Meet Teddy :D, Teddy is a 20yr old cob :) he's 16.3 ish, and is a gentle giant. I've only ridden him twice, and the video shows how bad my riding is. I haven't cantered him yet, he's big and i'm not used to him - but i'm sure within time you'll see videos of us cantering ;) lol. In the video, it was windy that day and the horses kept spooking - thats why my riding isnt that great also. I hadn't ridden in 4 weeks till I rode him either, and he's the second horse I've ever ridden and my first out of a riding school! He's strong, but then he is a big boy, but I love him all the same. He's so sweet. I've ridden him again since, and he's lovely. Hes an ex riding school horse, and is getting old. But being out in the summer, his owner hasn't had alot of time to keep him ridden, so he's got fat :( so thats where I come in. My task is to keep him ridden and get him fitter. When I go to put his bridle on, I put the reins over his neck, and because he's so big, he drops his head for me to reach his head to put his bridle on! The sweetest thing going. I'll get more pictures and videos over time :)

Oh, and if you've got a youtube account, PLEAASSEE subscribe to my videos. My page link is: YouTube - lauraa94x's Channel taaa :)

Anyways, here's the pictures and videos :D

(I know I needed to ride him more forward, but I also slowed the videos down to fit in with the song lol)

Sorry every comp. i go to has a block to youtube. Moving forward is stead pressure, or a crop. MOST horses dont need to be slapped but even a easy tap on the behind moves them out, or even the presence of a crop :p.

Good luck :D
