    Hello from a new member


    I've just joined this forum (waves to everyone)

    I'm from Scotland, 45 years old and have been riding for 11 years (late starter!)

    I have a retired TB Gelding, 25 years old, a little 11.1hh section A - who just went to his lovely new loan home today with the sweetest little 4 year old rider - and tomorrow my new loan pony arrives, a 14hh gelding.

    As I retired my TB quite some time ago I have not done much riding recently so I am looking forward to getting back into the saddle. The pony I have taken on loan will be ideal I think - he is a quiet little guy - a "first pony" type - nothing like my hot headed TB who, while lovely to handle on the ground, was always too much horse for me if I am honest about my riding ability.

    So here is hoping I use this opportunity well and learn a lot with my new pony.

    Thanks for the nice welcome Piggy :) I am so excited about my new pony coming tomorrow!!! He is a good little jumping pony, but I have told myself that I must work on my flat work for a good few months before I even think about popping a fence!!

    Smile Hey there

    I'm also new here - and also a late starter So I fully understand that you want a calm and cool headed pony. I myself ride a very sweet and calm paint horse, sometimes I also ride the arab but she's too adrenalinic for me.

    How's weather up north?

    Hi Lenuccia :)

    My pony arrived tonight, he settled well into his new stable - went straight for his hay net!!!

    I am looking forward to going out on a little hack with him tomorrow

    It is dry tonight so I am hoping to get a dry day tomorrow too - but with living in Scotland I am used to riding in the rain lol

    Hi there,

    Did you get to try your pony today? If he's the one in the photo he must be really sweet
