Hey everyone, my name is Lisa, im 19 and I live in Ontario, Canada. I've been riding since the age of 7 and I still absolutely love it. I've done years of trail riding at a ranch I voluntered at for 3 years. I've competed in barrel racing and speed events of 2 years, then moved onto all english events such as jumping, equitation, hunters etc...

I bought my first horse, Wrangler in April of 07 as an untrained yearling. He was nearing 2 years. He was a beautiful tri-coloured tobiano that i picked out of a huge herd. I loved him the minute i layed eyes on him. He definitly had our huge fights but we've always gotten through them. I trained him myself from the ground up all by myself and I was quite pleased with the results. I took him to his first show in August of 08 and we managed to place 2nd in a class of 9 people. But sadly, shortly after i had to put him up for sale since i no longer had time for him with college and my job. I sold him in March last year to a home where they trained him to be a cow ropper and a reiner. He's been sold to another home just recently where he's started his training to be a trillium horse. Im happy i brought up quite the versitile (sp?) horse and he excelled well in multipul (sp?) disciplines! :)

^^ At our first show, he looked and did amazing :p

^^His gorgeous face <3

I bought my second horse in April of 09. Boomer was a 5 year old quarter horse gelding. I was riding him since April 07. He was quite the horse. He was shy and only liked a few people. I trained him to trust people, to collect his gates, to jump and to relax under saddle. I loved this horse. His personality was amazing. He was the next houdini thats for sure lol. I showed him summer 08 in jumping. He first time he seen actual jumps and we managed to get 2nd in a class of 11 people. I was proud. I also showed him this passing summer in all english classes and he was absolutely amazing. We placed in all our classes and he jumped beautifully. I competed for the first time in a halter class and I placed 2nd both times in a class of 15 :) Unfortunately, due to financial problems, i was forced to sell him in August. Hardest decision of my life, i miss him dearly but i know hes well loved at his new home where he does trail riding and gets completely spoiled everyday.

^^Summer 08

Just a note, i trained both my horses on my own. No coaching at all. I miss them both dearly but i know their in a loving home where they can both get the attention and love they deserve :cry:
