I have lots, but here is a recent one. Me and Diva getting the Reserve Champion for the Intro dressage at Foxes. She couldn’t go any further because of her breathing and inability to sustain canter, but this was so special.
I miss her so, so much but every picture of her makes me smile. This one in particular

Love this thread! And I love your happy photo, alexomahony.

First photo is a sweet moment with my current mare from a few years ago and second photo is my mare and my gelding out on a hack overlooking Coniston fells and lake which was a fabulous day as my friend was riding too.

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's photos!

My happiest horsey pic would probably be this one. It's on a RS school horse but it was a long time ago so I hope it's okay to post. I know in the grand scheme of things that's a baby jump but it's the biggest I've ever jumped and had just fallen off on the previous attempt. I love it because I think it's these little moments that made it worth it to keep trying even though I'm wasn't a confident rider. I also really bloody loved this horse, and so did my late father who said he was 'a proper horse, not a carthorse!' and was there for every single lesson (poor dad!).

Bridgnorf, innit!
I was terrified of jumping until - at the age of 54 - I saw a confidence therapist and had some brain retraining. Much to my shock and wonderment it bloomin'-well worked and my young mare and I learned to jump together. Last year we managed 80cm which ordinarily is WAY out of my comfort zone. I'm very fortunate because she loves jumping so I just point her and cling on!! lol

This was today whilst riding my Connie Sky - he was fab and so forward and lovely but not spooky and stupid. Had a great ride :D Nothing About my position on this photo is perfect but it doesn’t matter because we are free and happy. Share your silly happy photos :)

Look at his cocky little face 😁 Hi! It's me!

Six year old daughter with her first pony on loan. He was just the best, had taught loads of kids the ropes, was kind and would jump anything as long as she kicked. Always expected a polo at the end of a session and one one occasion took her to a table where they were selling refreshments (including polos). He gave her so much confidence. File0014 (2).jpg

There are many reasons why this pony made me happy! This day in particular was in April 2017. His first ever show as an adult. He did the mixed M&M small breeds under a hugely well respected judge in a class of 15 ponies. Not only did he win he went M&M Champion too. After handing out the championship rosettes I apologised to the for the fact that I had to leave the show and not come forward for any more championships - I had a party to get to! Arthur had won the National the day before and I think the majority of people at the show had bet on him! So we dashed home, flung him in the field and I went to work to enjoy the carnage that was over 2000 people descending on the yard all to see Arthur! I will try to find a pic of that too.



A once in a lifetime thing to be involved with! We won the National!!!



It's a shame we couldn't try to reclaim the crown in 2020.

Is that Janice at Hulberts Green in Brinkworth? I'm sure I recognise it! I rode there for a while when I was about 16-17 I think (so about erm 2004ish?). My dad also used to take me to all my riding lessons until I learnt to drive!
