Hello! I am seventeen and very very blessed to have five horses in my life
Windy CC is our first horse and my pride and joy. I ride her every day. She was sorta our whole family's effort to train, so we all learned on her. We got her green broke, then I have upped her training and been riding her ever since. I want to go into barrel racing with her.
Dusty is the other horse I work with. I have rode her a few times. She is green broke, just *very* green broke.
Echo Sunshine I pretty much green broke also, but I gave her away, and now her owner gave her back to me!
I don't work much with Dottie. She was broke when we got her, so my older sister rides her sometimes.
Tally is my twin sisters horse. I rarely work with her.
Kansas is Dusty's baby. She is the cutest little gal. She loves to play and kick every thing in sight when she is mad at one thing. She is very friendly and loves to be scratched.
