Hi from Aussie Land :)

Hey guys,
Thought I should introduce myself,
About the human-
My names Makhala,
I'm 19yo,
Lived in Australia (Queensland) my whole life,
Recently started working on a ASH stud farm :)

About the horse -
Albie,
8yo OTT Thoroughbred gelding,
16.3hh

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 :)

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!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
