Six months ago i met Sheila for the first time. We started dating from time to time. First we only dated irregular.. but then we started dating every weekend. We enjoyed long rides and also went swimming with the horses. But this weekend was different. Sheila and I visited a lovely field of poppies and wanted to watch the sun going down. She asked me to leave Fire's back and helping her down since her mare isn't the easiest when someone wants to go down. She took advantage of this moment and asked me if I want to be her girlfriend. I couldn't say no so she leaned down and kissed me.
While editing this pic I was listening to this sound the whole time Listen

Full Size // Music "The first time meeting Emma, I couldn't understand this feeling that I had inside of me. Her sassy attitude, and her rather careless demeanor actually sparked hope in me, I think. Once I got to know her, I was almost ecstatic to find this caring individual. We hit it off pretty hard, and as we got closer and closer, I was there for her during some hard times. Honestly, I don't think I'd trade the world for any of those moments, because that has built a strong foundation for our love. I don't want anyone else, I only want Emma." ~ Genevieve

Gulf Nystrom & Rome Lupin
It wasn't often that Gulf let his guard down, allowing Rome to see the softer side of the older man who kept everyone at arm's length and rarely looked approachable or friendly. Most of their friends were used to Gulf's bad temper and scowling face; in comparison Rome was a boundless source of smiles and hugs who somehow just seemed to get away with everything when it came to his boyfriend. When Gulf's shouts and cursing would send most people scuttling away, Rome would simply just smother the other with hugs and affection until he got his way. But when they ventured off on their own, away from curious friends Gulf would accept the younger one's company and affection without a battle.

I don't have a picture for the story, but I hope you enjoy anyway
She didn't really know when exactly she started feeling something for the younger rider. She couldn't pin-point the moment it started, but what she could pin-point was the moment she realised she had these feelings. In the beginning she was worried Daeira wouldn't feel the same for her, and at the same time it had only been 1.5 years since her husband passed. She wasn't even sure she was ready for a new relationship, especially one with a woman. She thought she was straight but the feelings bubbling up in her chest whenever she saw Daeira proved she might be something else, maybe Bi?
With everyday passing, she could feel herself falling deeper in love with Daeira. She would catch herself anticipating when the younger rider would arrive, and would also catch herself becoming restless when she was soon to arrive. She couldn't keep her eyes off of Daeira whenever she trained dressage with Persephone or when she took Chan for a ride in the jumping ring. She felt like she would burst from all these feelings inside her, yet she couldn't bring herself to tell the younger rider. In the end it was Daeira that confessed her feelings first.
It was a crisp and bright June morning when Daeira arrived at the stables, prepared to finally tell Morgana about her feelings for her, and how they had kept building up over the time she knew Morgana. But first up was to take Chan for a morning ride so he wouldn't be prissy for the lesson later on in the afternoon. Since it was still pretty early the horses had yet to be put out in their paddocks, so Chan was just standing half asleep in his stall. Daeira went to grab his morning vitamins and took a few treats for his next-door stall mate, Elliot. As if on que with the rummaging in the treat bin, Elliot poked his furry little head over the stall door, already making small happy noises. Daeira went and put her treat filled hand out for Elliot and stroked her other hand down the slope of his head while he happily ate the small treats. When he realised she didn't have more treats for him, he moved back to nibble on his hay, while Daeira went over to Chan who had woken more up due to Elliots happy treat noises.
After giving Chan the vitamins, she led him out of his stall towards the grooming stalls nearby. While he stood and slept a bit more in the grooming stall, Daeira went and got all of his saddle and bridle. Since Chan wasn't fuzzy about being saddle up, it didn't take long until Daeira was leading him out to the arena. Getting into the saddle was easy and not long after Chan was walking slowly around the arena with Daeira on his back. For about 10 minutes she had him walk before guiding him into a trot. Not more than a few minutes later something spooked Chan and he lunged sideways, throwing Daeira out of the saddle and onto the ground.
She couldn't have lain in the sand for more than a minute when she heard footsteps running towards her and someone one calling out "Emilia go take Chan!". It all seemed a bit blurry and it was ringing a bit in her ears. Someone sat down in the sand next to her and slowly pulled her up into a sitting position. Her vision seemed to get clearer and she could now see it was Morgana who had come to check on her. Morgana was craddling Daeira's face and checking to see if she was hurt anywhere. Daeira really couldn't stop herself from saying "You know, you look very pretty when you worry about me Morgana". She looked directly into Morgana's eyes and watched how her eyes softened and her cheeks started tinting red. Morgana scoffed at Daeira's words though and simply stated that Daeira must have hurt her head during the fall. "Yeah right, as if a concussion would've made you less pretty love" Daeira said and as the words left her mouth, Morgana stopped and looked at Daeira. Daeira realised what she had said and hastely exclaimed that if Morgana didn't like her that way, Daeira wouldn't call her that. Morgana felt like she was floating on cloud 9 and immediatly proceded to tell Daeira the way she felt about her.
They must have been sitting in the sand for at least 5 minutes, just telling eachother about their feelings, when they heard Emilia yell across the lot "Just kiss already!". And with a smile playing on her lips, Daeira leaned down and pressed her lips softly against Morgana's, hoping that this kiss was the first of many.

The pride parade had come to town. A number of members of the community had put there names forward to do a performance or display of some kind for an audience. Santiago put his name down for displaying join up with his unbroken stallion Wayward What You Need. Here they are having a practice to make sure the youngster was ok with the flags before the big day!
Rachel had never known what it was like to be in love until the second she looked in Laura's hazel eyes. And when the young detective gave her a wink and a smile she knew she was lost forever. She was prepared to take a bullet for her, never expecting that thought would ever become reality. When Laura got into trouble during one of her first cases, it was Rachel who saved her life by risking hers. Luckily the strong raven-haired woman survived and the detective and she quickly became inseparable. From dusk til dawn Laura stayed by Rachel's hospital bedside. Praying for her recovery, reading her stories, talking to her and playing her music. During one song in particular Rachel openend her eyes again: Heaven by Brian Adams. The overly enthousiastic Laura flew in her arms and they kissed. This song became the opining theme for their love story. It only makes sense that this was their first dance today, on their wedding day!

Pilgrim & Gulliver
Dutch Warmblood Stallions
ever in a million years did the owner of the Riddermark Equestrian Center, Rebecca Matthews, think that she would have to explain to visitors who came to visit the stables as to how she was able to keep two fully grown stallions in the same paddock year-round. She had never heard of a thing like this herself but she wasn't complaining! She often told people that they would never be able to find any other two stallions who were so deeply, and truly, in love with each other... Or hay, for that matter. They hated being separated so much that it took weeks of planning and preparation by her breeding manager just to get them ready for the breeding season. Neither were interested in the mares, even during heat! It was unheard of and the boys even had their veterinarian stumped. They were two peas in a pod and they did not like to be separated!
