I got Snow (I named her and called her Snow's Ghost when we showed in little horse shows) when I was in my early teens, and had her until my family moved when I was a junior in high school and I could no longer keep her. Although I'd been riding for a while, I'd never had a lesson - I just rode whatever horses I could and read everything I could get my hands on about all sorts of riding - Western, English, I didn't care, I read it all. Snow wasn't my first horse, but she's the one I'd most like to have back today if I could.
She was a Quarter Horse, a little on the stocky side with a long back. I believe she was a true cremello - blue eyes, and white every square inch - when I gave her a bath she was a glowing pink all over. I rode her in every way I could think of - mostly bareback, but also Western and English and we even jumped. You could ride her in a halter and she would go perfectly with any bit or with any tack. She clearly had had some Western training - when we went in little horse shows she would clean up in the pleasure classes - she had a fabulous slow jog but could also do a proper trot. We did barrels and pole-bending. I think she may even have had some reining training - I discovered that she could do sliding stops and rollbacks and we had some fun with that. I don't think she'd ever jumped before I got her (neither had I), but she took to it easily.
She had no behavior issues of any kind, although she did have one funny trait - if you took her through a stream (did I mention I could ride her anywhere?) or into a pond, she would start to paw the water and if you didn't keep her moving she would drop and roll!
As far as I'm concerned, she was the perfect horse, and I wish I could have her back. Do you have a horse from your past, particularly one from when you were young, that you wish you could have back?
