I have recently got myself a new horse to return to riding. He is a 6 year old 17hh ott thoroughbred gelding. He is a very friendly boy and reasonably quiet,however he has buddied up with my husbands new horse (also an ott thoroughbred gelding).
I have always had 14-15hh ASH or qaurterhorses so for now his height is a little intimidating
Fatty has been out of work for a while and I would love any advice on how to bring him back into work and prepare him for some local ag/hack shows. He is lazy and I let him get away with a lot especially letting him in my space!
Whilst I attended pony club for a good 10 years my more recent riding has been trail rides and stock work so hacking is new to me!
I live in a small remote community in Australia so lessons are unavailable to me at the moment.
I would love any helpful advice on starting out all over again including tips for regaining confidence. Thanks
