I'm hoping some of the people who helped me out with my first post on here are reading this! The post was about an OTTB mare who was listed as an "A+++ mover," but I wasn't sure, so I figured I'd get some advice.
As I looked into the horse more and took all the replies into consideration, I decided I wouldn't go look at the horse. After what seemed like years of searching, I found Jilly, and she arrived home on Sunday.
Jilly is a 7 year old, 13.3hh QH/Welsh mare. She's basically everything I could have asked for, for an unbelieveable price. I am so excited to start showing her next year - we'll be doing the large green ponies. I've worked with many green horses in my life, but finally having a pony as wonderful as Jill has been a major confidence booster.
I could go on about how much I absolutely adore my new pony, but I won't, as the post was just to let everyone who helped me/was curious to know what I ended up with about my happy ending.
I'm 5'3" now, so I think I'll be able to fit on ponies until I'm no longer a junior, LOL. Which means pony hunters, and big eq.
We were looking for horses over 16hh, and some how I ended up with the tiniest pony I've ever owned.. :P
Well, it has stopped raining, but the arena's still flooded. :/ Our indoor isn't up yet (big it will be before the snow, thank god), and we need new footing in our arena that soaks up the water better. We also have a leak in one of the water lines, which is causing the pastures and arena to flood even more. I'm hoping it will be dry by tomorrow. If not, I'm off school Tuesday, so I'll call my old trainer who's five houses down from me and get a lesson down there.
Thank you! I'll do my best to keep everyone posted.
Witherbee, no, not yet. On her coggins it says "Just Jilly," but I don't like that for a show name.
I've had a few suggestions - Calypso and J'adore being the ones I like most out of them - but I'm still not sure.
We're thinking of adding "Hunter Vale" before her show name, because that's the barn she came from.
If anyone else reads this, please feel free to suggest show names.
