I know almost nothing about horses or how to show them, but she looks like she knows what she is doing. I wish her the very best luck!

She's beautiful!

The horse is so pretty. Do you own this horse. Our neighbor has several horses in a pasture behind our house. So we see horses every day.

In regards to your question on my blog, yes, I drive a truck. It is a four door 2005 Toyota 4x4 Tacoma with a full back seat so I can safely take my 4 year old grandson when I go anywhere. He loves going through the car wash. LOL

Indoor riding in the Summer is a good thing for the horse and the rider. Good fortune in the upcoming contest. Pappy

My first love is horses and then dogs and then my wife of 52 years. I got no horses and got no dogs and still got Patty, my wife.

I was a cowboy once out in Show Low, Arizona before the Korean War came along and then I have always had dogs. Been this and that and now at 74 am into retirement without pain from my Rheumatoid Arthritis.

I go to blogs but usually only to those who come to mine as I have a lot of people to visit. I have a lot of horse people whose blogs are nice to see and I visit them too.

Anyway...

You visited me first...

Thanks to you and others, I have fun trying to post things that may surprise some visitors; make others laugh a bit, but most of all make lots of people aware of things that might not know much about.

When somebody actually takes the time to write a comment on my blogs, about my work and what I do, that to me is the biggest gift a person can give another. It is like a smile on greeting; it is a welcome handshake, and it gives me and my family some hope that the funny farm is still in the future on down the road.

You, yourself, are an inspiration to me.

Such beautiful photography of beautiful things, like a sunset, or a bird, a flower or your beautiful horses and the photos of riding, they are like magic to see. Wow. It is impressive indeed.

I come back to say, "thanks for visiting and leaving a comment" but a special thanks for taking the time to photograph interesting things of great beauty. Without that, blogging would be about as exciting as trying to scratch an itch in the right place at the wrong time.

So, thanks for stopping at my blog. And I hope you know, by now, that when you do, I will always try to visit your blog, in return, and leave a comment. I do read what people write and your excellent photography got my attention.

Sincerely,

Abraham Lincoln

Great pictures - I've just been watching a film on TV about a zebra competing in the Kentucky Derby!

Janice Thomson said...

A beautiful horse and a professional looking rider. Glad to hear she won!
Excellent photos.

Dan said...

Congratulations! Horse and rider look great. My daughters have really been into horses. Seems to be a real girl thing. As for me, they are just mobile fertilizer factories ;)

Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments.

The Woman said...

Yeah!!! Congrats! That's a beautiful horse

Indrani said...

WAY TO GO N! GREAT JOB! I can see that you both have good reason to be proud of her.. thanks for sharing!

michele said...

We are so proud of her! Thanks for posting these comments! She's had a rough road, & some problems, but keeps on "truckin!" The "red" horse is "Missy Sippy, Full-of-Grace." We call her "Missy." N sings "Amazing Grace" to her when she's upset (hence, the name!). This horse was supposed to be an "investment," ie cheap, quick sale...but she & my daughter laid eyes on each other & that was it! The brown horse is her Mustang, Lily. They are two-of-kind! This show was a local show on Memorial Day, & the show this weekend was the district 4-H show. She'll move on to State on the 12th. Wish her luck, and those of you who are interested, GET YOUR CHILDREN INVOLVED IN YOUR LOCAL 4-H groups! Wonderful opportunites with livestock, photography, fish & game, crafts, etc. 4-H kids are too busy to get in trouble, AND are offered scholarships!
