Hi! I have a 15.1 Belgium/Quarter Horse Cross, named Velvet. She is my first horse. She is 20 years old, and stocky. I knew her for a few years, since I was working as a therapeutic riding instructor. Velvet was a thetapeutic riding mount, at the facility I worked at.
The facility wanted to rehome Velvet, because, she was a therapeutic mount, for so many years,and she wanted a nother career path. She was starting to spook and was irritated, and needed a change from her daily schedule and just a family to devote time and love to her.
So, I bought her. I was extatic! She is a charcole black, with white markings. I took her for her first ride, and she was very spooky. Took her in the indoor, she bucked me off.
I definately was to eager-I should have let her get used to things on the ground.
Now, we do lots of ground work. I am doing lots of descensitizing with her.
She is so great! She and I have definately bonded! She follows me around, all over the place. She is a sweet heart. We have a ways to go. Both of us.:)
Live to Ride!!
I prefer horses to people, anyday!
