Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

I wish, apparently I just "carry it well".

Since I buggered my knee twice over two succesive years I've managed to put on two stone :(

Slightly confused, what was the pic taken for? So that the ladies can pick which one looks nicest, or...? :?

Then we would loose as ours are a mixture of feux and sable. But I dare say you would look good in one :wink:

NAhh, just a group shot taken after the skill at arms competition where we soundly defeated the hapless minions of the deranged Corsican tyrant.

Woot...!

The stresses of this weekends campaign event have paid off and I lost enough weight to be safely under 16 stone and almost a 34" waist again - of course some of the weight loss was from gushing blood (got a nasty kick in the second charge, and the left shin of my overalls is a kind of russet colour now)

Nice kit, I could do that you know, standing still horse not moving. Right up my street. It's when they start to move that it goes all wrong.

Shame, I was going to ask for the one on the grey! :roll:

Only for the horse, though xD

Sorry, I thought you meant the bloke on him..!

The Grey (Silver) is a rescue horse. He's quite old, and he's not perfect (who is), but he's honest and gives you his best. Quite a safe horse actually (although he can stumble quite a lot on very uneven ground)

Chris (the guy riding the grey), he's getting married in December .

It made me laugh when I thought about putting it that way earlier, but now I'm confused as well.

I just didn't like that shot (being vain and all that)

None of mine were there - they are all still being schooled, but I plan to have Quaker at the SK bash at Loseley next year.

Here's a couple of our old ones.

Me on my old mare TJ (15h3" Shire x ID x TB) (now retired and looking after two ladies with confidence issues who she allowes to go on hacks with her)

And Ed with Pru, a 15h1 Dales Pony - Ed's now doing PSG and has his own yard (lucky chap that he is) Julie bought her by accident when looking for a Highland :roll:

I was just trying to prove my head isn't square, and the only other online picture I could find was this one :(
