This is Arabian pony Dan. Everyone took their first lesson on Dan the pony. I'm not sure why I was wearing red pants.
This is Jim Dandy-he was a Foxtrotter which didn't make him a great hunter, but he was a good kid's lesson horse. This picture was taken on costume day at horse camp.
This one is Zoom-a middle aged Morgan. He was one of my favorites. Definitely not your classic hunter type horse but you could ride him all day long, he could jump with the big horses and was great on trails. But he was impossible to catch in pasture. Excuse my helmet hair.
This last one is Willy. He was also privately owned and the nicest horse I ever rode. Pretty much all I had to do was not fall off and collect blue ribbons. As much fun as that was it is one of the reasons I prefer agility these days. Often, in horses, the most expensive horse wins. This is not the case in agility. It's a bit of a more even playing field.
