my Fell pony today at the place in Kent where he's being schooled. He was being ridden by the young man who is schooling him he's (he's 14.hh) and going beautifully. He looked absolutely lovely and seemed very happy. He has about another week to go and then I'll be having him back at livery near me. Hopefully, I'll be able to keep up the good work. He demonstrated his school work so far and also took him out on a quiet road so I could see how he reacted. He really was very good and actually looked as tho he was enjoying his work. He looked really well and relaxed - oh and he jumped over a little cross pole jump without hesitation. He is almost 4 years old has just been broken in now. He wasn't touched in about 3 months ago. He also positions himself when ridden up to a gate and the rider can open the gate from him. He's very forward going at the moment but not 'mad'!!!
