Thank you for everyhing Rico. You became my symbol... My symbol that everyhing is possible if you belive and fight for it!

Here you can find the last video made in honor of Rico showing some of our best moments:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfwdFpqyS5s


the first time I saw the movie Spirit the Stallion of the Cimarron I thought rico .. it describes him very well of mind ...

Excuse my really bad english!

Let me start by saying that rico is entirely his own .. He has his own opinions, his own ideas and his own beliefs. He is a horse who does not take in anything that does not fit him and he is not afraid to use defense instead of escape!
he relates only to one person .. but he is very loving to the one person that I am fortunate to be ..
but I had it taken looong time to come to grips with him and our journey on the fight for friendship is not over enduring! <3

I started riding rico on my riding school in 2009 .. but it has happened from day to day and today can not be described in words .. I bought him because he had an injury and had to be slaughtered. He was also unruly and dangerous. But I think everyone deserves a second chance and with the help of new methods he has become so much more than I imagined. He still has his days and bad sides which are hard to get rid of. He stands alone on a fence next to the other horses when he destroys all fencing.
Today he is my soul mate and my best buddy .. (:

Write to me if you don't understand what I am writting! :)

Lie down
Lift leg
Spanish steps

Tuesday d.6 / 8 -2013 my soul mate flew to heaven...
Now I see only darkness and my heart is bleeding! But I am so PROUD of him and US!
He is with me every day in my heart and my merory because he changed my life forever!
Rico I miss you more than I can descripe with any words and I just want you back to stop the tears... But I know that I gave you everything I could...
You saved me and I saved you and I am so thankful for what we did and what you learned me!
You wil stay in my heart forever my soulmate and best friend!

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together..R.I.P Rico xx

    Hæhæ .
    Mange tak .
    Og tak for tippet, det vil jeg prøve .

  • 8 years ago

    Ahaha, har fået for vane at skrive på engelsk, også selvom det er til danskere xD.

    Jep, det rigtig svært..-.- Heldigvis (!) bliver folden delt ind til sommer, så håber jeg kan få lov til at bruge et stykke som bane!
    Men på trods af vi kun har folden, så har hun alligevel været dygtig til at lære at neje, og vi prøver med spanske skridt . Hun skal bare strække benene, men hun forstår det simpelthen ikke -.-...

    Thank you for your comment to Natash .
    What a gorgeous Hafling . Nice tricks .
    I really wants to learn Natash Spanish walk, lie down and such stuff, but it's so hard to train when we only have the meadow to train and ride on /:.

    He is beautiful And I can understand what he is like I have a halflinger X and he is the same .I would not change him for the world . By the way I think your english is very good. Rated him outstanding because he has won over the odds and found someone to love him for himself.
