My Moon and Stars

Region 2 AA Aubrey P. shares the story of her heart horse, who she purchased as an unbroke 4-year-old and their first trip down centerline together!


I met Hank (Orchid’s Tamino) through Sara Schmitt, who imported him from Holland.  I was lucky enough to be the first person who tried him when he came to her barn.   He was full of personality, and was super willing , especially for only being three years old.   As soon as I rode him I knew I had to have him, so I called my vet to set up a pre-purchase exam.  A week later we did his exam and he passed with flying colors!  I was thrilled to finally have a horse after a long year of saving and searching.    

Peter’s Got This

Peter’s new job is to help me regain my fitness and get back into the competition ring.  I’m back up to riding four or five days a week most weeks, and even if I need to take frequent breaks, he is right there with me, with his wonderful attitude and work ethic.

Bronze Duo

The rain was still coming down hard during our warmup and what we could do in the footing was limited. So, when they called for the tests to restart, I had no expectations of riding a good test. We just splashed through the puddles, doing the best that we could. It felt like a clean test, but I had no idea where we would place.

Nothing I Wanted and Everything I Needed

The first time I saw Explosion In Gold, I leaned over to my trainer and whispered, “What is... that?” It took two weeks for me to decide to keep him.

The Lady and I Were Dancing

She could see past what Zorro and I were individually to what we could be together. Even though I thought she was crazy, I trusted her, and the journey began.

Just Chance

“Chance was twenty-one and, not wanting anything bad to happen to him, I bought him for the bargain price of $50.”

Enjoy the Dance

My vet told me it was his last gift to me, because he knew how hard it would have been for me to make a decision one day, so he went out on his terms, in good health.
