My new man

Yes, I’ve got a new man.

He’s tall, dark, handsome and Irish.

But before I talk about him, I wanted to say that anyone reading this blog in the last few months might have wondered why it’s called what it is; there hasn’t been much mention of horses at all.

To cut a long story short, Inka and I weren’t a match made in heaven. The horse I was sold wasn’t the horse I bought. The last time I rode her was Boxing Day and…. she’s finally gone. Suffice to say, it’s the best outcome all round.

So on to my new man…

Isn’t he lovely?

He’s a six-year-old Irish sport horse, dark bay with three white socks. He’s a bit smaller than Inka – but much nicer :-)

I’ve got high hopes of this horse. I want to get out to shows like I used to with Dave, I want to do a bit of dressage and maybe cross-country – and I want to enjoy riding like I used to.

I also want to give him a name. He’s called Treble C Boy on his passport but that’s a bit of a mouthful to shout across the field :-)

It needs to be something classy, I reckon… any ideas?!

I’m not going to be riding that much this week though because my friend and I are going away for a couple of nights to Warwick. We’re going to take her two-year-old daughter and spend Wednesday at Warwick Castle, where the attractions include a Merlin tower, a birds of prey display, firing of a trebuchet – and a jousting tournament! Can’t wait and maybe I’ll come back with more ideas of what to do with said new man… :-)

I hope everyone’s had a lovely weekend (extended if you’re in the UK) – and if you’ve got any ideas for good horse names, let me know!

  1. He’s extremely handsome! No name suggestions I’m afraid, I’m not sure you can beat Dave (fabulous horse name!). I hope you two have a lovely life together :-)

    I would call your new man ‘Bond,’ due to the tall, dark and handsomeness. I still cannot get used to Bond being blonde, but that’s due to my imagination’s bias as I read the books before I ever saw one of the films.

    Warwick sounds brilliant – as a Game of Thrones geek I have to say I would enjoy the trebuchet and jousting :D Have a great time!

    • I like the idea of Bond – I did think of James too for a bit but Bond’s definitely got that smooth, sophisticated sound to it!
      And I’m really looking forward to it, should be great, thank you!

  3. Aw, he’s a very lovely man!
