Not too sure if I had posted this or not, but I’m gonna give a little summary of Ginger’a (left) and Fiona’s (Right) background.
These two pictures were taken the first day I got them. My parents and I drove two hours to get them up in the mountains of Pennsylvania from this lady who was getting rid of them so the owner of the property could put cows there instead. When we get there, we check the horses, they are of course the ones for me and I knew it as soon as I saw them. Sadly, the lady did not know how to take care of them very well. They were covered in burrs and had improper halters on (Fiona had two rope halters on, Ginger had one halter on that was so tight it left a mark in her face).
After we made the decision, I payed 800 dollars and loaded them up onto the trailer. Once we got home, we took off Ginger’s halter and got to work on Fiona’s. Hers was pretty bad. We ended up having to cut out her rope halters and it took her at least a month till she warmed up enough to let us put a halter on. They both were head shy, Fiona more than the other, and had bad thrush in their hooves.
We didn’t have a fence up for them yet, so we kept them in a little barnyard for the time being, and my father, grandfather, and I fixed the fence in a matter of days. I would walk the horses around the field while they were fixing it to make sure they didn’t get to stocked up, which doubled as a good way for bonding with them. Flash forward to now, and they are living the life they deserve. Ginger’s scar thing is so much smaller than before and Fiona has a forelock now πŸ˜‚β€οΈ. They both are not headshy anymore and I couldn’t be happier to say that, with the help of my riding instructors, I have brought them up to this point ❀️❀️❀️

Hehe pon pon is hiding behind a barn door
Ginger poo's poor scar has no fur growing so it just gets super cold, but I cant think of a way to keep it warm since it's on her face. i will not put a halter on her with a fleece noseband, because she is too spooky and clumsy so i don't want her getting stuck. I dont have any other ideas. 😭
~
QOTD: is your horse getting fluffy?
AOTD: yup, fluffy and muddy all at the same time.

I hope Nina is better today. The vet is coming out to look at her, so hopefully she's fine and there's nothing wrong anymore!!
~
QOTD: if you could ride one of my horses, which one would it be?
AOTD: I mean, I ride Nina more often because the other two are older, but I love riding all of them!

So Nina has an abscess in her back hoof, so we won't be able to go to the show this weekend. We had been riding every other day and she was going so nicely. Now she's gonna be off for awhile. I was so excited to show!! I was going to braid her and everything! Ugh, it's so upsetting. Of course, Nina knows how to put me in a good mood by being silly while the vet was wrapping her up.

QOTD: if you could buy anything you wanted from Dover/ any other tack store, but you have a limit of 4 things, what would you buy? ~
AOTD: red matchy set (saddle pad and polos), a base layer shirt, and a 5 point breastplate in black with a martingale.

She's an overachiever 😍
I need her to put more weight on. I'm gonna feed her twice a day and maybe put her on a supplement.

I apologise for not posting in awhile. I was super busy this weekend! Here's an older pic of my super fuzzy Ginger Spice this past late fall. We aren't too sure why she always stands square when she sees something πŸ˜‚

((EDIT: Not riding today bc mud and my dad can't take us out to my barn to ride so we're gonna try tomorrow instead))
QOTD: what color should I ride in today with Nina?
In saddle pads, I have
navy blue, hunter green, or white and gold ottb?
In polos, I have
Navy blue w/navy blue Velcro or black Velcro, hunter green polos with ottb Velcro, one random purple polo, or pink polos
AOTD: I think I'm gonna go all navy today with the navy/black Velcro polos πŸ˜„

Day 5: my first fall

My first fall was on Blosson (the paint from day 1). We went to canter and my little teeny tiny self couldn't tighten the girth enough, so the saddle slipped to the side. Blossom stopped and I gracefully dismounted and landed on my feet. Good job small me. Little do you know, you will have alot worse falls than that. ~

Day 3: best ride ever

All of my rides are learning experiences for my horses and myself, so I have never really had a "best ride ever". Although I do have some favorite rides. One of them was the first time I rode Ginger bit less with a neckrope. I almost cried πŸ˜‚. These last couple of rides on Nina have been amazing, she's being amazing!! My favorite ride on Fiona was the one time she was able to ride away from Ginger without getting worked up. ~

Day 2: the last time I rode a horse and what I did

I rode yesterday with Nina and we worked on more flatwork, then jumped a couple times. After that we went out in the front yard to ride around and some creepy dude pulled down my driveway just to tell me I had a good seat...?(like I know this you can stop being a creep now lol) So even though that whole situation has me kinda worried we had fun. I also took her for a trail ride and a fun gallop in the field 😍 pls enjoy this goofy picture of my giraffe horse cross πŸ˜‚

Day 1: when and why I started riding

I was 9 when I got my first lesson, so in 2009 with little tiny me πŸ˜‚
I had been begging and begging my mom to let me start riding for a very long time, and she finally let me go to a lesson. I was so so so so excited to go ride for the first time that I'm pretty sure I thanked my mom every 5 minutes for it. I started riding because I had always loved horses since I was able sit on one at my old farm house. I did ballet since I was 3 years old, but stopped when I was 14 so I could buy two horses (Fiona and Ginger 😘) and it was the best decision I ever made.The first horse I rode was Blossom (pictured). My first instructor was Amanda Hunter at Miller's horse farm till she moved away and I had to go to my current barn that I LOVE (shoutout to Whiting's Neck) which is also where I got Nina from!

This is one of my favorite pictures of Ginger 😍
She is such a cutie! The scar on her nose opened up again today. It's just a small scab she keeps rubbing on stuff. I put swat on it to keep the flies off and that usually does the trick! ~
QOTD: favorite show number you have ever had?
AOTD: 151 and 336 😊 I try to keep my numbers from shows! I still have both of these πŸ˜„
