Hi from South Australia
 
Just saying hi, as a brand new forum member.

I'm not only new to the forum, but I'm pretty new to riding, and to horses as well. My partner and I have been having riding lessons for about six months, and have just surprised ourselves by buying our first horse! He's a 10yo Clydie/Thoroughbred cross, and he's being agisted at the riding school that we're getting lessons through, which works really well for us because it ensures that Dubbin gets good care while we are still "learning the ropes" about horse ownership and care. I'm currently discovering all about just how expensive and time-consuming horse ownership can be... and loving every minute of it!

So yeah, hello folks! Pleased to meet you all. :-)

Indeed! I've definitely had my moments of OMG, What have I gotten myself into? (along with episodes of this horse is gonna get me fit if it kills me!) But then I find myself astride Dubbin and trotting cheerfully around the arena, and it all comes together in a big resounding HELLYEAH!

(I won't mention those sore, sore muscles the next day, though...)

Sure! Here's a coupla pics. I don't, as yet, have a lot of Awesomely Artistic Photos of Dubbin, but these should do for a start!

....erm, I would post the pics, but they don't seem to be showing up here in the post preview. Are they gonna miraculously appear here later? Or am I doing something horribly wrong (either clicking on the "insert image" icon and pasting the image location from the Flickr page, or putting the same URL inside [ IMG ] tags)?

Okay, lets try again. This time adding the images as attachments rather than linking to them directly....

Here's me riding Dubbin:

Hmm. This seems to be working, at least as far as the preview pane goes. Here goes nothing...
