    Talking Christmas Came Early!!!!

    Today I got a horse for Christmas!!!! I have had two ponies. I still have my large pony and now a horse too!!! She is a jumper!!! I've wanted this mare ever since she came down from my trainer's breeding farm up north! She was imported from Argentina and had two babies. I was riding her a lot and just realized wow this reaalllly is the horse for me! My parents agreed (without me knowing..) and hid the fact they were buying her. She won a class by 7 sec in an indoor ring out of 50+ horses and is only 15.2! She loves her job!!!

    me getting her:

    If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong.

    The 2 foot clearance over the fence in the second jumping picture made me giggle. Have a wonderful time with her. Happy Xmas.

    What a Christmas present! No wonder you are beaming.

    What a lovely mare and a talented jumper.

    It gives pause and humbles you to be so lucky, doesn't it.

    Thanks y'all! I'm still sooo surprised!!! My mom and dad had been telling me that no no no we cant buy her until my pony sells.. etc. Ofrenda truly loves her job and is always looking for the next jump! I'm soo thankful for getting her and I know she is going to teach me A LOT. Merry Christmas!
