Haha the good old memories. I got a pony pretty much when I asked for one. I was a very spoiled kid growing up. Even tho I had ponies (yes I did ask for one, but got 3, go figure-never complained tho!)I had a "barn" full of fancy stick horses
I had a covered "sand arena" and a little grass ring where I had a fully decorated arena of jumps. Of course it was all put up with tree branches and wheelbarrows, buckets, rocks etc.
