Thought i'd start a topic on our lovely STBs .
Poplar Charm is a 1998 16hh gelding. He is a Mahogany Bay with a couple of white hairs on his forehead.
'Dougie' is part of an adoption program i'm involved in.
I got him two years ago after a girl had decided he wasn't good enough for a dressage horse.
Since then Dougie and I have learnt sooooo much.
I was what John O'leary called a nervous rider. Due to a nasty accident I had when I was 9 I could get on and w/t/c but I was mentally terrified of hurting the horse.
In the two years i've had Dougie we've aced jumping (150cm- My height), love cross country and sporting and have given in to dressage. I admit it helps everything.
I love hearing about other STBs!!!!!
