15th May, 2007 Wild...child

Another curious day. If you received a telephone call from a woman asking whether it was a good idea to get a 10 year old wild New Forest pony for her child to ride you might be tempted to say no. Today I went to see aforesaid pony and it was a dream. With the usual reservations about inexperienced riders being put with inexperienced ponies, I could see no reason why this pony wouldn't turn out as well if not better than a domesticated one. She was quiet, responsive, polite and happy to be handled.
