October, 2004

Another New Forest pony comes in for starting. He is a mature looking pony and a little aloof (Rowan). I go and visit Vigo who is now two and has elegant manners. Later I bought a trailer which will need a lot of work to bring it up to standard but it will all be done to my specifications - a grippy floor and warm sides.

I run my first course with Kayti Harvey and Sarah Burchett - long-reining for beginners. My own horse turns out to be an expert.

To end the month and to celebrate being made a Recommended Associate, I hold a hobby horse party where there are over 40 entries for the competitions and rosettes to fourth place. My genuine British Horse Society judges were hysterical and the competition got hotter as the alcohol got lower.
