Smile Hello! :)

Just thought I'd introduce myself, I am a member of other forums but just thought I'd have a mooch around here too :)
I'm Danni, I'm 17 and from Shropshire. I own 1 pony called Gypsy, he's a 13.3hh Traditional cob. I bought him 4 years ago from a dodgy dealer who sedated him and sold him to me as a 'child's hunting pony'. we stupidly bought him and took him home the day we viewed him. Turns out he was absolutely bonkers, jumped over stable doors, wouldn't hack out, reared, tanked off with or without rider and really not the pony they described!

Extremely long story short 4 years on I've taught him to jump, hack out in company and on his own, and how to be a very happy pony. It turns out Gypsy is extremely talented for his breed and height and we regularly compete in show jumping upto 3'3 courses. We did our first ODE last week and came 15th with only a few run outs XC. We have our next event this Sunday :)

So thats a bit about me and the pony (more the pony than me!)

Thanks :)
