Hi Kyanya, I don't show at present although I have done before (used to show my grey Dales M&M and riding club, and also my Morgan in breed shows). I am concentrating on schooling Saturn but his previous owners showed him inhand and he's done quite well. His registered name is Wolsey Saturn and he's by Wolsey Lord Nelson out of Wolsey Emma Jane. He is a cracking little pony! Lovely ponies you have by the way, are they any particular breed?

Notpoodle my Exmoor Toby has dumped everyone who has ridden him but he's quite a character; just has a drop-shoulder swerve you can't sit to!! He's also EXTREMELY fat! (as is my grey Dales!!).

These are my other ponies:



And my Morgan (although he is not a pony )

Oh my Greydales. I am incredibly jealous...just look at your collection of yummy dales. I would love one, let alone a gazillion like you

Your morgan is gorgeous too but I must admit...that grey is EXCEPTIONAL!

This is my mare, Stumpy...i often post pics of her on DalesFan and see you around there

The pic is my 5ft3 sis on 14.2hh Stumps.

I can't resist showing you a picture of my new share pony Sherry. She's a 13.2 Welsh, and forward going but absolutely bomb proof. Perfect!

Pony english or western saddle?

I love the pics! I'm not a pony owner but a rider at my riding school I prefere the little ones. I even got to like the canter because of a school horse named Lady. She is so sweet 13.5 hands and just is a dream to ride, but she hates other horses. She is around 20 or so and has been used for children's riding lessons, I wish she could be mine but that will never happen.
Anyway, my question is in all your pic's I noticed that you all ride English saddle, I use a Western saddle is their a difference in preformance?

The first two photos are of Gypsy who is a Dales mare, albeit unregistered. And the last photo is a New Forest pony who wa registered, although not the typiest I've known.

All your Dales ponies look like little crackers. You're very lucky to have a fiedl full of the hairies and then a gorgeous Morgan too. He really is something special, isn't he!

I have a great pic of Bea riding my 10.2 shetland, but I'll have to ask her permission before I post it!
Love the pics.

Love the pics.

You can post it! Looking forward to seeing it. I wonder what it looks like. It was definitely very difficult keeping my balance on her!

(I have to say I was only on Hackedoff's shetland for a few moments. Don't worry I didn't take on a long hack or anything.)

Drummers Mum,

When I first saw the one of you on Tango I wondered what you had growing out of your leg...then I realised it was the letter marker in the background.

Silly me.

If I did this right, it should be me (5' 6", 150-ish) on Timmy who is 51". Only his first or second time being ridden, so please pay no attention to my position I was just trying to keep him moving and comfortable.
