    This are the pictures I got sent by Galaxy's owner. Apparently they are quite old, from when he was about 8, he is now 10.

    I'm not quite sure how high that jump is, but I know he can jump 4ft+! He is a very pretty boy, and gets quite dark in the winter. I like dark horses.





    I don't think you can really see the Hanoverian in him, but he has a very dignified sports horse look about him.

    One day, I will get a pure Hanoverian, with that gorgeous Havoverian stance.

    SI_Tragedy,

    Beautiful Horse!!

    I've ridden off & on thoughout childhood & occassionaly as an adult...Now I volunteer with a group that conducts hippotherapy! Some of the kids are very stunted developmentally & sometimes seem terrified, but to see the excitement in their eyes makes it all worth the effort that I put into it.

    I have a purebred Crabbet Arab, bought her at 4 days, took her home at 6 months, backed her myself and she's now 10. The idea was for me to do endurance, and though sadly she's up for it, I didnt take into account that I wasnt...She gets ridden regularly, but its not the same somehow... I also have a 29 year old rescue Arab/new forest, and Rain and Reiyuu keep their two horses on my land too... So I have 4 in all..I hate winter when they all come in

    yeah mucking out is a nightmare in the winter...my last 2 stayed indoors all year round but winter still seemed worse!
    At the yard i worked at at one point we had 22 stabled horses and had me and one other girl to do the stable work-it was exhausting! I never even got paid to do it!!! The things we do when we are 12 eh?!

    Ok here are some photos! (im sure i will have posted them on here before but never mind!)


    Thats my 3rd horse Justice, 16.3 ThoroughbredxID. I look tiny on her but i was only 13 when i first got her! She was a proper ginger beast!


    Thats Philly, 16.2 Hanoverian, acing a showjumping competition...the fences were too small for her!


    And this is Raf, 17hh Throughbred x at his first x-country that i took him to. He was a star and jumped everything first time!

    You're right, Philly does have that Hanoverian look.
    But I'm in love with Raf!
    I love greys, but have never had the pleasure to own one!
    He is gorgeous.
    What was he crossed with? Looks a bit warmblood-ish to me.
