Talking Hello from the wet UK

HELLO EVERYONE

I'm from the UK, not sure if this is a UK forum or not, i started riding as a child then worked as a riding instructor, later on i helped out with horses on and off for a few years hten five years ago i had a horse on loan who had been totally ruined by it's owner, sadly i had a bad injury and it knocked my confidence, i rode just once more as i wanted to end my riding life on a good point.

Lately the bug got in my system again, i was looking after several youngsters until the owner and i parted ways, so i decided to search for a weight carrier to just do light hacking but i havn't found anything to carry me BUT at 38 yrs old i'm finally about to become the proud owner of a shetland stallion, all being well he arrives tue and will be the first horse i've owned, i'm hoping we will be succesful at showing i'm so excited, He is called Barney Rubble lol

Oh i also have cats, dogs, guinea pigs and ferrets :)

I am from the UK too, Shetland to be exact. So of course I have shetlands 10 of them, imo the best breed in the world.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.
