My new horse and saddle

So my very first horse! We havent paid for him yet, because the owner is in no rush to get the money and we will pay by the end of the holidays. But we are paying for the saddle in the new few days.
But anyway, technically, He's mine

His name is Mustard, aka Mussy/Muzzie (However you want to spell that)
He's 6 years old.
Thoroughbred.
Approx 15.3-16.1hh
Never been raced, was bred to be raced but never got time so just broke him in as a pleasure horse.
Is the most attention-seeking horse I've ever met in my life! Loves his pats and cuddles and is so sweet and friendly.

So now for the picture overload... Ready...Get Set... GO!










Whats your guess on his size? We think he's about 16hh...

Congrats!! No guess on the size, but he sure is gorgeous. Glad to hear that you got him. I am sure you will do well with him :) Can't wait to see more photos!!

Thankyou so much ^^ I'm hoping to do pony club and maybe competing on him in the future, just for fun probably, but I've got a feeling if i were to try and do dressage test(not that I would since he's never done dressage, this an example) or something he'd walk out of the arena and walk over to the judges for pats and attention hes the attention seeking lol ;p

Thankyou Pumpkinz I will defiently keep you all updated.

Suprisingly he's incredibly lazy, but I'm always ready just in case he did try and take off. He did spook at this weird noise today but all he did was break into a trot forward and I pulled on the reins, turned his head(was getting ready to turn him in a circle) but he stopped straight away, looked back to where the noise and I made him walk past where he'd spooked and he was fine. It was a weird tyre screeching noise and a humming, the other horse there spooked as well at the same spot. He was fine otherwise, I cant wait to start trotting him :)
