I have a meeting today, about getting a pony..
Ok. Well on my nana and grampa's farm (its and olive oil business, they are soon opening a cafe) I have begged for a horse or pony. Anyway, now that I am older, they have decided if I can make the money and figure it all out, sure!
Anyway, I have an Aunty. Like, all my mums side of the family are into horses. Ok. And she had orses the pull the little carty things (trotters?). She also has an adopted daughter (4 or 5, lol, I wish I had a horsey mum. I live in the city).
Anyway, I am having a meeting/cafe lunch too meet up. That's were we will discuss horses and ponies.
THEN, I GOT A SHOCK!
She has a pony at her place she wants me to ride, BUT, she needs to see me ride. She wants to kinda test my riding, like see if I can take this pony all the way.
I can only:
Jump low cavaletti (sp?)
I also went out cross country once, that was fun. We jumped a log. Not sure how high it was, near full cav size. One time we galloped, but we were supposed to canter. The ponies always do that at my riding school.
Any tips if someone is online now?
To be a rider you must be:
Brave enough to canter in the field, when your horse may gallop for the first time.
Strong enough to hold your pony back.
Physically and mentally strong.
YOU MUST BE READY..
TO HAVE A GREAT TIME!
