Ameera and Maci had always seemed like a match made in heaven, so horse shows were just the next big step for the two.

Rodeo has helped me grow up. Since third grade I went from going to rodeos with my family to chasing the white lines on my own. I have had numerous opportunities presented to me from rodeo such as being on tv for qualifying for Worlds, traveling all the way to New Mexico and Wyoming to compete, and being rodeo queen for Southern Indiana Junior Rodeo Association. My parents took care of my horses for me. They cleaned stalls, fed them day and night, and packed the trailer for each rodeo.
Without being in 4-H since I was a Cloverbud I would not be the person that I am today. 4-H has also helped me with my leadership skills. I have been my clubs Secretary for four years now and being able to take charge and having a role in the meetings every time we have one is very nice. 4-H has been a part of my family for a long time, my older brother, sister, and my twin have all shown at the Ashland County
Seabiscuit traveled all over the country to compete in races, which can be a ridiculously huge strain especially on animals. Reading this book, I was reminded of the life lessons I have learned growing up around horses and how much in common there is with the high-ends and people such as myself. Growing up, handling equine was just common knowledge for everyone, and because of that I’ve learned that there needs to be a bond and some trust between the rider and horse.
Most horse books follow a similar plot; a sassy city girl meets a hurt or wild horse, tames it, and transforms into an earthly country gal who wears a cowboy hat and boots. That’s not the case with Misty of Chincoteague. Marguerite Henry 's book Misty Of Chincoteague gives a suspenseful plot with peaks and valleys, and the hope of two children hoping to catch a pony of their own. This book unlike many horse based books is based off of a real Chincoteague pony with a patch shaped like the USA as part of her coat. The book starts of by introducing Paul and Maureen, two hopeful kids who want to have a pony of their own.
Gwen Stefani just got a pretty big gift and speculation is that it could be from her new boyfriend Blake Shelton. It is very obvious that Blake is a country boy at heart, even if he is in LA a lot lately for work on The Voice. Now US Magazine is reporting that someone gave Gwen the gift of a horse and of course everyone assumes it was from Blake. Gwen told her fans all about the animal by heading to her Instagram page. She said “My new bunny” and then tagged “#Bestpresentever hi Halo.” After that Gwen Stefanin shared another picture of the horse and shared the hashtag #Cantbelivemylife.
Horses have always been a part of my life. Currently I own two horses, which I consider to be my best friends. Born with a bridle in my hand, I fit like a glove on our cattle and horse farm. We raised and managed an average of two hundred cattle and provided horse boarding and training. At six years of age, I broke and trained my first horse.
Her family is a big part of her life and has been her number one fan. Although gymnastics took up a lot of her time schooling was valuable to her. Shawn Johnson has had many influences in her life to make her who she is her family has always been there for her, gymnastics was like her second home, and education was a top priority. The first influence Shawn Johnson has is her family. “Since I practiced Monday through Saturday, Sunday was our family day.” Shawn 's family is very
The Lorena Falasco Running Club is a new club spearheaded by Deborah Atkins. Just as Deborah, I too, began running later in life so I was quite excited when she began organizing this club. I jumped at the opportunity to become a coach! I was athletic as a teen; however, in my adult life sports and exercise took a backseat up until 5 years ago. At one time, the thought of running, made me want to run and hide, but with a great coach I was able to quickly adapt to long distances and enjoy it!
The matches began with my weight class; I was called down first. My best friends and the captain along with coach waited for me to walk to the mat and start my match. I was under a lot of pressure that I couldn 't perform to my true potential, I took a shot and just as I expected I was pinned within the first 30 seconds. That was my first on record failure, which gave me one more reason to carry on. I pushed myself each and every day till the end of the season.
She is the fastest horse that my uncle and cousin Christian own. Occasionally, we need to be careful when my cousins and I are around her. I just love it when the wind blows her hair to one side. My uncle Miguel and my older cousin Christian are usually the ones who train her. They both own her.
My SAE is based around horses. I own one horse, whom I am planning to show this coming year. Tag is very talented when it comes to English flat work, so we will be competing in such competitions. He is currently my only horse, and in order to compete in harder shows I will need to get a more advanced horse. Until then, we will compete in beginner shows.
An interest I am most proud of is my career in competitive gymnastics. When I first began gymnastics, I did it recreationally, but I soon fell in love with it and decided to compete. I am now into my fourth competition season. I have competed at meets all over California, and have practiced hundreds of hours. Gymnastics requires hard work and dedication, but it is worth it because I genuinely love the sport.
