n808605570_4434540_7919This is my first post on my new blog. I was going to make a blog for my horse and me to record her progress when she was first starting out two years ago, but whoops I’m a little late. But what better a time to start then the beginning of 2009? I will be keeping it updated with knew news of us.

Since this is my first post, it must call for a proper introduction. My name is Rose and I have been riding for over eight and a half years. I’m 17 and you could say that my life completely revolves around horses. 4-H is also a big part of my life. I have met so many awesome people from being involved in 4-H. One of my goals for this show season is to qualify for the 2009 4-H Southern Regionals in Arkansas. My pony showed at the Memphis Regionals back in 2007. I mainly show in hunters and equitation, and I’m probably one of the few that does not have an unlimited bank account. I have learned very quickly that money does not grow on trees, as much as I would like it to.

Enough about me, here’s the part where I talk about the horses! I own a medium pony, Khaki, and I’ve been riding and training the best horse in the entire world, Snowy, for over two years. Snowy is pretty much amazing! Her show name is Palmetto Snowshoes. She is a 7 year old 16.2hh Thoroughbred/Paint. I show her in hunters and equitation, she is too lazy to be a jumper, but I would definitely love to try it sometime in the future. Like I said above, I’ve been riding her for over two years. She has come such a long way.  We school up to 3’3″. This year I’m am hopefully going to be showing on the PSJ Circuit. Yay, I’m so excited!  I have learned so much from Snowy throughout the years. I can tell this show season is going to be our best yet, so stay tuned!
