the quality sucks i know but at least it loaded!!
Ive had Rita for exactly five years today. I bought her for $200 when i was 13 and i never told my mom (she found out a few months later lol). i broke rita to ride while at the same time training myself to ride. and this year, my last year as a junior rider, we went to Devon, Pony Finals, Indoors for North American League Finals, and Zone 3 finals, and ribboned at every. single. one.
ive had to pay every single thing related to horses by myself. ive managed to go from western riding, to english, to cross rails hunters, to 3'9" jumpers on my pony all while training myself and the pony. There are zero words to describe how proud i am of her.
i may not be the best rider, or have the best position, or win every show, but nobody and i mean NOBODY, can beat my story. i come out of every ring with a smile on my face, first place or after a fall, bc i know theres nothing i would rather be doing.
i finished up my junior riding career last week, and while i didnt place as well i wanted, rita went around so amazingly i couldnt be mad. i cant believe how far ive gotten, and i take zero credit; that pony has done everthing for me and more. i honestly owe her EVERYTHING. so thanks super pony, its been one hell of a ride.
