Me riding Kenny circa 1988.  I was nine and we are about to ride my first ever dressage test!  He was the nicest and most well behaved stallion I have ever met!
This is a fun post, that shows many horses of my past, as well as Kenny and Sparky, my Sparky's sire and dam!  And here is another post about Sparky's famous relatives!
