    Talking Newbie from UK!

    Hello!

    I'm Natalia I'm 18 and I live in the United Kingdom (rain, rain, rain, and more rain!) Anyone else out there a Brit?

    I've been riding since I was 8 but I haven't ridden in around 2 years due to our old traditional piebald cob Charlie dying from what we believe was grass sickness.

    Cobs are my favorite type of horse, I love feathers and hair, can't beat a good old hairy horse!

    I did however enjoy hacking and popping over the odd daredevil jump!
    We have 4 horses/ponies:

    Susie is a 6 year old Cob mare, who we've only just bought a week ago:

    Foxy is a 6 year old Thoroughbred mare, and here's her attempting to help muck out:


    There's also the two Shetlands:

    Apple the mare:

    And Tommy the Gelding:

    So there's the gang, I look forward to meeting you all and seeing picture of your nags!

    Hi!
    Welcome to the forum, I can assure you there are a good few Brits floating around, myself included. I live in Kent ^^
    Also I happen to LOVE cobs too. Your horses look great. I kind of want to steal apple but susie is LOVELY. She has a really kind face :)
    My girl's passport calls her a 'cob type'. She's not as heavy as susie, which is a shame coz I love feather, but she's still pretty awesome. I also used to have a lovely cob mare imported from Ireland but she had to be put down last year. My other little thing is a Welsh X New forest gelding. :)

    I've never been to Norfolk, Only Suffolk which is right next door. There really were A LOT of pigs there. Lol

    Hiya back, and hiya is not an expression I hear to often since I lived in the US.
    I am from Cheshire, so I suppose I am the only northerner so far to respond!

    I'm from cumbria so I guess i'm the furthest north until someone from Scotland replies haha. Welcome, I love your cob! Cobs are my favourites too, along with anything native dales, fell etc. I have a couple of shetlands also which my little girl will eventually ride. Look forward to reading your posts =0)

    Smile hi from the west mids

    Hi my name's Sarah I have just joined, so please forgive if I post anything in the wron place lol, I have to get the hang of this. I have been riding since I was 6, and had a couple of pony's on loan while growing, then I had a long break and decided to have a mare on loan a couple of years ago, but sadly after a bad fall I had to give her up and resigned myself to being horseless, but then out of the blue I got the chance to buy a mare that I had liked for ages, she had been put onto a riding school, they cared for her and she had everything she needed but the lifestyle just didn't work for her and she was very, very depressed she became anti social, started dropping lots of weight despite her diet and basically just looked lost, so they let me buy her and it all came together quickly and I have my Pan (pandora) within a week on the new yard she stopped biting, her ears came forward and she has never once moved away from me when I have gone to her, she is lovely it seems like she was always part of this group, they accepted her with no issues and it's all good,
    Hope to hear from you all soon and also I coudl so with some horsey hoof advice xx
