New member wanting to say hello :)
#1
Hi there Smile

I found this forum while searching for information on saddles and the excellent saddle templates.

My name is Chris, I'm 31, Live in Northern Ireland and have been riding for 3 1/2 years now. (Started later in life)

I have recently purchased my first horse who is a gorgeous black Quarter Horse called Billy.

Here is me after unloading him off the trailer. To say I was happy is an understatement Smile:

There are some fantastic trails near the stable yard including Tollymore Forest Park where the "Game Of Thrones" series was filmed Smile

I'll be back again with another post about saddle fitting (The one in the picture is far to small for him), but I wanted to say a quick hello.

So, Hello Smile

Thank you both, He's a welcome addition to the family that already has 2 dogs and a cat. Smile

I'll be heading down to the stable yard tomorrow with a bunch of templates in my hands.

I really want to get a saddle that fits him as he already has white patches on either side of the withers.

Welcome! Congrats on your boy, he's very pretty. Black horses are always stunning. [Smile] and don't worry about bugging anyone. We love to give helpful advice...not as much as we all love pics though. We're picture fiends! haha but you'll learn that soon enough. [Wink]
