Friesian daft from Scotland! :-)

Hello!!
I have just joined the horse forum today and thought I would introduce myself!

I am 23 from outside Edinburgh in Scotland. Unfortunately I don't have a horse at the moment but I am half way through saving for one at the moment. Im here to learn as much info as possible on owning a horse and currently share a x Thoroughbred at the moment.

Im looking for some advice/opinions please! I am saving for a Friesian, gelding for mainly hacking and school work..no shows etc as I don't have the confidence for that lol! I've got a Friesian Experiance riding day booked to learn more and meet my first friesian...so excited!! Just looking for some thoughts on a friesian as a first horse? From what I've researched so far they are pretty calm, affectionaye and love to please! Also, is there anything else I should do to prepare myself for owning my first horse?

I appreciate all advice given! Many thanks
Ashley

Welcome to the forum. I joined last Feb, and have learned so much and continue to each day. I got back in the saddle after not having ridden for over forty years. I owned a horse in my teens and twenties. Took a detour, married a submariner, had two children. That life was not conducive to having a horse. After being diagnoised with ovarian cancer three and a half years ago, I decided no matter what,Ni would have horses in my life one way or the other.oh what wonderful theraphy. I look forward to hearing your journey! Took a trip to Scotland a couple of years ago loved it. Judy

just out of curiosity, why a Fresian? I would not think them a very practical horse for going pony trekking in the heather. Why not one of the wonderful local breeds?
