Just thought i would introduce mysel and my horses, i know some of you so wont bore you too much!
I live in 82, been here 41/2years, i owned my first pony when i was 10 years old, Red Pepper (Pepi) he taught me everything, he was a rig, 12.2hh and a brilliant jumper i took him up to JA level (as it was called in those days), my next was Taffy a 14.2hh fabulous pony, he'd jump anything, i loved taking him hunting, I went on to do my BHSAI and work on various yards for 3 years then i got massied had 3 kids and had a long break from horses,
Eventually got back into riding, I loved endurance and Barajneh (Barry) my Arab and i reached 40mile distances when he started having leg problems so retired him when he was 15yo he's now 26 yo, had a lovely CBXTB (Peppercorn) who was a complete nutter, she'd competed in Galloway racing as a youngster, she'd had 8 owners in 10years, it took me three years to get her to walk on grass, i eventually put her in foal to a super Connemara and the result was Poppy, i broke her myself and competed in Dressage and did loads of fun rides etc, i brought Barry, Peppercorn and Poppy with me to France, after two years Peppercorn who was 29 yo had secere problems with her circulation and immune system and i decided to have her PTS but a few weeks later Poppy got laminitis in her back feet, its a mystery why she had it but we think it was stress of losing her mum (they'd beeen together for 15 years), things went from bad to worse and i made the decision to put her to sleep 10 weeks after i lost her mum. I was left with Barry who i could no longer ride, so had tosearch for anoher horse here, went to see 30 or so but they all seemed to have a problem or a vice,by the October i told my OH i'd go and see one more and if i didnt like her i wouldnt look at anymore , the day i met Peppermints Baby(Mimi) 2 years ago i knew she was the one for me,she's a reg American Quarter horse and is one of the most amazing horses i've been lucky enough to meet and i love her to bits!
I love exploring the countryside on my own with her, i but would love to do TREC and LABEL LOISIR, also love to have some western lessons!
