This is Tia, a 13.3hh 2 year old New Forest Pony mare.
She's my friends pony, but i'll be looking after her from now on as my friend and her mum don't have the time to do anything because they're busy with their other 2 ponies and her brother has lost interest. (tia was 'his' pony)
Here she is with her first saddle on :P
I just put the saddle pad on first, let her sniff it before I put it on her & she was fine. Then let her sniff the saddle & put it on her back, she wasnt bothered. Then I put the girth up & done it up slowly one hole at a time. She was completely fine with it, I don't think she even noticed it on her back lol and just a couple of Tia after I was done brushing/plaiting & messing about with her lol she's soooo cute and laid back for a 2 yr old :)
