View Full Version : golden oldies

Hi everyone, my 15 hands horse (black and white) and I are getting on, he's shrinking at almost 18 yrs, welshxarabxtb. I would love to show him ridden this year as we have both had 2yrs off after a nasty accident, he lost his confidence and I broke my back. He is a lightweight (I think) with a little bit of feather, fine head and very cheeky! Loves the girls, can be very sharp at times with mares around. I have bought a brown tweed jacket and black Leather boots, have a black saddle and bridle and navy hat. What classes apart from coloured could we do, he jumps okay although hes not fussed! has dressage paces and is very pretty, not patches. Hope someone can help us oldies! Many thanks, have enjoyed reading all the stuff on the great site. Thanks:)

The obvious one is veterans! If he jumps there's working hunters and/or riding club horse, and equitation is another one you could do.
Do you have a photo of him? We'd need to see one to see what other classes you could do.

The easiest way is to open an account on www.photobucket.com where you can upload your photos from the computer. Once uploaded there will be 3 lines of text below each photo, pick the bottom line and copy and paste it into your message here.

if you are able to get some pics up it'd be easier to tell which classes, so shall reply proper when you post them :)
