A canter is the cure for every evil

Ask me anything   Solomon   Nibbles   Jasper   

I'm Alyssa. I'm lucky enough to have 2 horses in my backyard, Chloe and Jasper. We have owned Chloe, our paint mare, for more than ten years. My paint horse, Solomon, was sold to a wonderful person, and we bought Jasper, the dapple grey, to replace him. Follow my sister at horsesjumpingcourses

Feb. 3, 1989: Apprentice jockey Nate Hubbard hung on for second literally when his horse, Sweetwater Oak, stumbled near the finish line at Golden Gate Fields and flipped the rider out of his saddle. As he tumbled forward, Hubbard grabbed on to the filly’s neck and hung in mid-air until the race was over. The track stewards ruled it an official finish because Hubbards feet never touched the ground and Sweetwater Oak carried her assigned weight throughout the race.
