You and Your Horse

Your Name:
Rachel

Your Age:
17

Your Horse..’s Name:
Robbie, Robert, R-Bob

Show Name:
Rock Steady

Discipline:
Hunter/Jumper/Eq

Bad Habits:
He nibbles/bites/grabs everything he can get his mouth. XD

Markings:
Dapple Grey with a snip on his nosie.

Gender:
Gelding

Age:
5 turning 6 nest year.

Breed:
Dutch Warmblood

History:
He was bred, born and raised in BC, Canada. He was broke as a 3 year old, and trained perfectly up until he was put up for sale. My trainer bought him as a re-sale horse and shipped him to Alberta after only seeing his sale video. I was looking for a new horse to buy at the time and my trainer had me in mind when she purchased him. So I tried him out when he arrived and hated him at first. I actually refused to ride him when I first saw him. He was this small, scruffy, baby-looking thing and I wanted nothing to do with him. My trainer finally got me on him, and after that ride, I've loved him ever since. As soon as he took that first step and jump, nothing else mattered. Not his small size, his ugly, scruffy coat or how gawky he looked. He was the kindest, smartest, most trying and loving horse I've ever met. Plus, he could jump the moon and more. We bought him 2 weeks later and over the time I've had him, he's tranformed from this ugly 15.2hh thing to a gorgeous 16.2hh warmblood that has won everything in the Alberta show circut. :]

Favorite Treats:
Anything...apples, wood, mittens, fingers, etc.

Home:
WillowGrove Stables

Your Horse

Buck?:
Only when we jump a bit bigger and he really puts effort into it. Then he feels all proud of himself and plays around. :3

Rear?:
Nope, never.

Jump?:
Yuppers. Easily the nicest jumping horse I've ever ridden. This horse is honestly has the scopiest and roundest jump ever.

Load Easily?:
Very. He just walks right in.

Greenie or Push Button?:
For only being 5, he acts like a school master. Of course he has his baby days, but he's amazing 70% of the time. It makes me happy at how well trained he is. :]

Even Seriously Injured/Sick?:
Yes. 3 weeks after we bought him, he coliced really, really badly. We were in the middle of a lesson, he was acting fine and then he went down...with me on him. I was freaking out and then we called the vet. He tried going down to roll every 2 mins so the vet had to dope him up really good when they got there. He was rushed to the vet clinic and was prepped for surgery. They weren't even sure if he'd even make it his guts were twisted so bad. I stayed with him as long as I could and then went home with vet talking to me on the phone as I waited at home wondering if he was still alive. Thankfully he ended up having a miraculous recovery, didn't need surgery (even though he was shaved and ready to go) and was back to work a week later. Scariest day of my life, but mine and Robbie's bond have never been stronger due to that day and how I was with him through his time of need.

Like Human Food?:
Yuppers.

Saddle:
Stubben, I can't remember what kind but it's CC.

Pad Color:
Navy blue, baby blue, burgandy or white. He also gets spoiled with a Mattes. :]

Halter Color:
Leather

Lead Color?:
Black

Lunge Well?:
Hahaha, he feels no need to pointlessly go around in a circle. So if he has excess anergy, we play tag or hide and seek.

Done Something Other Than Regular Discipline?:
Not really...?

Have Good Manners?:
Pretty good. He is fairly mouthy but that's about it. He doesn't bite, but he likes to "taste" things haha,

Bite?:
No really. More like nibble or suck. XD

Good With Children?:
Very good. He loves children and other animals. He's a very social horse and loves to "play" with kids. :]

School Horse?:
Nope.

Good With Strangers?:
Yup yup.

Get Pampered?:
Very. XD

Love What He Does?:
He loves loves loves to jump. :]

Personality Traits:
He's a super huge suck. He loves attention and will do any kind of cute behavior to get it. He loves to snuggle and give kisses along with hugs. :] He's like an overgrown dog. But he also knows his boundaries.

Love His Home?:
Kinda. It's kind of a human name but I think it suits him. Plus, there are so many variations of Robbie so I kind of like it. :]

Stall Buddies?:
My best friend's horse Dash, another baby at the barn Sequel and and horse in his pen Dawson.

[I have two horses, so Ricci's responses will be in purple, Gracie's will be in pink.]

You and Your Horse

Your Name:
Leigha.

Your Age:
20.

Your Horse’s Name:
Ricci.
Gracie.

Show Name:
Impressive Raquel.
Goodness Gracious.

Discipline:
Dressage in the pasture, trails, a little jumping.
Being a baby.

Bad Habits:
Does not like straight-loads.
Pushy, believes she can fit through anything if her nose fits.

Markings:
Black & White Tobiano.
Bay.

Gender:
Mare.
Filly.

Age:
17 years.
16 months.

Breed:
Paint.
Quarter Horse.

History:
Ricci spent quite a few years doing WP in Paint shows. Doing them well, I might add. I'm her second owner, the lady who sold her to me got her as a weanling. She's had two babies, no health problems [not even colic, knock on all the wood in the world].
I got Gracie as a 7-month-old from a friend at work. Her history mostly includes growing. o_O

Favorite Treats:
There is a certain brand of apple-flavored treats that Ricci prefers, but she'll take anything. I don't remember what brand, but I recognize the bag.
Gracie loves bananas and popsicles.

Home:
They share a pasture with my friend's horse at Ricci's previous owner's property.

Does Your Horse

Buck?:
Hardly, it's more like Ricci... pretends.
Gracie loves to run and buck and fart every morning before breakfast.

Rear?:
They only rear at each other in the pasture.

Jump?:
Ricci has jumped random branches on the trail, and quite enjoys it.
Gracie's still young, I haven't tried.

Load Easily?:
In a slant-load? Yes. A straight-load? No.
Like a dream.

Greenie or Push Button?:
Neither. Ricci is the perfect amount of challenge.
Very, VERY green, lol.

Ever Seriously Injured/Sick?:
No. [knocks on all the wood in the world]

Like Human Food?:
Ricci gets hard candies.
Gracie falls over herself trying to get to a banana, she loves them so much.

Saddle:
Lancer? A close contact. And some sort of western saddle I borrow from her previous owner.
None.

Pad Color:
Yellow.
None.

Halter Color:
Yellow, and a black and white leather one.
Pink, and a black leather one.

Lead Color?:
Yellow or black.
Pink or black.

Lunge Well?:
Perfectly.
Hasn't been taught.

Done Something Other Than Regular Discipline?:
No?

Have Good Manners?:
Impeccable manners.
Gracie's a baby, what do you expect? She's good for her age.

Bite?:
Never.
She tried once, and she didn't like my reaction. Hasn't tried since, just gets a mad face.

Good With Children?:
Ricci loves all humans. She's a great kid's horse.
Gracie is pretty good, it was a 10ish year old girl that taught her to halter, lead, tie, pick feet, etc, and my 11 year old sister can handle her pretty well.

School Horse?:
She could be, but there's no way I'm sharing.
Nope.

Good With Strangers?:
Yes.
Not so much.

Get Pampered?:
Definitely, times two.

Love What He Does?:
Ricci loves to be worked, she gets depressed if I don't ride her often enough, and is always the best behaved after time off. It's like she's showing me she's good and I shouldn't punish her by not riding.
Gracie gets to run and buck and fart in a pasture, only puts up with the occasional groom or pony trail ride. What's not to love?

Personality Traits:
Ricci is a pocket pony, she loves to cuddle.
Gracie wants to be a pocket pony but I won't let her until she learns to respect my space. She's mostly a defiant little snot.

Love His Home?:
Ricci's lived in the same place since she was weaned.
Gracie seems to like it okay.

Stall Buddies?:
None of the stalls are next to each other. Ricci's and Gracie's are across from each other, the third is on Gracie's side with the hay room in between.

Friends At Home?:
Each other and my friend's horse, Maizy.

Past Home?:
The breeder's in Oregon.
With her pony parents up the road from the place she's at.

Of course.

You and Your Horse

Your Name:
Bree

Your Age:
21

Your Horse..’s Name:
Amir

Show Name:
Poede Amir El Zham

Discipline:
He's going to be an all rounder, but I will mainly be eventing him.

Bad Habits:
He tried to lay down when you pick out his front feet and he's learned to pee on the round bale from one of the other ponies

Markings:
4 white socks and a blaze

Gender:
Gelding

Age:
Just turned 3 in October

Breed:
Egyptian Arab

History:
I've had him since August. I got him a few weeks after he was broken in. I would have rather waited til he was 3 to break but what can ya do. I've taken him to 2 shows and at his first gymkhana (no speed or jumping) he got 3 3rd places which I was really happy with. He's going to make a fantastic horse when he's older.

Favorite Treats:
Pretty much everything he can get his mits on

Home:
My friends house

Your Horse

Buck?:
He has a couple times but that's coz he's young and confused about whats going on.

Rear?:
He rears at shows because he's not with his buddies but they're not very big at all. 10cm if lucky. I want to break this habbit before he gets stupid with it though.

Jump?:
When he was being broken in the stupid breaker was jumping him at 70cm. I am waiting. He's jumped over ground poles and I must admit, he has a nice jump lol

Load Easily?:
YES! That was one of the main things I wanted when I was horse shopping. My last horse would kill everyone in sight before putting a foot on the ramp :evil:

Greenie or Push Button?:
Lol, very very green. But well behaved.

Even Seriously Injured/Sick?:
No, and he's never going to be. If he does, I'll kick his but :p

Halter Color:
Purple

Lead Color?:
Purple

Lunge Well?:
Incredibly.

Done Something Other Than Regular Discipline?:
No

Have Good Manners?:
The only thing he really lacks is the personal space rule...

Bite?:
He licks your hands and then starts to wiggle his lips on you and then eventually he will nip. My friends children find this amusing (until they actually get bitten that is) and let him do it no matter how many times they get in trouble for it. It's hard to train him out of it.

Good With Children?:
My friends 12 year old daughter used to ride him a couple times a week for me while I'm at work coz her old horse had back issues. She now had a little toad of a horse to train for herself.

School Horse?:
No

Good With Strangers?:
He loves people

Get Pampered?:
Only every day I see him

Love What He Does?:
So long as he gets attention, I don't think he cares :p

Personality Traits:
He's an over grown puppy. He would sit on your lap if he could.

Yes. He has 4 ponies to play with and 4 big hores to annoy.

Cash. They're stabled to eat and that's it.
