This is my horse, Dun Star Bandit / Poco. He’s a 22 year old retired reining Quarter Horse. I can honestly say he is my best friend and soul mate and I trust him with my life.
This picture was taken today. This was my first time cantering him with no hands. A year ago, I never thought this day would come. He had injured himself and gone lame, and for months we tried everything we could but nothing worked. We trailered him to other states, hoping various vets could help us but still, he remained lame. We even gave him 5 months off and still.. he was lame. I had to accept my road with him had ended and to lease a different horse. It was over. His owner basically told me he was probably permanently lame and would retire out to pasture. I would never be able to ride the horse that was my whole world ever again. It wasn’t fair, it felt like the world was punishing me. I can’t count on both hands how many times I cried over this. I prayed every night he would get better.Even though I am riding another horse, I could never will myself to move on from him. Even now, I still have trouble loving my other horse because I have such an attachment to Poco. You may remember my other horse, Harley (a black paint) , who I submitted not too long ago.
After months of not riding Poco, I was told I could start taking him on trail rides. As you can imagine, I was so excited! Slowly, step by step, he began to recover and get stronger and better each day. Recently, he’s been worked by other people and even given lessons to his owners little girl. I rode him once and he was PERFECT. I’d been having a rough week so I decided to go out today and he was an absolute dream again. To the point where I decided I’d just drop my reins and let him go. Four years ago I couldn’t even fathom the possibility of loving a horse so much.
I have my Poco back. <3
ohmygod if I had 2,500.
This is Jasper, he’s a young 7 year old black Quarter horse that has his teenage hissy moments but I love him. c’:

He was bought like maybe at least few weeks to a month after I gave away my previous horse due to his medical condition that kept worsening over time, leading him to lameness and he was very very limited.
I found him through Equine Now but not exactly Jasper popped up on the list, I had my eye on another bay horse that was same breed but was bit taller, when I showed up. That horse was sold but they had other horses lined up, very tough choices I made and managed to narrow down to two horses, one was red dun and this guy. I tried out the red dun and he was younger like one year but he was horrible horse. He had no go and just was just bull headed enough you are required to spur him. I hate spurs, not my fave thing to use but I tried Jasper out. At first, they had their own saddle and it was too big, the ride was awful and ugly but he showed me that he had a heart to try to please me but the things I messed up was my fault. I switched to my own saddle and he was like a dream, I was able to keep myself in correct seat form since other was too big. It was lunch time, decided to discuss with my parents and they were okay with this guy but I wanted to double check. Went back and rode him again, he was still amazing horse to ride but we needed vet check and he passed it. Next day, we came with trailer and cash in our hand to buy him and take him home. <3
It’s almost a month since I gotten him, July 6th, we have been debating and frustrated through the process of finding my next horse since we messed up the last one but it was all worth it. He’s amazing even though, he has teenage attitude and hissy fits with me but it’s fun to deal with. <3
For MM, my boy 21 year-old OTTB Freddie trying to eat my phone. He recently had some huge hoof problems where they fell apart in mud, he got reshod and his hooves glued and casted together. Then some assholes at my barn put him out in pasture after being told NOT TO. His feet fell apart again, so bad the had to trim any shoeable hoof away. Now he’s on stall rest awaiting glue on shoes to help his hooves regrow. After all of this I thought he deserved another MM

A friend of mine is looking for a horse for sale under 2,000 on the west coast. She wants a well trained English horse who can take her up the ranks because she's fairly green, but wants it to be young because she won't sell. So, between 5-12 years old

There's a perlino QH stallion near my town & I was wondering if you could tell me what you think of him. His name is "Blue Eye Spruce". Unfortunately the only picture of him standing to the side, he has a saddle on. (Not planning on breeding to him, I'm just curious.)
I actually like him
Lexxy is a beautiful bay mare standing 16.2 or 16.3 with black points. Shes big but she is easy to ride - a cushy couch and a wonderful mover. Always placed well in dressage. She is looking for a person who is wanting something easy and reliable to do flat work, dressage and small (up to novice level) jumping. She is 21 and currently half leased and in the Lake Oswego riding academy program. Has many good years but is really wanting a person of her own again. Price very negotiable to right person/home.
Lake Oswego, Or
She’s too old for me, but she’ll be great for someone. [x]
