From Endurance to Dressage
Yup! My pony was born on tax day just eight years ago. His breeder, Melissa Feather of Feather Arabians, thinks highly of all of her horses and no doubt knew that G Ima Starr FA would make some wonderful contributions some day. She was right!
Speedy G has turned out to be a really good sport. He has a great sense of humor, he's brave, he oozes personality, and well, people just like him! He's also proven to be quite a versatile ride as well. His work on the endurance trail proved that he's a smart fellow, and his dressage ability is growing. Who knows what he might accomplish?!
I have a hard time boasting about my horses' good points. I know how cool he is, but without knowing him in person, it's probably hard for you to to appreciate his many great qualities. Since I know, I'm just going to send him birthday wishes and be thankful that we found each other.
I pulled him out of of his stall to take this picture. The outside run was deep with ooey-gooey mud, but the inside of his stall was clean and dry. Guess where he likes to hang out? Typical Speedy pony ...
About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
