    I've got to admit horses do look incredible. Still very weary of them even though I grew up around them.
    Have any of you horse owners been kicked by one? A lady my Gran rents her field to got kicked and shattered about 6 ribs -_-

    Been kicked a few times, bitten, landed on, run over, dragged and thrown lol i used to take in troubled and problem horses and retrain them (80% of the time its the person not the horse that had the problem)

    Yep, hurts like a bast**d, been kicked in the chest (Arabian) and in the Stomach (Clydie x QH)

    I have a 22yr old Standardbred Gelding - Now retired. He is chestnut. Nothing special but was great to ride back in the day. Owned him for 8 years now.

    First pic was taken a year ago, second pic was taken 3 weeks ago (He has his own mud patch that he lays in, even though he has a perfectly good open stable) and the last pic was taken when he was 16yrs, in his younger days. He loved to go, hence the tightness on the reigns, plus he was only my pleasure horse, I never rode properly on him ;)

    Lovely horses everyone.

    I had horses for 20 years, but haven't had any for about 12 years now, and I do miss them. Mine were for mainly pleasure riding, I dabbled in a couple of prelim ressage tests when younger, and went to a show once when I had an ASH, just for the led class, but pleasure riding was the best.
    If I win lotto, I'll buy on a few acres and have some retirees to look after.

    2 horses atm, getting another one when I finally get out of uni, one that isn't a pony and will be good for getting into more than just trail riding :)

    Smokey, 25 year old stock horse x, 14.2hh flea-bitten grey gelding retired, well most of the time anyway, Sometimes jump on for a plod around. No accelerator, but has amazing breaks, lol. Taught me how to roll as he was rather good at bucking. Love this old guy to pieces :)

    This is Bailey, slightly neurotic pally mare, approx 15 years old. Stock horse x about 14.2hh. Took 8 months to get her over her head shy issues, still wont let most men touch her face. She is broken to ride, but has issues with the bridle still. Total sweetheart if you can get her to trust you. I like her, with all her quirks :)

    I can kind of play! I had a horse a few months ago but gave him to a friend
    photo.jpg
    My friend is an equine photographer and wanted to take some pictures for her uni portfolio
    ETA: he's a 16 year old thoroughbred gelding called Casper

    He's currently for sale actually as my friend takes in, educates and sells horses as her job
