Hello everyone! I've been a lurker for a long time, I was registered under EventingRed back in 04 or 05 but have since sold the red horse and bought my Brown Horse otherwise known as Shorty.

I'm 19 years old and compete in the Jumpers on the "A" circuit with my boy. I just recently sold my first OTTB retraining project, Scarlett.

I'd love to get to know you all better, so introduce yourself! I want to hear about your horses and pictures are always welcome.

Ok, and the pictures.... I LOVE showing off my boy. I bought him as a 5 year old and he's now 7. He's a Holsteiner (dam: Gerda 1 and sire: Runaway).

Shorty and I schooling at home--

In the Jumpers at Woodside in... 08 I think http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=735201&l=4adb4a3564&id=595222765

That's all for now. Please introduce yourself!

Take care,

Hey, welcome to COTH!!! Be forewarned, you WILL become addicted. :) I'm blackcat95, former lurker as well. It's nice to be out in the open, isn't it?

No critiques from me either- Shorty is adorable and I LOVE your auto release!! GM would be proud!

Hello everyone! Thanks for the warm welcomes :)

I'm in the North Bay (Santa Rosa area). Do you ever show at Murrieta? I think we're going there for the Northern Winter Classic (perhaps, gotta pick out my shows for this season!)

I just joined too! I was a lurker for a good 6 months lol. Its great to know someone my age comes on these things as well. I am 19 I live in NJ. I do hunters as well. I would kill to have your release though. I cant break my creast release habits. Your horse is georgous and you are an amazing rider too. I have a 15.3 hand quarter horse i do hunters on. I know ppl dont usually think quarter horse as hunters but he is very very fancy I assure you. And he is also a string halt surviver which makes him more important to me. When I figure out how to post pictures I defently will post one of him. Wish you and your horse all the best for the up coming show year!

Hay Hunter girl...I am a fellow QH owner/rider...also in NJ. Where are you boarding? I am much older than you but love meeting other QH people.
Also welcome to all the newbies.
And OP your horse is a beauty and no critique form me either!

I'm also mostly a lurker, also from HC (recognize the horse, he's beautiful). Good luck with the show season.

I'm hoping to start showing but am no where near your level! If we're ever at a show together I'll probably be the one in the crossrails class with the 8 year olds, getting my a** handed to me LOL!

Smile-- Nice to see you around! How are your boys doing?
