My horses Ben and Candy

Hello, I am 13 years old and I have to amazing horses called Ben and Candie!! Let me tell you a bit about them!!!!

Ben is a beautiful bay gelding. He is a pure Thoroughbred and is an ex-racehorse. He is 16.hh and loves to gallop (still!!). Unfortunately, he comes from a bad background, his owners used to beat him when he didn't win races. We bought ben for £50 and we definitely think he is worth more!! We have been to lots of show jumping competitions and we always get placed at least 3rd and we have in total 30 rosettes!!!!

Candie is my angel. She is a 15.2hh very bright bay mare and is a little angel! She loves to make you happy and will do absolutely anything for you. We do lots of show jumping and jump cross (jump cross is just little cross country except with knockable jumps!).We have won lots of rosettes and I have two trophies. I love Candie and I am just about to go affiliated with her.

The best thing about my horses is that they trust me with their lives. When they lie down, I can lie down next to them.

I hope that you don't think I am bragging or anything, I you think I am I am really sorry! I love my horses soooo much I just can't help it!!

They sound like great horses!
I have a 20 year old Thoroughbred dark bay gelding ex-racehorse, that is the sweetest boy!
He is always willing to please.
And I have a light bay Morgan gelding that is still in training.
God has blessed us with them, and I am thankful!

I know what it's like having horses who you trust and who trust you. I've got a bird who's name is Candy! I wonder what your horse looks like
