Thanks guys!

Endiku - Not sure to be honest! He's registered with the Irish Skewbalf and Piebald society, but that was due to me microchipping and registering him myself. I say he's got some shetland in him, but he could be just about anything

Shropshirerosie - We haven't got that far as of yet, while my little one has been riding for a few years, she had a bad experience last year with a pony and would be quite a nervous rider. I did see him ridden off the lead, but to be honest I have some reservations as when lunging and her riding, he will sometimes try to stop and the tail swishes a few times. I'd quite like to find a good kid to get on him and give him a schooling, which is part of the reason I'm thinking of moving my boys to a different yard. So for the moment he's doing a great job and thats all I can ask of him and he has a home with us until they grow out of each other.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Ah yes, that sounds suspicious! Are you near a pony club? I presume it's as active in Ireland as in the UK. That's where all my best child-horsey contacts come from.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Heres a few more pics of him... my internet connection is REALLY bad at the moment so it is taking me about 15 min to upload just one on here :(

Rosie - I'm looking at moving them to a riding school so that there are other kids kickin about. I know plenty of jockeys but they are all down towards work direction and this new yard is about a mile down the road so I might be able to get them out. I really want my little one to get out riding with other kids, I know she'll enjoy it more.

Anyway, as requested by GH, here are a few more snaps. I do realise we have ALOT to work on, but please be kind as my little on is quite nervous and these snaps are from 1st and 2nd shows for us

Of course you have a lot to work on - it's a lead line class! AFAIK, those are mainly for making sure little kids get the "show bug". :) Your kid looks great in his or her show clothes, and the pony is darling!

There is nothing better than seeing kids on leadline ponies having fun. They look like a million dollars, and the important thing at the moment is that everyone is having fun.

We are all working at improving our riding, it is a quest that should go on all of your life, so you would expect that someone at that age to be at the start of the journey.

Oh my gosh what a PERFECT little pair! They look so great together and the pony doesn't look anything like he does in the first photo! Good work OP, you really impressed me how you found that stunning little pony under all that fur!
