Hello From Scotland

Hey, my names Keith and im from Motherwell, near glasgow. I have a friend who has horses and im really getting interested in them now, shes going to give me horse riding lessons (It was her old job) and after a year or so im hoping to get my own horse. I like Shire's and Percheron's, they're awesome.

Cheers,
Keith

Welcome Keith and enjoy the ride.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Hey, my friend just found a horse that I like! It's a Clydesdale and its 2 years old and it costs £500! Is that good?

Welcome to Horse Forum! You're going to so enjoy riding and learning all about good horsemanship and horse keeping.

Scotland is one of the places on this planet that I have always dreamed of riding. Have a friend that has gone on an equestrian vacation and said it was everything and more than she hoped for!

Have fun!

That's quite cheap for a Clydesdale, plus you've got 2 years before you can ride it (if thats what you are intending to do). Clydies are quite a slow maturing breed.

I would expect to pay at least £1500 for a registered 2 year old Clydesdale.

Nevermind, it was sold :( It's original price was £2000 but it was £500 to me because of Fiona (My friend). I'm interested in 3 horses, Irish Draught, Shire or a Clydesdale.
