Amber's Blog

As I said I would, I'm not going to continue writing on Jack's old blog about my riding. We had our issues, but I loved that pony, and he will always hold a special place in my heart. That blog will be left up as a tribute to him and our adventures together.

And I'm not going to continue to write on the temporary blog about Amber either. So here we are on Amber's new blog. Named so not because I believe Amber has chestnut mare syndrome, but because I think *I* do. I'm desperately in love with my little girl. ;)

What was it, a little less than a year ago I was talking about buying a horse? If I'm not mistaken; I was talking about trying to do it by the end of the year. Well, gee, I did what I said I'd do. And I am financially stable enough to do so. Life is good.

I swear, I feel a stronger bond with this mare than any other horse I've ever had. And that includes Gulliver and Jack, and god knows I loved those two. I don't know what it is, I just feel so natural. When I'm with her, when I'm riding her. I have trusted her from the moment I met her. That hasn't happened since my fear issues developed. This is fate.


  1. Wonderful to be here at this particular new blog as an era begins.

    So happy about the good clean vet exam and the vet's comment that she was a nice girl. Certainly wonderful to know you picked the right horse.

    I'm looking forward to reading of your good rides, good days, and all those special moments you and your girl have together.

  2. Thank you! You're one of my long-time followers, so you know how much it means to me to *finally* feel some security with a ride - in more ways than one.

    Just knowing that nobody can take her and sell her out from under me, nor make big decisions for her. Her future is entirely up to me. That feels good, to have that security and peace of mind.

    And of course, I feel so comfortable on her and around her, THAT security is very nice too.

  3. Oh Yay!!! Good for you and Amber! I want pictures, lots and lots of pictures!
