    Default Introduction :)

    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

    What a terrific pony! I think he wants you to take him jumping some more.

    What a lovely, lovely boy! Super cute!
    In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

    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.
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

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

    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!
