I haven’t posted in like over a year. This was my eleven year old appaloosa’s first time at the county fair this August. This was after our round. You can see me smiling. I was proud of our round. Unfortunately, we didn’t place in any of our classes. Which was a disappointment. Even my trainer said we should’ve placed in all of our classes. Anyhow, what do you think?
Cods was my first horse. He was my bribe home from college threee years ago. he was my pride and joy. He was 16 when we bought him and I was 18. He acted more like a 6 year old. Nice on the flat alone but a brat in the ring with other horses. He was extremely tough over fences. We bought him as a hunter, which is what I showed him in the first year. But he was more suited as a jumper. When I would be at the barn and i would feel a meltdown, I’d go into Cods stall and sit and start sobing. Cods would lay down next to me and put his head in my lap, as if to say everything will be ok, mom. Growing out of him was the hardest thing I ever had to go through. I miss him every single day.
Since I have no good pics of me and Dolly, I’m putting up some pictures of me and Cods at our last show together last year. I really can’t remember if I already put them in…… lol. This is us in our 2’6 hunter class. If you can’t tell by my face, I was pretty much praying that I survived this line. I don’t have him anymore. He’s in a kimberwick, I know a lot of people don’t like the bit because its harsh. Please don’t comment on the bit, I’ve pretty much heard it all before :p Would like to stress he’s not mine anymore But judge if you like, both horse and rider
