View Full Version : Pics of my new horse.

First, thanks to everyone who replied to my NUMEROUS threads as of late. :lol: I really appreciate all the input. Posting here helped me clear my mind and stop panicking about the huge decision DH and I were facing. :cool:

The horse vetted exactly as we hoped and expected, and we're on the way home with him now! We'll be there in about an hour. :D

I'm really thrilled to be able to spend the winter getting to know him before I return to eventing in the spring. DH is telling me I should start at N buuut I'm a wuss and would really like to let myself be a weenie and start at BN! :lol:

But here's some pics of me and him on the day I tried him. I couldn't stop grinning throughout the entire ride and at one point was feeling really emotional (weird for me !) and teared up. :sadsmile:

One of my first XC fences in over 3 years! (http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs259.snc1/10631_591551374547_40600898_34679475_5953700_n.jpg )

Talking about my ride...Note the grin! (http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs279.snc1/10631_591551644007_40600898_34679484_7310454_n.jpg )

This is one of my favorites even though he's looking akward...

Thought I'd share. :)

Thanks everyone! I'm just thrilled to the teeth. Now that he's finally home it feels "real" and I'm very excited. :D

Of course I think he's just beautiful... but I'm obviously biased with new found love/infatuation!:lol:

I can see why you have the huge smile on your face. He is a nice boy! Please tell your DH that there is absolutely nothing wrong with starting at BN.

As a good friend told me recently, when you are bored with the cross country fences at a level, then move up. I have been anything but bored at my last three events, so still may not make the move up.

Have fun this winter getting to know him. Next Spring, you should have a blast! Hopefully, we will get to see you at some of the Area8 events. :yes:

Congrats!! what a lovely horse! you make a great pair from what i can tell and i am happy for you that you are so thrilled with him!

Oct. 25, 2009, 06:36 PM
The best feeling in the world is getting to ride a horse everyday that you adore! Have fun getting to know him this winter and congrats!

Oct. 26, 2009, 01:06 PM
Congrats! I am so happy for you and so excited to see you out and about again ;). I'll keep you in mind if we schedule any clinics this winter!

I'm jealous!

Oct. 26, 2009, 03:36 PM
Yeah! You look great together.

Thanks everyone! Had my first ride on him last night and it was a blast! My ring was soaking wet so DH and I rode on the trails and he was so much fun. I just took about 10 mintues to relax and remember that he's a REAL HORSE not a lazy horse like my APHA pleasure horse. :lol: Really fun.

Can't wait to do some dressage with him and get to know him better.

Have a wonderful time with him :D
You guys make a wonderful looking team!!! :winkgrin:
