    My main passion in life is horses. Hence why all my pictures are of them. haha. ;D

    I really haven't been riding as long as I'd like to because of money but now I ride pretty much everyday if things go my way. I started riding when I was 8 at this old westerny barn that had Appaloosa horses. I rode like once a week there for about a year until we didn't have the money. My grandparent's bought a 6 month old colt (Sarge) for me on my... 11th (I think...) birthday. When he turned 3 we sent him off to training which was how I started riding again. I rode at the barn he was trained at for a while until I found my new barn. I leased a horse named Bubba there. We moved my horse, Sarge, there not long after. Later I started leasing a Paint named Jolly which I am still leasing currently. Sarge is now 5 and starting to show a little and learn the ropes. My barn does eventing and although I've only been to 2 shows so far I'm in love with it.

    As for my horses. This is Sarge. He's a 5 year old Quarter Horse cross. My trainer thinks he has Morgan in him but we're not sure. He's a total dork and he's always getting into something. He thinks he's a stud and is always oggling the mares. hah. I love him to death. (:

    Sarge and I a few weeks ago. Before we started working on collection with him...

    And then there is Jolly. He's a 14 year old Paint/TB cross. He's a pretty seasoned eventer and he's taught me tons. He has very pretty blue eyes which he likes to give me weird looks with. He thinks he's too dignified for the world. hah. He's a ton of fun to ride.

    Jolly and I a few weeks ago.

    Hey Emily. Cute horses =)

    I have a 9 year old tb gelding, Simon. We used to show a bit in dressage and jumper, however we havn't had training lately, so no more showing for him. I am building a new house on 8 acres, so once it is finished I am going to bring my horses home and get a show horse (hopefully fresian). I also have 2 miniatures that are half brothers. One is a stud and I hope to breed him to a hugeee mare one day and see what I get lol!

    We Have a Black and White Homozygous Stud and my web site has not been updated since I got my new camera ; ( So all point and shoot pictures on it.

    I had a horse accident in 2001 off a young paint mare and I was rushed to one hospital then transferred to another where I had a blown out knee and a broken leg I was on a walker for 6 months and I have taken spills before but this was the worse I did get back in the saddle but it was hard and I am still having fear issues so for the most part I stay on the ground : )

    At 46 I don't mend like I use to.

    I don't currently own any horses, but they are my favorite animal. In lieu of the real thing I collect and show model horses like Breyers. I have over 500 of them. I used to own a grade mare named Star. She was sorrel and my mom said she had ASB in her.

    My favorite breeds are Spanish breeds. I love Andalusians, Lusitanos and Paso Finos. I got to ride a Paso back in 1995. It was way cool! My dream horse is a buckskin Lusitano.
