Im new =[ hehe
Just came on here really for some advice/tips from others.
Not had a lot of luck with my horses really! So it will be good to get some help from some different people instead of my normal shoulder cry-ons hehe.
Anyway i'm from the UK (Gloucestershire)
Recently bought my fourth horse (all my own this time :P) as before I had to share with cousins etc. So yes this ones all mine :P
All gone wrong though =[
He's a 14 year old, coloured 14.2 ex BSJA pony called Splash
Took him for his first fun ride after having him a month last weekend and he bolted blind twice and leaping about like a youngster. Never seen nothing like it especially from a 14 year old!
Anyway, only took him as I was reasurred over and over again he was forward going but 100% safe, sensible, sane etc and absolutely fine in an open field after being hunted and doing hunter trials....and I needed a forward going but safe pony as id recently come a right cropper after riding an event horse that bolted blind in a field and jumped two five bar gates with me, not fun! I had to jump off =[
Well! Obviously I was mis-led, its all got a bit nasty and going to court as the previous owners will not have him back even after signing an agreement saying he was a 100% allrounder..lovely :)
Spoke to his old trainer who told me she would never put him in an open field situation as he was very strong-willed (to say the least I tell you!) and it would blow his mind as he's been in schools all his life just show jumping. Bless him. It's not his fault. Just a bit gutting really!
Sorry about the long one just thought i'd get you up to date!
