Do you remember your first horse? How did it happen? What were you thinking on that day? Did it lock you in the horse world forever?
For me, it did. My first horse as a green broke Appaloosa gelding james TJ! He was hard headed and a bit of a jerk but I remember! He was a Christmas present! He was to be brought to the house but the person to haul him lost their truck (stolen) the night before so my folks had to make some extravagant story to get me to the stable! He was in a stall with a half eaten ribbon around his neck! It made me one happy kid!!!!
Last night I had the extreme pleasure and being part of a girl and her first horse!!! I was here to whiteness the joy! She came out to “take a lesson on my new horse” then was told that Suzy Q was actually HER new horse!!!! The sheer joy rolling off that almost 15 year old girl was contagious!!!!! You guys, it helped me remember WHY I do what I do! Why I found a love of horses. Why I love seeing people/kids riding and learning all about horses!!!!!!
