Thoroughbred Lover

I am horse crazy for many reasons. I love horses because they are fun, loving, and a great friend. they're so much fun to ride jump and canter on. Also, they let me have responsibility to take care of them. Also when I ride them it gives me confidence and the feeling of accomplishment when I finish the show or course. I leased a horse which was an awesome experience for me. no I am hoping I could buy my own.

I am looking for some good horse books movies and games. Also some tips for becoming a better rider. someday I hope to become a vet for horses or a professional horse back rider.

I leased a dark bay 17hh thoroughbred who is 9 years old. he is about bomb proof. which means safe for about everyone for those who don't know. his owner is gonna sell him soon though, and I will miss him a lot. this is my dream horse:

-a super tall liver or dark bay thoroughbred gelding or mare, preferably a gelding
- a Hunter or a jumper, also with eventing and dressage training
- bomb proof
- low temperament around 1 or 2 or 3
- around 6 to 10 years old.
- spook free
- not shy around farrier, vet, girth, small kids or animals, etc
- a kind good-natured horse
- no markings
- and is able to go on trail rides and ride bareback

I know that by his is a lot of must haves and must not haves but I think someday I will find my dream horse.

I have been in 7 classes in shows. I have won over 25 ribbons two trophies and two champion and two reserve champions. 6 firsts 10 seconds . 3 3rds 1 fourth and fifth and a lot more. all of these shows had over 8 people in them. I have jumped oxer over 3 ft done a little gymkhana and western but mainly I do English. I also can do a flying lead change.I also can canter courses with jumps over 2'6. I have been riding for 3 years.

Fellow TB lover!

Sorry about your lease horse being sold :-( But that dream horse of yours will come your way. I also had a dream horse in mind who had to be:
- under 5 years old
- a warm blood or TB with a lot of talent and a big jump
- easy to handle, but with a lot of zest for life and spirit
- under 16hh, but over 15hh (I'm tiny)
- pale grey or bright chestnut, preferably with big markings
- backed without vices, but no training in the way of jumping or advanced schooling.
I never even mentioned that dream horse to anyone but my special confidante, my Lord God, and we never went horse shopping or anything of that sort. I knew such a horse could cost a terrific amount of money. And then, one day, my instructor told me about a horse standing at the stables - a gorgeous 15.1hh four-year-old TB gelding, grey with four socks and a blaze, named Magic.
To make a long story short, Magic meets every single requirement, was about a tenth of the price of most horses his quality, and is coming home next Monday. You'll find your dream horse. I know I did - or rather, my Lord dropped him right in my lap!
