Pictures of the Big Guy!!!

Finally! Riding pictures of Rugby and me! These were taken when I rode him after the hoof trimming last Sunday and it's the first time I've seen how we look together under saddle. I think we make a good team but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves :)






What a good boy! He looks like he's sleeping in the sun after our ride!

Awww!!! You guys look so cute together! He really must be huge because I know you said you were close to 6 foot and you two look perfect together! I love it.

Wow! When I looked at the pics, I thought you would have to have been short. But you are the same height as me... that is ONE BIG HORSE!!

You both look great & look great together!

Thanks to everyone who commented on your kind compliments. Since my jacket also got a response, here's the info on it. It's from Rambo Horseware's 2009 fall line. You can buy them right now on most equestrian sites. Mine came from equestriancollections.com . It's the goldenrod stripe, newmarket fleece jacket. There's still time to add it to your holiday wiishlists!
