Red face Invasion of yet another KIWI

Hi guys, my name is Louise and I live in NZ.
I own an 18.2hh 5 year old grey/white pinto geilding called Pintado Taihoa (Tai).
I mainly do eventing, but have been doing dressage and showing the past few seasons while we wait for Tai to stop growing.
We have very high hopes for Tai and have been told by many top riders he has GP dressage/4 star eventing potential. Not bad for a sight unseen purchase who was meant to be 16.3hh and cost less than a horse off the dog tucker truck Tai is the love of my life, well, next to my partner. I'm waiting for a kidney transplant so have good and bad days, Tai keeps me going for sure!

So tell me about yourselves?? I can't wait to meet you all

Hey, welcome to the forum, we are always glad to welcome another member. Tai is absolutely stunning, I love a dapple gray. Also, good luck on getting the kidney transplant, I hope it happens soon.

Excuse me, I forgot the standard Texas Welcome LOL.

Howdy!!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He's a freak, you MUST get rid of him immediately!! Fortunately, I am willing to take him off your hands LOL.
