Good morning all   I had a pony when I was a child - rotten thing bucked me off and broke my arm and Ma sold it.  After that I rode other people's horses until my children were old enough for ponies and we got another, and a ride and drive cob for me  - didn't do dressage bless her - cantering a figure eight confused her so much her legs got tangled up!  Last time I rode was about 4 years ago, I went trekking on Exmoor - absolute bliss!!!  Sister and brother in law used to do eventing until bad backs (theirs and the horses') stopped that happening - since then they've just lots of mucking out and grooming, but just recently SIL bought herself a cob - I've not seen him yet but I might be tempted .................
