YAY! I rode King for the first time today!
As some of you know, King is my black shetland pony stalion who was rescued from owners who were overworking him. He is four years and and 11.3 hh. I gave him awhile off work so that he had time for his joints to heal. Today I saddled him up and put on his hot pink nylon bridle. We walked, trotted, and cantered around the indoor for about thirty minutes, and he is amazing! He is definently high spirited, and he needs some training, but we aren't going to show or anything, and he doesn't seem to mind the weight. (I'm 97.5 pounds plus tack) Anyway I had more fun riding than I have in a long time! Just wanted to share! :)
