Let me introduce Ace, a 16hh Shire x Appaloosa gelding who I work with at the local RDA school.

He's about 15 years old and has arthritis, so he only really does light work (walk and trot). He still does a little bit of dressage, which is something he's rather good at!

I've been working with him for over three years now, and like to think I know him quite well. He's become something of a sook towards me, trying to help me put things away in his grooming kit, and loves a good cuddle or a scratch. His favourite trick is to try and give me cuddles when I'm working with him!

Anyway, here's a few photos of His Lordship...

This rather crap shot is of me trotting on him!

Obviously doesn't want his picture taken!

Yours truly and Ace, posing for a shot on the RDA website:

He likes hats...!

Trying out a new rug...

Saddled up for a gentle hack around the RDA route...

Spruced up for a dressage show:

I dunno what he's doing here...

I call this his "kelpie" pose, as this shot reminds me of a sculpture that's being built here in Scotland!

My favourite picture of him. He's managing to pull off the "I'm cute" look quite well here!

Remember I said he likes hats??


These last two were taken with my cheap mobile phone camera - they came out quite well!

Finally, I took these ones just before Christmas, as I hadn't managed to get any pics of the horses in the snow yet.

My favourite "snow shot":

"If you don't put it away, it'll freeze and fall off!"

Bosom buddies:

"I think I'm being followed..."

"I'm definitely being followed...."

"Ha! See? It didn't freeze and fall off after all!"

What a handsome big boy he is. I think he pulls off the cute thing in many of his photos, actually.

Wow, he certainly is a gorgeous boy. What color is he, blue roan?
    04-07-2010, 05:31 PM
No, he's a sort of black roan colour. Being a Shire x Appaloosa, it's given him a rather strange coat!

Oww, your boy is gorgeous. Love his color and so fluffy breed, hihi
    04-07-2010, 07:03 PM
I love him! How tall is he?
    04-07-2010, 07:08 PM
He's our tallest RDA horse at 16hh. His specialist subject is "cuddles"!
