Hopefully this has worked and shows my old cob Thomas - still going strong at 30 and my arab Dougie who sadly had to be put down.

Hope it works! Love Lizzie

OK I have cheated twice for this thread
Firstly I took a photo of a photo thats 28 years old (cant get the scanner to work!)
Secondly he wasnt strickly mine but I rode him every week for years.

David (yes strange name for a horse) was the most gentle, steady & forgiving horse I had ever ridden. The reason he was so special was because he gave me the confidence to move on from the "pony trek" to real riding. Knowing how to feel and be at one with a horse rather than just riding on a horse.
I miss that person I was on him........... I hope one day to get that majic back in my life

Amos wasn't old in this picture, had just turned three.  And this was his under saddle debut, in down town Louisville at the Derby Parade. (I must have been insane!)  
He was our first foal, I kept him for his entire life.  We had a lot of fun together.  We did shows and parades and demos.  I drove him, rode him English and Western, he could take a jump with style.  I miss him still, but was very lucky to have him.

I make no appologies for having put this photo on the forum before. This is our first horse Misty and our favourite daughter Doodle





In at the deep end, we bought Misty on the strength of me having attended a three day shire horse management course. Doodle is our only daughter by the way. This picture was taken by the local paper twenty years ago.
