Introduce yourself :D

There aren't many of us on this forum and I think it is about time us Britts introduced ourselves to each other. I wanna know where your from and what horses you have, what you do with them etc.

ok me...
Im from Shropshire
My horse's name is Country Man (stable name- William). He is a mahogany bay anglo arab.
I have had him for 6 months and we had our 1st SJ competition last monday :D, in the summer I want to do lots of showing ready for september when I am off to Aberystwyth University (taking my horse with me) and wanting to compete on the team :)

Tell me about you and your horses...

hello fellow UK members!! Nice to meet you all.

I am brand new here so this is a good way to say hello.

I don't ride any more due to having lost most of my confidence but my friend has two eventers so I go to a lot of events with her, or just go to the farm where I enjoy being around the horses.

I'm hoping that one day I'll pluck up the courage to get back on a horse and go for a **** good gallop like I used to when I was a kid.

Hi! I'm so excited to be a member of this site. I haven't got a horse (I've not even ridden one! The closest I've ever come to riding was a couple of times on a donkey on the beach.) but I like them, and I'd love to have one.

Looking forward to meeting you and your horses!

love the colour purple! dont think it would suit my boy though, although i do have a purple lead rope :)

Put a jump up in the field today, ready for some summer training, hope that goes well, for some reason he doesnt like being ridden in the field :s

doe he get excited in the field? or is it more of a grump?
hob-knob gets grumpy in the field because he just wants to follow the other horses, whiskey gets excited though and wont stay still.

no its like 'i dont want to go in the field, i want to go explore!'. If i ride him towards the field he will stop and turn towards the driveway, im hoping the jump will encourage him, he loves jumping.

thanks!! Im a bit of a cob nut lol

I dont really know yet I would like to do some 'endurance rides' with him (just 10 -20 milers) and try cross country when he is older but probably just the schooling days and if we managed anything at any local shows that would be great!

I waited sooo long for him as long as we're both fit and happy I dont mind really.

how about you what are you into?
