**Ellie and Willow**

Hi everyone,

Thought it was time I posted some more pics of Ellie and Willow. They've come on so much this year, my babies.
These were taken middle of October, so she's improved since then too. Ellie had just stopped relying on the strap at the front of her saddle, so her hands aren't in the best position, but she's learning to balance on her own. The other issue is feet too far in the stirrups, but all this will come with time. For those of you who dont know, Ellie is 4 years old, 5 in January and Willow is 9yrs old, 11.2hh. We've had Willow for about a year and a half.

Anyways, I'd like to know what you all think.

Oh my, how cute is that? :) She looks pretty good to me for a 4 almost 5 year old. I love her little blue saddle pad too. She is going to be a great rider by the time she is 6.

Thanks everyone. She does make me proud.

She's fallen off more times than I can remember, but it doesn't put her off. She just gets straight back on.

She is a fabulous little rider already.

Do you find the pony easier for her to manage than a full sized horse ?? Many ponies I have seen tend to be very stubborn with children...but then again they are just a more manageable seeming size for little ones.

I know what you mean. I know ponies that are like that. Thankfully Willow is an angel. He's a genuine kind little guy and he really looks after her. Dont get me wrong he can have his odd cheeky moment, but even those aren't bad. :)

She's just great for 4 (ok even 5). And doesn't look like that age - I'd guess 6-7 if not told.
