses were one of...
