Peppy

If you will be my star, I'll be your sky

If you will be my star, I'll be your sky

Okay, so here is the story of how far I have come with Peppy.

The first time I met Peppy was actually my first time riding. Funny that I was jealous I did not get to ride the thoroughbred. But that all changed when I saw Peppy. I saw him and my heart just shattered and replaced and my mind went blank for a second.

All those fancy thoroughbred dream horses were gone. Instead, a cute shaggy stubborn paint horse replaced them. When I mounted up on him I was in a daze. I'm not kidding. I couldn't wipe that grin off my face when I got home that day.

Nowadays of course, I'm much more experienced. I'm about to learn to canter and I have just started to jump. We have ridden in a show, gymkhana and many lessons.

By the way peppy is not my horse. I wish he were though. Peppy is a black and white overo paint horse with a tan black and brown hogged mane. His forelock is long though. He has a star, stripe and snip connected. He has ink spots on his legs a pink muzzle and dark brown eyes.

If you will be my star (for Peppy, my BFF)

If you will be my star, I'll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night
When I turn jet black
And you show off your light
I live to let you shine, I live to let you shine

And you can skyrocket away from me
And never come back
If you find another galaxy
Far from here in stars aligned
Just leave me your stardust to remember you by

Our Journey


I don't even know where to start...

On Saturday, May 30th 2015, I met the love of my life. A little black and white paint horse with big brown eyes and a heart of gold. I never thought I would fall in love with a horse. I never knew how amazing the feeling of loving a horse was until Peppy. He flipped my whole world around into something amazing.

I'll never forget when I first looked into those big brown eyes... my heart totally flopped. I remember riding him for the first time like it was yesterday.

The day I left the barn, I gave him a pat on the neck and said bye. It was easy to say bye the first time but every time, it got just a little harder.

I remember hanging that picture of me standing beside him with a huge smile on my face, on my bedroom wall right beside my bed. I remember laying in bed every night and staring at his photo. I loved him more everyday.

When 2016 came along, I remember how excited I was to start taking lessons twice a month. Then I didn't ride him for a few months, I felt my heart breaking more everyday.

Then the magical day I rode him for the first time in 6 months... I remember around July we started to really bond. He came to me when I called his name and he trusted me with his life and I him.

This year however has been the BEST year of my entire life. I learned to jump 2'3 and we went to our first 2 shows together. We placed fourth in our first show and second in our second show.

We've bonded so much. I think about him all the time and when we see each other every week its like we haven't seen each other in months.

Thank you Peppy for being the one to change my whole world into something amazing. I love you more than anything in the whole world!

I love you, my Little Classy Star!

A Letter to My Horse


Dear Peppy,

Its been four months since I rode you last. Even though we haven't been able to spend much time together doesn't mean I love you any less.

I miss your big brown eyes, your stubbornness and your adorable little face. I miss the way you made me feel so happy. But I want you to know you are my best friend. My angel. My whole world.

You taught me the meaning of love. You taught me how to be strong.You taught me about what it takes to be a winner. Thank you for being the most amazing partner. I miss you and I love you!

Thank you Peppy!
