Hey there, I'm Coti. 20. This is my blog.
Sometimes I'm on here nonstop and sometimes I'm gone for days and you won't see a thing.
I am an avid equestrian that has grown up "in the life" since my dad is a horse trainer.
I started off western but I fell in love with jumping so now I mainly do Eventing.
I have a 5 year old Hanoverian/TB gelding that I gentled and started under saddle myself. His name is Smarty. :)
My first true love was... is Kid. My first horse. A quarter horse gelding that taught me how to ride. I put him down in May of 2013 after a all night battle with colic. My heart shattered that day.
I have an aussie named Nacho that is the apple of my eye.. and a yellow cat named Dog that I adore.
I work full time to pay for all my own stuff so sometimes you will see highly emotional rants about money... or lack of.
I love answering questions so fire away at e=mc^2.

what?

The wheels take impact and stress off your legs, and the position helps your spine, but you’re still doing running motions instead of biking motions, so your legs are getting a good workout, and you can go for longer

nerdy shit aside, iamgine how sick it must be to just let those feet fly into the air and do superman poses down a highway

Quite possibly the greatest round of show jumping I have seen in my years. This jump-off was absolutely mind-blowing, I could hardly believe what I was watching. Everyone needs to see this video.

There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

To everyone who says my pony is to small to event, meet Theodore o’connor aka teddy, he is 14.1hh and has won/competed at badminton, rolex, burghley and so many more CCI**** events. Its whats in the heart that counts

The eventing world still misses you every day, Super Pony. Rest in Peace.

Aw yay i found my post!! this was posted on my original blog but when i de-activated it i lost this post! And to link to my first comment, me and my 14.2hh are starting British Eventing this year! See you at Rolex;D We will always love you teddy, You are my inspiration and even though you were so much smaller than the rest, you had the biggest heart. As does my little man. RIP beautiful boy, You truly were something special. 

He only ever competed at Rolex (twice, his first time in 2007 placing 3rd and his second time in 2008 placing 6th), but he was indeed a pretty awesome pony.
