Smile Any standie owners out there?

Hello everyone,I am new to this forum and as my first post I was wondering if there is any standardbred owners out there?

I have a 15.3hh bay mre called kiera who is in the process of being backed at the moment.

I would love to hear about other people`s.

Welcome to the forum Tillyxkiera! I am a proud standie owner. Didn't know much about them till I saw my girl. I'm totally sold on them now. In fact, I remember turning my nose up at the mention of them. Such sensible horses they have proven themselves to be.

It seems to me like there is a small but strong contingency of STB fans out there.

Hope everything goes well with yours! Post pics if you have them.

I have 3 at the moment. A 21 year old retiree gelding. A 10 year old mare I am bringing back in to work after having 4 years off as a broodie. And an 8 year old unstarted gelding.

The horse we lost in October was also a beautiful Standie. 8 year old unstarted gelding.

SilverSpur: Beautiful horses! Wonderful pictures!

HowClever: Sorry about your loss. How sad. Props to you for taking in a retiree, a broodie, and an unstarted gelding. I bet they are all great horses. I love every type, but I have a soft spot for the broodies. =)

I have what we think is a standie or standie cross. He was a rescue but looks great now and is at the trainer's at the moment. I love him, he is my first horse and a good one so far. He is about three years old.

These pictures were taken a month and a half after I got him, and he gained probably 100 lbs in that time.

I have a STB mare, named Abby :) She was my first horse. She is super sweet! But can get spooky and hyper. She used to race but now she is for riding. I love the breed!

Not to be biased but I honestly think standies have some of the most endearing and beautiful faces. Seeing all of these photos just reassures that. Lol ok, maybe I am just a little biased.
