Andy was fitted for his harness – all the pieces had to be let down many holes as he is a bit *** cough *** fat. Anna wants to drive him while she is here and he would love to do something apart from eat.
Next it was Hammy’s turn. Hammy has err, filled out. His britching does not fit but it will do for training now. We will swap it for Andy’s which has more room.
Anna long-reined Hammy in the school while Waffle came in to point and laugh.
Hammy remembered he had been long-reined before and he happily pottered around with Anna. Meanwhile, Daisy had this notion to ride Charlie.
So Waffle had to “help” her as well. Daisy learned to ride on Andy and Charlie, though Charlie was always the speedier of the two.
Does anyone have a saddle we can borrow for Anna that will fit Andy, a 42″ (height and probably width) Shetland pony? It would just be for a few weeks.
The girls want to go out on a trek at some stage.
It was a very good experience for everyone. The Minions were totally bemused by these antics. They have never seen such things and they watched everyone with eyes on stalks.
Eventually, they were sent out in true cowboy fashion.
Anna and Daisy rode their Shetland ponies like gauchos!
Who says adults can’t ride Shetland ponies?
