Hey there...thought I'd better introduce myself and my borderline pony.
Let's start with me...WELL...my name is Rhiannon I am 16 y/o. I currently live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Yes, I am part of the "eh team" and might I state that yes, I am proud of it! I have been riding for many, many years. I have always been fascinated with dressage...but I hated how evil it was and looked (like 50 bits in their mouth)...so here I am...here to learn the natural way of doing dressage. I catch on fast so hopefully this will be a breeze and we will soon be doing natural dressage.
Ok, now time for some info on my horse...
Name: Ice Cappuccino (a.k.a Cappy)
Age: 15 y/o
Colour: Liver Chestnut
Markings: A little white star
Cappy came to me about a year an a half ago. I actually found his ad on the computer and he was listed for free...well...I know why, once I got him...him was like IMPOSSIBLE to control...when trying him out the lady actually said "Don't pull on the reins to stop, he'll just got faster"...WELL...I guess I have to use my seat...which he didn't respond to either...SO YES...he was quite a project for me...and we have come a LONG, LONG way...I wouldn't trade him for anything...he is a sweet, sweet guy... STUBBORN but I have gotten through...he actually knows a few tricks...he gives kisses and hugs...haha, such a suck-up. We still have so much more to fix...another reason I am here...I actually went to a horse show...where there was a VERY RUDE judge, and we entered the pleasure class...WELL...after she went around giving comments, she got to us and said: "He will NEVER be a good pleasure horse"...I almost cried cause I thought I did so good. I have almost forgot to mention his previous home...nice people...but downright horrible to the horses...Cappy is 14.3hh...well they had him jumping 5ft fences...maybe that is just me to think it is not fair, but he doesn't even like jumping from my experiences with him...I think he got most his problems from them. Anyway...moving on...I will post a few pics of him!
So if you have any tips, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Rhiannon & Cappy
