Back in Harness

29 Apr


Brief (and shockingly) good weather was a perfect time to put the riding pony back in harness.  She hadn’t been driven in about a year due to being a riding pony that is almost but not quite outgrown.  She would be considered outgrown by many.  However, in Europe kids stay on ponies a long time and in America kids move off ponies quickly.  My daughter does not want to give up the pony she grew up with so she is the last teen we know riding a small pony!   This year it may be harder for this little pony to pack a bigger rider around the show ring so pony goes back in harness.

This is the time of year I start longing for a big riding horse again.  But driving is fun, too.  And we’ve got the pony!

    She doesn’t look too unhappy about it, either. I can sure understand her not wanting to give up the pony she grew up with. She looks like such a sweet animal.

      I think she enjoys harness more than riding, too. She is a sweet/crabby pony. She is very smart and thinks she should be in charge. But her worst trick is refusing to move.

    Very nice looking! You know, we have several shetlands at the barn that are the choice mount for adults and children alike….although it does look rather comical when ones legs almost drag along the ground 😛
    Good look with your horse hunting.

      Thank you! LOL It’s hard to give up riding those ponies. They are so cute and devious.
