Default Scooling Ollie today - Fab!:)

Amaziingly today I had a photographer. Roped my mam into being my glamorous assistant!

We did trotting poles and poles with a little jump. Had one unsure moment approaching the jump folowed by a good pop then a naughty moment, but finished on a real positive note.

As he was geed up decided to do a short burst of canter work and got some walk to canter transitions on the left rein. He was fab, only went wrong when I dropped him *kicks self in the shin*.
So although he's still unbalanced on corners we're improving.

Here's a few pics (not many of him working though)

Canter (excuse my horrible leg position, we're going away from the gate to home so he needs a bit of encouragement here!)



Relaxing with big smiles!



Praise for the perfect pony





He may not be the most stunning, eye catching, athletic, perfect horse to anyone else but to me he's a dream
I've not smiled so much in ages

I have never 'met' him before! He looks like a lovely boy
He reminds me very much of Vinny's girlfriend Olive - although somewhat less rotund..

Hi flipper. Officially he's part bred, but all that means in his case is that he has a touch (1/8th) arab in him. It doesn't show!

In terms of breeding, he's got some Nebo and Derwen in him. His sire is a horse called Hemdean Merlyn. He was out of a friends mare. Saw him hours after he was born and just decided I wanted him! Glad I did, he's just right for me.
