    I help out with the local RDA on a Saturday morning, and can usually be found bothering Ace, a 16hh Shire-X-TB.

    Anyway, here are some pics of the monsters, if anyone's interested....

    The Boys

    Katie-Morag, a Highland Pony

    Misty - another Highland whose main goal in life is to rob me of mints!

    Looking thoroughly unimpressed with her head gear!

    Annie - 15hh Dales

    aawww they're all soo lovely espec Ace, he's gorgeous!:)

    are rda horses allowed to be bolshy in the slightest? my friend has an x rda horse and he's very bolshy, we couldn't understand why if he was rda. Not sure which rda centre he came from but his name is Garfield:)

    Shian - I guess it depends on their personality. Misty is so well behaved! Ace has certainly had his moments but, more recently at least, he's become so much more.... relaxed about me, and I can't figure out why! The first picture I posted - I couldn't have taken that a few months ago, as he wouldn't have bothered with me, but now he suddenly has much more interest!

    He did once throw me off last year, and I didn't ride him for a loooong time, but I did get on him for a bit last weekend.

    Scribbler - I help out at Thornton Rose RDA. www.thorntonroserda.com

    Soot Paranoid!

    Found it.
    Must have been in 2003 or early 2004, methinks! Good to hear he's doing well!

    Doubt it!
    I was there for a grand total of 5 hours - charity competition of some sort. I turned up, got allocated a horse, did a dressage test, rode a handy horse circuit, had some tea while watching the others, collected my rosette and went home again *lol*.

    Ah, yes, well, maybe not then! :p

    But yes, he's still kicking about, still a big menace (although you probably wouldn't have experienced that!).

    I actually would really like to do more with Ace - get him used to me, and get the opportunity to ride him more often (and bring my confidence with him up a bit).
