Hi! I've lurked for a while but I finally decided to join. I'm a female college student and my horse is a 7 year old dutch riding pony named Vito. We've done dressage for about a year now, I've owned him for 3. He is the love of my life!
Not sure what else really to say! We did training level last year, and are hoping to move up to 1st and some 2nd this year. I can't wait to get to 3rd level, though!!

Here are some pictures of him :)

You guys look great!! Vito is gorgeous and it seems like he's having a blast jumping, you guys should definitely get out on the XC course more often. You'll get sucked in! :)

Really lovely pony and your jumping looks super - if they are sound for it, they love to have something different to do, and you are a lovely rider.

Congratulations on your accomplishments and hope to see more of your efforts this coming year.

I'm just starting dressage, and will be tryng out showing training this year. Nice to see someone doing so well and moving up in their training.

Methinks he secretly wants to be an eventer. You can come to the dark side, no one is looking!

What a lovely boy he is and what a jump he has!
You two look perfect together. Welcome to the board, we are glad to have you and Vito.

Thanks for all the compliments you guys!!! I love him a lot :)

hehe and to whoever said he wants to be an eventer, I think so too! However I am slowly but surely getting the dressage bug. I am hoping though to go to one event this summer with him, just for fun!

Hi Vito, welcome! I'm also a college student/dressage rider. One of my goals is to own a German riding pony someday when I can afford it. Where did you get your gorgeous pony?
