My new gelding!

Sooo...I bought my first horse yesterday! He's an ex racehorse. He won over $180,000! Total sweetheart :) 12 years old. 16 hands? According to his previous owner he sheds out a red bay in the summer. Also any name suggestions? They call him "Green" right now.

What's his registered name? Maybe you can find a name that suits him by starting there...

Congrats, I just bought my first horse too! I don't know about a name though, maybe you could tell us a little more about his personality or his registered name?

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Hmmm, well just based on the pics, the name "Cash" jumped out at me. Idk why.

His registered name is Green Riches. He's really nice. He's not hot, but he's got justt enough spunk to be really fun! He is sososoo tolerable of everything. He's not spooky at all. Although he gets a little impatient when he's tied up, and loves to chew on things. He's got a really cute personality. I took him over some crossrails on the lead today and as soon as he got the hang of it he would get so excited when we approached a jump :)

He's so handsome! LOVE Tb's :)
I'd prolly call him Richy or something like that. Maybe Teddy lol He looks like a wonderful horse ;)
Just curious how tall the girl in the pics is (is that you??) He doesn't look quite 16hh - possibly 15.2 area but could be wrong...

He's a handsome fella! My friend' TW is named Cash, & that is a totally different look. I've always liked the name "Prints" (w/that spelling)-it's different! Good luck w/him & how fun that he seems to like jumping.
