Discovering Life Phototgraphy by Susan McSavage
I am a avid appaloosa lover and my choice for a horse as a child was an appaloosa. I bought her when I was 10 and started showing her when I was 12. I won a few ribbons but always seemed to be overlooked as back then everyone had quarter horses. (1972) I sold her at 18, got married had 3 children and now have 4 grandchildren. I hadn't ridden for many years but started about 5 years ago once again with a friends horses. I was training a two year old for the last 2 years and was unfortunetly thrown twice off her. Unable to train fully and teach her respect since she wasn't my horse, I decided my body could not take another fall so I left this barn. After 3 months of no riding I craved it terribly. So I went on kijiji saw a 19 year old appy who sounded perfect. Tried him out and well am now boarding him in Burford, Ontario. He has done gaming classes mainly barrel racing and this is something I have never done. So here I am today, ready willing and hopefully able to attempt the show ring once again. I am looking forward to showing him in my first show at Waterford.
