im quite bored at the moment so im going to make a post so we can all show each other OUR horses. sometimes you just sit down and think.. god.. i own my OWN horse. not loan,not ride for someone else,not break but OWN a horse. up untill the start of the year i had only ever ridden my parents and my grandparents horses. as we own a stud there has always been alot of horses to ride but they were always someone elses horses or horses that had been given or lent to me to ride where it be from my family or their friends. so i know this is a total pointless post and your probably thinking ''what is this girl on?' lol... but i just wanted an excuse to post MY horses. ive only got 2 so i wont be long

ok to start.. when i turned 16 in 2008 i was given 350 pounds to do what i wished. and ofcourse what did i ask for? you got it, a horse of my own! now i knew that 350 wasnt alot these days so i knew i was only going to be able to get a2yr old or at the most a 3yrold. i wasnt worried about the halter brakeing or the actual beaking because ive had plenty of experience, **trust me with an old fashioned grandfather i was taught quick** ever since i started riding i was thrown on a barely broken horse,bronced around the field and all the while my grandfather saying to the horses owner, dont worry we'll have him sorted. whilst at the same time shouting at me DONT YOU FALL OFF, DONT YOU DARE FALL OFF lol so i learnt pretty quick

ohh god ive waffled on too much.. anyways here is what i got with my 350 pound.(horse on left)

Oh what a lovely post, your horses are absolutely gorgeous. You know I have never really thought, wow, I own my own horse. Maybe because we have always had ponies so it just seems natural. But you are right, we really should appreciate what we have!

Here is mine:

Bodey, a 15’1hh coloured cob. Who is the absolute love of my life! We are quite similar in our personalities I think, so really suit each other. I like to think we have a lot of trust in each other as I backed him (with help) myself, 3 years ago now. We do a bit of everything, from Hunting, to Dressage to Show Jumping.

And Badger the Fjord (who is technically my Mum’s but as me and Gina do everything for him I consider him mine). A 14hh, 7 year old, cheeky monkey. But he is a wonderful ‘plod’ pony for my Mum, and I adore him for that.

My story isn't quite the same as yours, but along similar lines.

I rode at riding schools since I was about 2 (mum started me early), from the age of about 9 I started helping out at weekends at the school I was having lessons. I had a break whilst I was doing my GCSEt really missed the riding so started lesson back up. Once I'd finished GSCEs I looked for something to loan, which I did for a year or so (my timeline could be a little off here).

At this point I realised I had to finally get my own, I couldn't ride other peoples horse anymore! So In my first year at university, after I'd bought all my reading material etc...I used what was left of my student loan to buy this:

Looking back it was probably not the most sensible move...novice, first time owner buys 3yr old Welsh section D

But nearly 4yrs on we are still together & he has a home for live.

JOBO... it makes it feel EVEN better when you own your horse from a young age and break him yourself.. really highlights how much work you put into them.

This is my current (just a) horse, she's 14.3HH and will be 5 in April. She came over from Romania at only weeks old and I have owned her since she was 3 and 1/2.

Previous to her, I had this one, who was 16.2. He was PTS at 9 1/2 years, I owned him for 5 1/2 years.

This boy I had for 15 years and he was PTS at 17 years. He was my once in a lifetime pony. Not much to look at but the heart of a lion and he turned his hoof to anything and everything.

My instructor at the time thought I was insane, but being the head strong person I am, was like ‘well if it all goes wrong I only have myself to blame’. Luckily it didn’t, saying that I have put in a lot of hard work and had many, many, many lessons.
The first day I got on Bodey, after having a whole bottle of rescue remedy!

OP I know just what you mean - and its a wonderful feeling, despite times when you see the attractions of goldfish, there's nothing like looking at your own ned ....

Anyone know how to resize them as my pics are massive
