Thought I should introduce myself,
About the human-
My names Makhala,
Lived in Australia (Queensland) my whole life,
Recently started working on a ASH stud farm :)
About the horse -
8yo OTT Thoroughbred gelding,
The info about us both ~
I decided to join the forum partially because I'm moving to a rural area and I'll have nobody who really knows horses around me anymore- guess it's to stop me getting lonely haha - and considering the farm I'm moving to is ASH's ... and I have a pretty show pony Thoroughbred (and I plan on keeping him that way!) might be a little difficult :)
I brought Albie earlier in the year, we have a little bit of a long story - but I ended up with him after we were hit by a 9m flood, he was underweight (badly) and had a few discipline issues. He was retired as a RaceHorse not long before I got him. I've had him for 11 months now and he's a very prancy horse, /loves/ jumping - to the point that if I put a food bucket (or something small) in the area I'm lunging him he will line it up for a jump, we're working on a few minor things at the moment, like he's been throwing his head back at me pretty badly lately, and in going back to basics with his flat work. I like practicing natural horsemanship with him, I've found it verrrry helpful :)
A photo of us :)
Back to racing days (aka a day at the beach haha)
Before anyone comments, yes I know I should be wearing a helmet, and no I don't usually ride without one.
Talk to you all soon!
