My name's Sofia! I don't own any horses, however I'm lucky enough to be able to ride a few at my barn. Hobbes, a 22-year-old chestnut QH, is my favorite. He's unfortunately never going to been ridden again due to a hock injury, but I love just hanging out with him and taking him on walks! I also hang out with Skippy, a palomino Appaloosa with no spots, four white stockings, a bald face, and blue eyes! He has a cyst in his stifle so he only walks, but we have a lot of fun on walking trails. Lastly, the only sound horse I play with is Willow, a big buckskin TB who is gorgeous!
I am a working student at the best barn in the world. I teach beginner children and occasionally an intermediate in exchange for lessons. My favorite things:
1. Walking trail rides on the buckle
2. Cantering and galloping bareback
3. Cleaning tack in the hayloft during thunderstorms
4. The smell and feeling of the barn early in the morning, especially in the spring or summer.
5. Anything else horse-related, of course!
YOur love for horses is obvious - good for you! Any time you want to come as a working student of mine, let me know! We teach our students about bodywork and the relationship between problems under saddle and physical issues. Check out my website for more info, cheers, Ann. We need more like you in the world!!
very nice pictures! I'm living in Germany -and I think I have a daughter at your age. She rides an Andalusian horse and is similar enthusiastic about horses as you are. I used to have a Palomino as well but don't anymore.
