Hi all

Postby mattm » Tue May 10, 2016 8:10 pm

Hi all,

I'm new here (UK member) and wanted to introduce my 3 year old filly Lola who is hopefully going to be my dressage horse of the future. I love her to bits and she has the biggest personality you could ask for! She's Hanoverian by grand prix stallion Wanninger and out of a mare called Old Edition by Odysseous. She's standing about 15.3 at the moment, was hoping for 16.2 but who knows, will be happy with 16.1. I still think she has a lot of growing and maturing to do.

Looking forward to learning lots and reading all about dressage and seeing all your wonderful horses!

Thank you. No not riding her yet, I think she looks and seems too immature, so we are just working on ground work for now and getting her used to as much as possible. I will re-assess at the end of the summer and consider backing and then turning away for winter, or may back her next Summer, I am not sure yet! Thanks for the replies.

Yeah, I wound up waiting on my youngster. Even as a 4yr old he grew so awkwardly that I really didn't do much with him under saddle until his growth spurts quit. Then he got injured right where the saddle goes so now he's coming 5 and still a green bean! :lol: Lucky for him, I'm in no hurry, just enjoying the journey.
