<strong>[QUOTE]Wow okay toronto,
We have to horses. Well actually one E-pony and one horse (1.78 Mtr between the shoulders)
It's KWPN, Not a stallion anymore wink .
We have a truck to transport the two.
Our heart is at the combination of dressage, jump and cross country. Those three combined in one competition.
The pony just turned 29 (no guys it's not me!!!
) and he just competed in the Z-class (single highest level) dressage and was second. 29 years! Most horses don't get halve that age!
The pony is Dutch Champion and was selected for the Dutch champions team for the Olympics. The other horse is a Concorde. Name is Lockheed, 10 years and also Z in dressage, but we are competing him in the combination as well. Both are warm bloods. The horse is a KWPN which is a kind of a breed here in Holland.
I just started riding since I met my G/F and since we got the horse (coz I am too big for the pony, duh...
) about 6 months nowand , I am about to compete the first combination in May this year. I jump, do dressage and next the cross country.
But my other hobby has horsepower too. Motorcycles. But that's on the side.

Wow. I'm really impressed. That's some serious horseflesh. Congratulations. You pony sounds like a wonderhorse, though I'm not familiar with the term 'e-pony.' Was your girlfriend named to the team as well?
As for your horse, do you mean that Concorde is his sire? If so, those are some impressive bloodlines, and a beautiful horse. (I know we're not supposed to post pictures here, but there's a great shot of Concorde with a blue cloverleaf on a red background, so he's almost a part of the AO family).
Good luck with your lessons. We'll be waiting to see shots of you from your first first three-day-event. And happy birthday.
