Talking Hello, new here!

Hello, I am a brand new member here and would like to say hello!

I live in England with my 2 year old appaloosa gelding - Ben. He's my cheeky little dude who will hopefully become a great all rounder for me to try a bit of everything on.


So......hi! I would love to know who everyone is, what horses they have (especially any appy owners out there!) and what they do with them??

Welcome, he sure is a looker. I second Tiny, he looks like he has some TB in him. I used to own an App/TB and we did hunter. I also live in England but i am currently in Canada for a couple months.

Hi everyone! Thanks for the lovely comments, I will pass them on to Ben!

He is 3/4 appaloosa and 1/4 I'm not too sure..... I have been told the 1/4 (his grand-dam) was a cob and then a dales pony....so not 100% to be perfectly honest!

He does seem to have quite a bit of thoroughbred further back in his bloodlines, so maybe he's a bit of a throwback genetics wise....

Welcome to the forum!! Ben is gorgeous! My neighbor's granddaughter has an appy gelding that I help look after, his name is Playboy.

Being horseless is the pits!!
