    gerry, you should totally return to it, as I am. I'm going to book a lesson as soon as I get paid, and see how much I remember. Hopefully Tegoz_Marianos is right and I'll get back into the swing of it

    Heeeey, just thought I'd update you!

    I got back into riding as I said I would, and am currently sharing a lovely 16.3hh Irish Draught called Frenchie.

    Here we are:



    Tegoz, you were right - just like riding a bike. It's like I never stopped!

    Yayyyy! That's ace, well done

    You'll find things like position etc a bit wonky at first but it all comes back much quicker than first time round And lovely horse too, Irish Draughts are sweet

    Update on the livery yard front: WE'RE MOVING ON THE 7TH FEB!!! WWOOOOOOO!

    my current yard owner is a bit pants: won't allow us to use a starvation paddock even in the heght of spring/summer when the grass is far too rich and our horses arre getting fat; is refusing to even section off the field into smaller bits to reduce grass intake; and has been promising us an outdoor school for 5 years which is currently half full of sand and has been for over a year.

    So decided enough is enough and I'm moving from my current DIY, no facilities, nowhere to ride yard to this place

    I might wet myself I', so excited! And he's getting a gorgeous stable too *squee* So he can be tucked in all cosy at night ^_^

    That yard looks great, I must admit I'm a bit jealous!

    Moved Frenchie to a new yard today too, it's private (only 3 stables and we have taken them all), lots of turnout, and peace and quiet!
    No menage but loads of hacking!

    It's pretty awesome, the beach would be good enough but XC course, 2 schools and a stable...^__^

    We fitted his rubber mats yesterday so his new home is all ready for him to move in...now i just need to try getting him in the horsebox, never fun!

    Yay I'm so glad you got back into horses, it's ace how when you've had a long break from them you feel like a little kid and get all excited when you know you're going to ride I still get that if I haven't ridden in a few days.

    Okaaaay so you know I got back into riding last November and was sharing a horse for a few months? Well that all went wrong, had issues with the owner. Sooooo I saved some cash up and bought this fine gentleman...






    His name is Charlie, he's a 17.1hh Thoroughbred x Irish Sport Horse, 15 years old, and wonderfully gentle giant. He's an ex-showjumper and was also going to be a police horse but didn't make the cut.
    I love him to bits! <3

    I had 1000 set aside I knew the guy selling him, he's terminally ill so can no longer keep Charlie, he asked for 1000 including everything!

    Well looks like you got a very good deal! Shame about his old owner but it's probably nice for him to know he's going to someone who'll look after him
