Aww thanks you guys! We all really enjoyed ourselves, Son is ever so pleased and is now planning his next show :) We didn't expect any Rosettes, maybe a special as Son is still very much a beginner and we are still figuring Snowys little quirks out (.it turns out he loves ice cream cones! He stole my Husbands! ) It was so funny when he got his first, his face was amazing and everyone watching clapped as the judge handed over his rosette ( I admit I welled up at this point and gave Son a big cuddle to hide the fact I was on the brink of tears, it was a little embarrassing!)
As for him being so clean well I used a touch of my fabulous toner shampoo ( it's basically purple, turns your hands purple) in with my Diamond white shampoo, worked a treat :)

Now to frame a few photos.........

Fabulous, well done to you all. I know how hard it is organising small child and pony for shows. I have to admit to welling up too when my son does well, they're proud mummy moments. Brilliant moment for treasuring, love your son's face when getting the red rosette. Hope it's the first of many for them.

Totally gorgeous. Love the picture of your son leading the adorable Snowy on his own. He has the biggest smile ever when he was called in first.
What a team, they are. Snowy is quite scrumptious too.

Awww, you all look fantastic. Well done, and such a good haul of rosettes for a first time out as well - even better. You must be so proud, and rightly so.

What a funny little pair of scamps they are! But the thing I like the best is that your little boy is having so much fun with his "ordinary" pony. Show rings are so full of surly children on blood ponies neither of which is enjoying themselves. This little pony will teach your son so much, not least that his own hard work will reap the rewards in the end, rather than having a rich parent buy their way to first place and the kid is just an accessory.

its exactly the sort of pony that should be in first ridden-not one of those fancy ponies who has to be lunged and/or ridden by an adult first. Great to see a Shetland as a proper kids pony.

Only just seen this post. What an utterly adorable pair, the sheer joy on your son's face on being given his red rosette is just priceless :)

Hehe, Ill have to add these pics I took the day before at home, we were going to do the lead rein working hunter class ( Little cross poles) so we were having a practice but son was too scared to go out of walk so I took some pics of him walking over the jump



He did the 2 jumps a few times in walk and trotted inbetween but decided he wasn't ready to jump, so he did this instead



He thought this was brilliant and that's why we did the inhand class instead :) seemed like a good choice too!!!
