I've been around horses for most of my 68 years but had to give up riding/owning a few years ago on my retirement for health and wealth reasons! My horses were usually TB crosses around 16hh and I enjoyed hacking, hunting, cross country stuff like hunter trials and team chasing. I also did some long distance but nothing more than about 25 miles. My horse of a lifetime was Honeydew, a palomino anglo arab and we competed and did cross country rides etc until he was 27. He had a few years retirement and died at 29. He was a rig so careful management was required but he was a star. We had years of fun together.
Do you have any pets?
2 Jack Russell terriers and they are both gorgeous friendly little chaps.
