    Yes, in Germany. Every yard I've been on has at least one! They remind me of typical thelwell pony pictures!

    They're very versatile creatures. A friend from a previous yard has one who is still being ridden at 30! She did everything with him over the years.

    The picture of when you first got her is shocking, it's amazing how far she has come!

    My student's haffy was bought after being horribly "cowboyed on". He came with some issues that took some ironing out. But he became a fabulous and veratile horse.

    He did some dressage



    But really likes to foxhunt




    I love that photo of you and Hattie doing that hunt gate. Real talent there.

    The bloodhounds were parading at the show last Sunday, I think Hattie was a bit disappointed that we weren't actually going out with them That hunt jump was the first time I' jumped her out hunting, just pure luck the photographer was the other side (same lovely lady who took the SJ photos).

    They do seem to be versatile little horses, your students one looks lovely. I really should work more on Hattie's daughter but I feel there is no real hurry, she is only 4 and so far has exceeded my expectations.

    I cursed myself

    I went for my first ride since January (except for Dubai) at a yard I'd found on Sunday.

    Turn up to tack up, and she points in to the school at a haflinger. My face looked like this :/

    I check out ponio being ridden by the kid and impressed that he is forward without having to kick him on constantly, and he is soft in his mouth and no gadgets.

    WELL.
    I was pleasantly surprised. He was soft, forward and willing.. did EVERYTHING I asked of him. I was pulled up by the instructor "He only has little legs.. he can't push more!" Aha poor fella.

    I put him to bed... he's 24!! I'd have expected him to be 14ish, no sign of stiffness or slowing down.. he's a cracker!

    I feel sad I won't be riding him again, but they're putting me on their M level mare who has competed internationally!

    I'm so glad you had a good experience on a haffy Even though they only have little legs they can whizz for short distances Hattie keeps up when we go hunting. I hope Hattie will still be moving and happy to work at 24, I will be 64!
