Thank you :) I'm sure your filly will be a stunner as well when she's all grown up.

Lovely to see all these TB's - they are a very much misaligned and misunderstood breed - we have had several and they were all lovely horses with so much to offer.

Sorry - just realised my pictures didnt work, so I thought I'd repost :)

Love this thread - I'm a huge TB/OTTB lover.

I have two horses to share: Pepe and Dimka.

Pepe: 15.2hh Brown OTTB Gelding

I learnt to ride on this horse in the last 11months, going from a girl who could not rise trot, and was bucked/thrown/bolted off by Pepe, to the confident rider I am today. He was offered for sale to me by his owner many a time but I did not have the time and money to support him unfortnuately so he went up for lease (and still available for sale) to a friend of mine. This horse, along with my instructors, has taught me the good and the bad of horse riding with a few tumbles along the way (all which were my fault, except one).
We had our ups and downs, but over the time we had created a bond strong enough to get us through the hard times and laugh together with the good times.

I was able to help move him and settle him into his new home, and also go to his first outing (PC) since racing and have heard he is going really well, so I am really happy he and my friend are happy together.
This quirky horse will always hold a special place in my heart.
This boy made me love OTTBs..

I've included a few pictures of him (including a picture from one of my first lessons!)

Now on to Dimka. (16.3hh Chestnut OTTB Gelding)

I had been looking for a horse to ride due to the horse I had been riding for the last 11mo was being leased out, and the other horses which his owner had I did not feel would challenge me and help me improve my riding.
After looking for about a month, I was approached by one of the girls I have met previously at the riding school I worked for - her mum had stepped in to do some instructing whilst my instructor was out of action - spoke with me and suggested a few horses which live on her property.
One of those suggested was a 16.3hh Chestnut TB gelding, who was at the PC day I was attending with my previous riding horse and his leasee.

That is how I ended up riding Dimka (I am riding him 3x a week - but not currently as I have a broken wrist as a result of riding). Since riding him he is now going on the bit and we are working on working in frame and also jumping (including landing on the correct lead). I have a riding blog which has a blog from when I met him, until current. Here's the link: http://www.horseforum.com/member-journals/~riding-blog~-halleyscomet-dimka-255618/

Here are some pictures (many more of Dimka and I are in the blog )

This is Casady Brook Hill. I got him as a 5 y.o. OTTB and he was my first horse. I was lucky that he didn't kill me because we were both so green but over the 10 years I owned him he taught me more about horses and riding than any trainer could have. He passed away last year at the age of 16 due to a terrible bout of colic. These pictures are from the first year I owned him...he definitely wasn't ready for showing and neither was I but things got better from here!

'My' new tb. Her owner is a close friend who I break and ride horses for. I was with her when she picked this beauty up from the track. She's asked me to retrain her and said I could use her for anything I wanted. She's being just started and taught to trust again after being abused by a trainer with a heavy drinking habit as well as a heavy temper. I'm hoping to use her for either eventing or jumping when I get out of college and she turns 5. She's only been ridden twice since coming off the track this summer and she's only three currently. Her racing name is Pinkilicious.
