Chip the Wonder Horse
 By Pintie   •   8th Jul 2010   •   6,395 views   •   22 comments
Chip is a horse like know other. Chip was born in 1995 in Kentucky. He was first owned by a girl who had a special bond with him. She was a friend of mine. Then some other people bought him. I never got to meet them. Let me go ahead and tell the story of Chip and me.

Chip the Wonder HorseI first met Chip when I started doing riding lessons at the age of 6. I started out on a pony called Swazy. He was Black with hints of brown on his muscles. Swazy had a Star and a Snip. He was a very lazy pony. he was very slow and I had a need for speed. So when I first met Chip, I knew he was the one.

When I first met Chip, he lived in a pasture because his second owners didn't pay the board. He stayed outside with little to no shelter from the rain. He had turned mean on everyone because of it. When he was in the wash stalls he would bite at anything that would come by and pin his ears back. He also had a thick woolly coat, unlike the other horses who got trimmed in the winter for shows. His hooves needed trimming and they took off his shoes, which he had probably never experienced. He had good reasons to hate life and also people.

When I first saw him it was love at first sight. I thought to myself that he was the most beautiful pony that I had ever seen in my life and that I would love to have him. He was a dream to ride. He had a faster walk and trot than Swazy so I could get my need for speed and he stopped on a dime. He had been trained fairly well, but there were a few troubles in his training. It took a while to get use to his trot but I soon got over that. He started to warm up to me, we had a special bond. A bond like no other.

My parents started to take interest into Chip. He was perfect for me. The perfect size and he was not too unruly. My parents had been looking into a horse for me and they weren't paying for more lessons. They first thought about leasing Chip and when they told me about this, I was ecstatic. My very own horse! Soon after they said we couldn't lease him.

In November of 2005, my life was changed. Chip had become my very own horse. It was an early Christmas present. I was so happy about it being him. after all of this time, the most gorgeous horse that I loved at first sight, was mine! Now I could do whatever I wanted to with him, without having to take a lesson.

I still have Chip today. He changed though. Now Chip is the most loving horse out at my new barn. He can get a laugh out of anyone that comes to the barn. We have a special and unbreakable bond that is unexplainable. It is truly amazing. He will do anything for me. Chip protects me, he would never try to hurt me. This is why Chip is A Wonder Horse.
