I’ve posted a bit about the little girl who rides my two pet ponies.

I love these recent pictures, I can only afford unbroken or bargain ponies with quirks but she doesn’t complain and just cracks on with the challenge. She has been coming here since she was six and she is now ten and a half.

The darker chestnut was bought to move her on to a bigger pony as I just can’t face the thought of losing her lol

Got to love this level of dedication in a kid, people ask me why I do it for someone else’s child but god this kid is gutsy and such a trier.

I hope these days never end though I think I’m going to end up a horse owner rather than a pony owner in time 😂

Couldn't read and not reply. You can just see the pure happiness in those photos.

Wonderful thread! :D It sounds like everyone gets a lot of pleasure from the arrangement and that's all that matters. :)

This pony looks so much like my boy. I should post him to you so that you could do pairs classes but he'd probably nip the postman and be returned to sender. ;)

Wow what beautiful photos, and what an amazing opportunity for the little gal, she looks so happy! Must be very rewarding to see your ponies active and well loved too :)

I just love your photos. Lucky, lucky girl, lucky ponies and lucky you.
Do any of you remember the Pullein-Thompson (I think) book about the poor family who moved next door to the grey show pony? I loved that book.

This is a quadruple whammy! For the girl and you, and the pony and the mum! Made me a bit tearful. A beautifully produced pony and a cracking little rider.

Lucky her and lucky you. I can imagine you have made a childs dreams come true and I can imagine how rewarding this could be for you. I'm sure she appreciates it - you can see the joy in her face. Beautiful ponies beautiful pictures. Let the good times continue for many many years. I envy you this :) in a nice way.
