Hi, I've been riding horses on and off, western and english, since I was 6, but I'm brand new to horse ownership.
This is my guy, Zorro, a 16hh 7 year old friesian gelding. I've had him for a week. He's an absolute sweetie pie and loves people. He follows you wherever you go, so easy to catch is an understatement. I'm boarding him at a place about 5 minutes from my house in the city, and he's a fast favorite among the other boarders who love his sweetness and gentle nature.
Here's him as a spry young lad.
Here he is the day I brought him home. It's hard to get a picture of him because he always needs to be RIGHT beside you.
I'm working with a trainer right now, he's a little rusty since his previous owner was in an accident and couldn't ride him anymore, and I'm a little rusty too. She's giving him a refresher course privately and I'm taking lessons on her multiple horses and on Zorro. She's putting me on placid horses, freshly broke horses, and rusty horses, so it's been a lot of fun and I've been learning a lot.
