    Yeah she's quite tall for age. Not the tallest in her class, but not far off. She certainly doesn't take after me in height, I'm only about 5'3-5'4.

    Oh WOW she is great. My daughter is 5 and has a small white pony also she has only ever been on her with me holding the lead rope, How do you go on form there????
    Hopefully next summer we wil do a bit more, our summer here in Ireland was terrible this year and she got very little riding done.

    I think I am also a nervous mother................................

    I know exactly how you feel. I'm a really nervous mother too. February/March time this year she started having lessons a couple of times a month. She has two different instructors, but they've brought her on loads. I never wanted to let go of the lead rein, so they use to send me away, to view from a distance. I was a bag of nerves the whole time, felt quite sick too.
    Atleast for the first few months, she was always on the lunge. And then progressed to riding on her own. I only allow her to ride on her own in the school though. If she's hacking, its the lead rein.
    She's fallen off more times than I can remember, but she was over confident at the start, and everyone said she needed to fall off, I didn't like that at all. And believe me, the first one was scary. She'd started jumping, only a foot or so, still on the lead rein, but willow put in a big leap and of course Ellie was a frog leaping in the air, and came down with a bump. I can laugh about it now, couldn't back then.
    Our summer here was terrible also. Way too much rain.
