Never Judge

So I've had a rough year where I was in hospital as I had surgery on my spine. I wasnt allowed to ride for 9 months and when I was finally allowed to ride my riding instructor had left the pony club and a new lady had taken over and she doesnt want me injuring my back so does not allow me to ride much out there even though I have 3 doctors, 1 being my specialist, saying I can fully ride again. But anyway, its been difficult and we decided to buy a horse for me as horse riding has always been everything to me and not being allowed to ride...well it broke my heart.
So we looked here and there before we one day went into the tack shop and my friends mum works there and she said she may have a horse for sale and that shed drop into my house to talk about it after work.
She came after work, asked me some questions about how I ride, what I want to do etc and said she has a brown horse for sale...and that is where my story begins.
We went and saw him, got told he's 6 year old, unraced, was too slow to even be tried and when we saw him, he was gorgeous! I didnt think it would be him who was for sale but it was and we agreed to try him out, he was so slow and steady I found myself smitten straight away and so a few weeks later we purchased him and ever since we've been fighting everyone about his height and age. He has such a heart of gold and has never done anything wrong or tried to intentionally hurt me that it pains me that people hate him and 'dog' about him to others. He's so amazing to me and I feel so close to him and sure, we still have alot to teach eachother, but the fact they are judging him makes me sad. Its incredibly immature, one of my close friends told me to sell him and get a 20 year old 14hh horse. So I made this awhile back because I was really upset but wanted to show you it coz I think its a beautiful photo of him.

I also thought I'd share this photo of me riding him out there as he looks quite good in this photo.

What Im trying to say here is never judge a book by its cover, or in this case its age and height.

Here are some photos from the day I took him to the pony club...when everyone came up and judged him :/

^u can see the cut on his leg he got fromm the faulty float we borrowed... he had 3 other bloody cuts that had to be cleaned and looked after quite alot

How tall is he? Hard to say from the pics but he looks great. Nevermind what others say. They're probably jealous or wannabe know it alls.

For a 6 year old he looks like a real gentleman and would take care of you :)

He looks like a sweetie. If he makes you happy and is as good as you say I wouldn't listen to everyone else. I don't think height has anything to do with how good a horse is apart from it being too small or big for you. Sometimes age does come into it but I have met some really young horses that I would trust with young/nervous people over older horses.

If he makes you happy, then everything else is just background noise! Growing up my friend had a huge TB that was only 4 yrs old. Can you say dead-head?? Would hardly go into a canter and even that was slower than all get out! We'd give her a huge head start when we wanted to canter a straight away and within a few yards I'd pass her and leave her behind. A calm horse comes in all ages, very happy for you and keep the photos coming!

Don't let what others say bother you. If you are happy & you know he's right for you, what does it matter what anyone else thinks? Just prove them all wrong, let if be your fuel!

Do not ever let anyone bring you down! They are all just jerks. He looks like he is a great horse and will take great care of you. Horses sense things, I swear they are geniuses. He knows somewhere in his little horsey brain about your back and your story and knows that he has to take care of you. Just like you take care of him. He is your heart horse. Do not let anyone tell you differently. :)
