Hello,

I know this has probably been done to death but I've been looking back through old posts and you can no longer see a lot of the photos.

Just wondering if people could post before and after pictures of there horses.
Be that from youngster to adult or before and after backing and everything in between

Thank you

This is my mare when I took her on march last year after being turned away for winter -



And this is her now as an 8 year old in full work -

Nowhere near the end! 15.3 1/2. 7 years. Flying changes, half pass, and plenty more to come :)

Here's Kira, the current project :p

Day one, Aug 2014



first show in June 2015


Training earlier this year


She's been heartachingly bad and fabulous fun in equal measure :D Started out needing to be rebacked and is now training towards advanced, clever little wotsit.

She is also the cutest horse in existence...

Hopefully the link works as can't work out how to post a pic!

The first is when I tried him and the second is 3 years later at Trailblazers Finals a few weeks ago. In between that time I had a baby so don't get to ride as I would like.
He's the best horse I could ever wish for a dream come true ❤️

At the yard
At dealers as a novice completely bombproof 14.2hh dressage cob:

As a 13.2hh completely unsafe cob who would bite your hand if you tried to catch her and kicked at any provocation:

Now as a cob who doesn't bother about any type of traffic will do anything for you as long as she trusts you and whom I will be riding in another month or so:

My daughters "safe as houses, bombproof, one in a million, been there done it got the t shirt" pony- which actually translates to: just broken, terrified of its own shadow, badly treated, farrier hating, forged passport pony.



To now:
Loves children, trusts his "family" but no one else, loving life, abit overweight, honest & trying. Still doesn't like the farrier but getting better.

All of these transformations are brilliant, but I must admit I am a SUCKER for a gorgeous grey. Beautiful.

This is Jake as a foal (look at the size of those knees! He was going to be a biggun from day 1. Sire and dam both 16hh, he was a smidge over 18hh at 9yo)



This is Jake as an 8yo when I first got him in the November having been turned away for a couple of years.



This is him in the April, so 6.5 months later.

Fit to fat in three weeks ... impressive ;)
It's not a great picture due to the angle, was more to show the change to the muscle in her quarters, but I assure you she is not fat.
These were taken a few days after that second picture, so please wind your neck in :)

Some lovely transformations!

Wagtail, I love your mare.

Here's Luna, aged 3, rising 4 in March 2016






And this summer as a 5 year old, slightly lacking ridden photos unfortunately!







We may qualify for a fit to fat comment though! :D
