I am new to QS.. Although we actually live very close to Jimboomba HQ. on Saturday I will be walking my new 16 month old Percheron Tb cross to his first foundation training camp. I have done some Natural hormanship with my last horse but wanted something a bit more with Chaos. Although I will not be riding him for a long time we have plans to do Agility with him in hand. He is a very smart and quiet boy with a few quirks.
I am relatively new back to horses. We got our daughter, who is 15, a horse when we moved out from Perth late 2010. That did not last very long..... So I started riding again after not being on a horse for 14 years. Abbey was lovely and we decided to get another horse for hubby to ride and daughter wanted another shot. Well........ After only a short time together they formed such a huge bond I found it impossible to take them out alone. With other commitments etc I found it very hard to deal with 2 horses. So we advertise both of them and had thoughts of only selling one. A family from Samford came to look at them and wanted both. As they had such a huge bond I decided to let them both go..... Wish I hadn't as I missed Abbey so much. I was a fool to think I would be ok without her. I was a mess for a few weeks. So I took the plunge and thought I would get a young hors so I knew what his history was. I am in no hurry to ride yet and really look forward to getting to know him. I have only had him for a couple of weeks.
What I want to know has anyone else got. Very young horse that thinks it is ok to chase you around the paddock. I think he just wants to play like he would with another horse. But it is a little unnerving having him gallop up behind me. He is a pretty big boy already.
