Comet's Story

Thursday, February 3, 2011

I am who I am today, because of you.....

This is just me thanking the 2 awesome horses I have in my life (:


Growing up in a non-horse community, where everything is basically about the brands of clothes you wear, or what sport you play, I have always received tons of criticism for my passion for horses. Everyone can say I'm a freak or I'm stupid, but one thing they can't say is I don't love my horses. They are the only ones that allow me to be something that I don't get to be that often.....myself. They don't care how I dress, they don't care how I act, they don't care if I have make up on or how my hair looks. All they want is for me to take off the mask and love them. I can tell them things and they will listen, they will comfort, they will respond in something much more valuable than words. They may not be big fancy expensive show horses, but they're my friends, partners, therapists, family and to me that is priceless. Starlight and Comet have both helped me achieve so much more than what I could get from a horse show or volleyball match and no matter what horses come to me throughout my lifetime, these 2 will always be the 2 horses that changed my life and will always be the closest to my heart.


  1. really enjoyed watching the video.

    loved your post, very much reminds me of my time in school when i was first getting into horses, and I got my first horse sanibel. Keep doing what you're doing!

  2. Hi Lori. I am Z's Mom on the MWHT forum. I loved the video you posted there. You have every right to feel proud of yourself and of Comet.

    I had a horse that everyone hated as well. He was called by one trainer "the horse from hell". He ended up working at Grand Prix. I never gave up on him.

  3. Hi Sandra! Thanks for the compliment! That's awesome to hear about your horse making it all the way up to Grand Prix level! I think the best horses can sometimes come from being the underdogs because they finally learn that one person won't give up on them so they try harder than all the others.
