||Four years old|
||Oviedo, Florida, USA|
is Sir James aka Jimmy. Jimmy is special because he is my first
horse. When I first got him I was so afraid to canter him because he is so
big (17.0hh) and still growing. Before I got Jimmy I had only been riding
four months and just starting to jump on a Thoroughbred mare Sienna. She
taught me a lot. But enough about her, back to the main star. When we pull
up to the barn, Jimmy knows our truck so he whinnies and nickers and
throws his head about waiting at his stall door for his treat. He probably
couldn't get enough treats in his mouth if he tried. Now after having him
just over a year, he has improved my riding and made me much more
confident. Even though he is a pain sometimes, I love him.
Sometimes when I turn him out for a while before my lessons he won't let
me catch him afterward, so I have to bribe him with mints and carrots
before he even let's me near him with a halter. Jimmy is so great and
sweet and lovable, other than when he is fresh and in the paddock during
his time. Oh, by the way, we came from little cross rails to 2'9 oxers and
are still raising the bar. He is sooo good, he doesn't spook at anything. I
love my Jimbo, he's the best horse in the world. And he's even better at
shows as you can see how beautiful he is with his braids and jumping at
that. He's great!!! I love him!!!
