I'm currently working on my minor that is to go with my bachelors degree at Northeastern State University. My minor is in technology and I am currently in an advanced Microsoft class and have a large power point project that will be half of my grade for the semester. We are suppose to choose a hobby that we love and build a detailed power point for it using different effects and tools. Instead of filling 40+ slides with photos of just my one horse I thought "why not ask all of my friends on horse forum to be included and show off what they can do and what owning a horse is all about?" It can be English, Western, Hunter/Jumper, Barrels, Cutting, Poles, anything action wise and photos and videos are both welcome! If you want to include your signature or watermark on the photos or videos that is completely fine. If you can also include maybe your first name, where your representing from, maybe your horses best barrel times or highest jumps, etc. Also details about your horse, name, height, color, breed, etc. My goal is to introduce people to a completely different world of horse owners and what we are all about. Many people see horses in a pasture but have never really seen what we do with our horses or what horses are capable of. I would appreciate your help tremendously and will post the video on here if it will let me after the semester is done in May :D

This is me (Aly) and my horse Buzz. I just recently bought him in October to be my new barrel horse. He was really cheap and had been mistreated, but, he was a solid barrel horse and loved his job. I worked on him for a good solid month or so on calming him down and reminding him that he was a horse and not a working machine. We have hauled to 4 barrel races so far. The first one we didn't place because we were having saddle issues... Our second, third, and fourth races were all in Edna. The first time was an 18.5, the second time was an 18.0, and the third time was a 17.2. We were a little under 2 seconds slower than some WPRA (Women's Pro Rodeo Association) women.
Buzz is a chestnut American Quarter Horse. He stands right around 15 hands. His registered name is Jobins Diala Jet.

Good luck with your project and I hope I helped! I have TONS of other horses too, so let me know if you need any more :wink:

**BTW, I promise that the ground is tilled around these barrels! This was only in a mid lope and working at home. I would *never* put my horse in a situation where he could get hurt! I added the last picture just to do it :wink:

@omgpink- I wish my horse loved water like that! She is a beauty! That race mare looks amazing though, I bet the adrenaline for racing is insane! I think I am going to come to Alabama and adopt all of those rescues. They all look so healthy and happy! Thank you for your help! If you have more I'd love to use them! =)

Love all the photos thanks for your help!!
@DraftyAiresMum can you copy and paste Aires as a baby so I can have one!?

@yadlim I think it would be so much fun to ride in that! You guys look like you had so much fun! Is it an event that goes on at a local arena near you?

Do an internet search for SCA and Equestrian. It is an international group that has events all year long all over the world. Most of the events do not use horses, but the horses really make the day! Trust me, there are a group of my kind of wierdos near you!!! hehehehehe
