... not to compete, only to watch, worse luck. Jerry is on medication after catching laminitis (caused by eating too much spring grass) AGAIN, and at the moment Rio and Juno resemble pot bellied pigs rather than horses :o :p

However we WILL be ready to compete when they hold the show again in September. Hopefully. :rolleyes:


Ellie, Julia and Small

Pair of GORGEOUS Dales ponies

This was the winner of the disabled driving class. The horse is called George and was the sweetest guy ever, letting the children (many of whom had learning difficulties) climb all over him and braid his mane after the class. Aww!

They also brought this pretty guy for the cones class

The guy who runs the driving events in our area and organised this show (the guy who wants to buy Juno off of me - no chance!) brought along this new horse. He's called Jet and he's b..e..a..utiful! He looks a lot like Juno, but bigger and has more showring experience. I love him!


This is my favourite picture from today. The driver is called Malcolm and is a friend of my Moms, the horse is called Jack, is a black stallion, and is GORGEOUS!

But this little guy had to be my favourite. He was the smallest horse there, only 28" tall (that's even smaller than Jerry, who's 34")! He's called Toby, and he entered the cones class pulling a four wheel carriage carrying two grown people, galloped flat out on his tiny legs, and finished with a better time than most of the bigger horses! He's such a cutie! <333

Now I just can't wait for September to take my boys and show them off! :D

Edit: Hmm, sorry about the pics all being different sizes ... they were all nice and equal when I started :confused:

Wow they are all awsome! I would like to learn to drive horses, When I finally get my dal of course I will do road dog with him and doing RD how could I not want to get the Coach dog title too? I always thought it would be awsome to have an old restored carrage for my future dals t orun with in parades.
