Back to the Troop and riding
Well Now i am going back to my Regiment (King's Troop RHA) and as i been off from horses for 2 years but last few months been on and off i be with horses full time now. I be working in the Officer Mess (Where the Officer eat and sleep) but i be able to ride the Officer Horses than the Troop horses. So now i am another step to getting fitter and get my self more balanced and centre on the saddle. As i am weak on one side of my body.

So if i can get my own internet access u be seen more pics of the troop doing there daily work and Video clips too. Going back to work Monday morning and should be no later than 05:45 am which going to be hard!! Reason is i perfer the Officer horses because they are calmer and has more ummm dressage in them shall i say. The troop horses are hyper but not as bad as the race horses but there more like working horses as they pull a ton and half limber and gun around. Oh and its safer as well as i am weak on side and not centred on saddle. They tend to buck alot and run off with u etc but when i get the video cam out u guys will see what i mean.

Well thats why i hardly dont post here but now life coming back to normal so woot and some thing to focous on now. Oh and i hope i manage to find a good trainer there but mm going to be some looking. When i go back as well i be looking at a local Stables to do NVQ and BHS courses as well than going though the army as they take so dam long. Then i hope in 2-3 years with local courses i be a Trainer :P

Pete

Oh and for this group u see alot of MEN!! riding and yes they all straight :P

Straight men in the UK do dressage too you know, they are not all gay :-D
I dont have many photos of my partner, Asher, riding, but this was him riding a horse called Dilly who belongs to a woman called Jane Edwards who is a former British Team member I who lives right by our horse fields.

Here are 2 photos, they are not very exciting, but they are at least of Asher in tight trousers! Look at those looooong skinny legs, Dilly is somewhere around 16hh and is, apparently, an Irish thoroughbred.

Asher - straight man riding!Collapse )

No, just because he does dressage it doesnt mean he is gay...
2 weeks ago I dropped our (bred for dressage, bred for my partner) foal off at a yard for the winter. He'll spend the winter in a big barn with all their foals playing inside and keeping dry and not getting miserable because of the weather and not being bored as I only have one foal this year.

When I dropped Minion (colt) off I watched one of the staff there working some horses and we were talking. She asked about Asher (my partner), whether or not he rides. The conversation went a like this...

Rachel: what does Asher do in riding? Does he do eventing or show jumping?

me: He does dressage. He really likes it and is very good at it.

*Pause, clearly for thought*

Rachel: Its very unusual for a man, who starts riding so later in life as Asher did, to like dressage.

me: Trust me, hes not gay if thats what you were thinking...

Rachel: No no! Not at all what I meant, I just meant that it is rather unusual for a man who starts riding at the age of 29 to like dressage...

me: No, really, I know exactly what you are thinking and what is at the back of your mind but believe me, I have first hand experiance and can tell you for sure that he really, truly is NOT gay.

------

*laughs*

I do find it funny when people think that. They may not say it but I know what they are thinking. Yes, the vast majority of dressage riders in the UK who are male are gay, but Asher just happens to be straight!

The English Horsie-straight-man
Hello! I'm C, I live south of London, England and have 4 horses at the moment, well, 2 ponies (a Welsh A and an Appaloosa X Cob), 1 horse (TB X Welsh D) and a 3 month old (Warmblood) colt who should make about 16.2hh.

I am blessed with good looking straight men around me when I go horse riding. My partner, I clearly find attractive, is maluse (Asher) who got into horse riding because of me and the whole "love me, love my horse" attitude when I booked him in for 2 lessons and told him if he doesnt like it after the second lesson I will never mention it again. Of course, he was hooked, and now training at medium level dressage. He HATES this photo, but I think he looks rather cute. It is a loooong storty as to why he has chopsticks behind his ears, so please ignore them. I dont really have any good photos of him riding as he doesnt like his photo taken and i'm always playing groom to his horses so dont get chance to take photos!
photo of AsherCollapse )

and then there is his best mate who started riding a couple of years ago because I told him he should and he couldn't think of any reason as to why he shouldnt, so he did! emzed (Matt) came over a couple of weeks ago and I managed to get a rather good photo of him playing with my foal!
Matt with minionCollapse )

Yes, both men have long hair, I have a thing for men with long hair :-) Both are around 6ft tall, slim and I think quite attractive! I cant wait for the day when both of them play groom to me at a competition, I'd be the envy of the horsie girls :-)
It would also make a very nice change from me playing groom to them :-(

Introduction
Hello there as i been approved i thinght i say hi to u all.

My name is Peter and i am 25 live in the UK. I been riding horses for 11 years and i love show jumping and Cross country and i hope in the near futre to start dressage and go Eventing. I am also in the British army in a Regiment called the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery which is also a mounted regiment and i been in there for 5 years now. But last yeari have broken my leg at a 2 day event at the cross country course. I was only watching and a loose horse ran into the rope fencing and the wooden stake fliped out and broken my right leg. I been off for a year as i was in a cast for a year until April this and got it pinned and now i am starting to get back to riding thank god. I do not have any horses of my own as when i am at work i have not much time for my own as i have the army horses to look after and stuff.  My favorite breed are Irish draft and Irish draft crossed with Thoroughbred as they are awesome for Show jumping and Eventing. Well i belive a few of u guys know me already.
 I am planning to come to the States in 4 years time i hope to start a new career and teach in Eventing in the East Coast somewhere. I been to the states a few times and i love visting and i have been to CA, FL and PA and end of year i hope MA, CT and new jersey my next stop.


Here some pic me ridingCollapse )

I have started thunderhooves, a community dedicated to the noble and powerful feathered warhorses, particularly under saddle. Whether you are an owner or admirer or just curious, whatever your experience or knowledge level, please feel free to join.

Friesians, Friesians crosses, and also the Shires, Clydesdales, Percherons and other draft breeds ... their majesty is unmistakeable, and whether you own, ride, or just dream about being astride one or more of these magnificent creatures.

I have had much success working with other people's horses, but more than my share of disappointments with my own choices, though it has been mainly due to shady humans involved and not the horses. However fate has always been good to me when I listen to what I really want, and I do think fate is telling me to try another path, and so I am stepping back and saving while I look for a Friesian, or if that is not economically possible, a Friesian Percheron cross, the best of which resemble my preference anyway, the old style draftier Friesian which is slowly being phased out for the sport horse type, just as beautiful though a much more refined animal.

I have been very impressed with the Friesian people I've met thus far, very into their horses and into costuming, performance, doing such interesting things with their horses.

In my icon is one horse I am curious about, he is a young baroque Friesian in Holland with the basics under saddle, and I am considering a trip out there or to send a scout to meet him if he is still available when I can afford him. Even if not, he's a good template from which to look. There is a woman who has Percheron Friesians in CA, and that visit will be very doable, and perhaps soon.

I have a definitely type in mind, heavy huilt and baroque with a thick stallion neck, lots of feather and hair, and expressive and animated gaits. A sportier build is fine too, as long as the whole build is harmonious. I want a horse who takes my breath away just standing, in motion, underneath me.

My horse is here, and I couldn't be happier with her. A friend and I drove 17 straight hours to Rochester NY to pick her up, she was coming from Tennessee, and was staying overnight in Rochester. She was so good in the trailer, wasn't bothered, just munched hay and looked out the window occasionally. She has adjusted beautifully, and everyone is falling in love with her.

She is 17 hh, 8 years old, very interesting draft cross - 1/2 Shire 1/4 Clydesdale, 1/4 Hackney - extremely athletic, both drafty and refined in just the right combination. She fits my tack perfectly, including the saddle I bought for Symphony last year and my Kieffer a/p, and she has three bridles with 6" bits, a black with brass fittings and browband bridle and a black with silver ornamental bridle, in her two colour motifs, along with her old schooling / Parelli bridle from Tennessee.

She has great barn and ground manners, trail rides, jumps, great dressage prospect, has fox hunted, drives too ... though she has not been used much in the past year - her owner was injured on a hunt with ber high strung TB and the husband loves her but hasn't the interest in really riding her. I still can't get over how friendly and curious she is, she loves to sniff and snuffle EVERYTHING. She has a mind of her own, and will test, but once she sees I mean it, she comes right into line, my kind of horse.

She is still shedding her slightly faded winter coat, so she looks a deep burnished brown in her midsection and along her back, which is as beautiful as her natural black coat. She shines up easily, and I can't wait to see what she looks like with muscle and long grooming sessions. Grooming her is a pleasure, she closes her eyes and loves it.

Here she is:

yay for male trainers.
In response to the earlier post from the moderator, here are a couple pictures of my attractive trainer who I stopped riding with about a month or two ago. Too bad he turned out to be a pedophile- he's awfully good looking. ;)

Just a reminder from your friendly neighbourhood moderator....
I haven't been the most attentive of moderators. Is there anything anyone has any suggestions or complaints about?

Also, just a reminder directed at almost everyone who's been posting, :P thanks for taking an interest in the community, BUT

The purpose of this community is to celebrate men who ride english and their inherent sex appeal.

My hope was that people would post casual pix of celebs on english horses they'd collected or pics of guy friends, male riding instructors/trainers etc. OR that any men who ride english would join and share THEIR photos, etc.

I'll try to stop slacking in my mod duties and get some photos up if I can find some!

Also if anyone has the time to take a more active role as a mod or co-mod let me know! I think this community could be great if it had someone with a little more time helping out.
