“Hi Janine,
We are getting on fantastic thanks, he just loves these pleasure rides. We’ve done six so far and covered over 90 miles…..he can get excited and very strong at times but has never once bucked, bolted or done anything naughty (even when riding with 500 horses at Burghley Horse Trials!!).

I can see why so many people liked him, I have never known a more attention seeking horse!! I can turn him out in new grass with other horses, go out 5 minutes later and call him and watch him come cantering over for some fuss…..I’ve always wanted a horse like that! We’ve totally bonded, he follows me absolutely anywhere and ‘helps’ me to poo-pick every morning. He gets comments wherever we go, complete strangers will just walk up to me to say how stunning he is and to ask questions about him. He has the most amazing stamina and such a big heart, we did a 20 mile challenging ride around Yorkshire and he still came in looking like he was ready to go another 20 miles!

 I have just bought an old horsebox so we can start having lessons at a local yard twice a week through winter and get out to more rides at weekends….watch this space as next year we will be having a go at endurance riding competitively and maybe start attempting dressage!

 I’ve attached a couple of photos, the one from Saturday and one from Burghley Horse Trials.

 He really is the most amazing horse and I can not thank you enough for bringing us together.

 Kind Regards
