Where it all began - my beloved chestnut Shetland pony!

A borrowed “catch ride” ☺ from my uncle who started my riding career. I am still convinced that everyone who is able to get a Shetland pony from point A to point B on the desired line and speed will become an Olympic Champion!

If you now want to know which is the best horse I have ever ridden – I cannot give you an answer! They are and have been such different personalities, individual characters and each of them is and has been wonderful in their own way. The one thing I can say the more riding I do the more I appreciate my early horses - my knowledge 40 years ago was so limited and the horses were fantastic to support the “gaps”.
