    Almost 3 years ago I learned about and bought my first Curly horse. Her quirks and unique characteristics led me to develop drawings of horses. Initially the drawings started out as a means of satisfying my young daughter's desire to color countless pictures of horses. Since then, my skills have...

    Looking for something horsey to read at the moment-- but not wanting another girl-meets-horse and forms an amazing bond with it instantly type book. c': (Not meaning to offend anyone, I've just read so many aaa) I've never managed to find a horsey story with a male main, so I'd be super...

    I've been riding for six years and I recently took a fall which ended up breaking my neck... I broke my C1 and didn't have the knowledge it was broken until almost three weeks later :-| On August 1st I had surgery and was in the hospital for five days and four nights. So I'm two months post-op...
  5. Plus Sized Riders
    Yesterday I FINALLY got on my new boy. After a tumultuous couple of weeks, I cannot explain how wonderful it felt! My fiance got a bunch of pics, but only some are flattering(barely) lol! So I will share the best of them. We all know that face we make while riding, sometimes isn't the cutest...

    Well it's about that time of year for us again! After one of the horses in the boarding barn had lice, they all got it! -.- This is quite annoying for all of us, and I could tell the person who owns where I board was embarrassed however this can't be prevented. I just wanted to know some of your...

If anyone has any good short stories about a horse that can be found online please mention the title or...
  8. Horse Trainers
    I'm not sure if this is in the right place or not but I just have to set a little thank you to my trainer. We've been with her for years, boarded with her, and I'm apprenticing under her all that I can before/while I'm up at vet school. I consider her a family friend and it's icing on the cake...

    As some of you know, I am between states right now. My parents live in Texas, while I spend half of my time there and half of my time in Arkansas. My mom & step dad just bought a place in Texas that has a few acres on it, and they are talking about buying me a horse to put on it. While my mom...

    Seems like most people have an experience with a naughty little pony who really likes to test your riding skills! When I was nine I leased a little white Welsh pony for a couple years who would pretend to be a little angel and than suddenly decide it was time for me to go flying. He could buck...

    Please no comments on about how bars aren't bad and don't constrict view, and stables at home are better than the ones at shows, and how all stables turn their horses out for 6 hours every day ETC., these are my opinion. And i'm not accusing stables of this! The door slid shut with a BANG...
  13. Teen Talk
    Honestly. I mean, ugh. How do I put this? A LOT of people in middle-school, or high-school (I was in middle-school before my suspension), seem to pick their boyfriends/girlfriends by looks and their [fake] "personality". Many do it for the popularity boost. Yeah, I bet everyone reading this has...

  16. Horse Stories and Poems
    I'm trying to break into writing and as a horse lover find it sad. :cry: I can find maybe one magazine that will even accept horse fiction. It reminds me of all those frustrating horse story books. Over half the stories were excerpts from larger books. Then if you were interested you couldn't...
