A collage of me with horses. Originally for the #neighnomination.

I don't really have a particular horse to choose, so I'll do a handful that had significant impacts on my life.

The horse I first learned to ride on was a buckskin quarter horse mare named Becky, using a a bosal-style hackamore when I was just young. I'm pretty positive that's where my love of horses and my passion for them really started, and has lead me to where I am today with so many future plans and ambitions involving the equine industry- I plan to become a vet tech specializing in horses, I want to take a Horse Breeding and Production major out west, and learn to train horses in both western and english disciplines, and one day open up a boarding stable. So to that I have to owe my thanks to Adam Hornbrook for igniting my passion for horses.

After Becky came Landslide Timber Jack, aka Big Red. I remember him as a young foal at his dam April's side, his bright red coat was so brilliant, yet not exactly desirable for the Percheron breed. As he matured into a handsome stallion, his colour darkened into something along the lines of a liver chestnut. I use to stand at the pasture fence and love on him, kisses and hugs and pats, and he seemed to loved it. Even though he was a stud, I only ever remember him as being gentle and calm. He brought on my love for the draft breed, Percherons, and now im quite the little fan of Landslide Percherons run by Matthew and Brenda Hornbrook, and also follow half a dozen or so breeder/showers on facebook.

Next up is Randy, a spunky bay Quarab x Welsh gelding, pictured bottom right hand corner. Was he ever a joy to ride! I remember one day in particular after a long ride, I unsaddled Randy and just brushed him and rubbed out his back for a long while, he fell asleep pretty quickly. I hope his new family enjoys him.

Next in line is Oreo, a great little mare who I took lessons on for a few months at the beginning of 2013. I retained quite a bit from the few lessons I had, and Oreo was a great teacher, she was very patient with me and I loved learning on her. Because of Oreo, Tammy and Linda I now understand how much work goes into just the basics of riding, and have made it a goal of mine to continue learning in the english disciplines in the future.
