    I love these threads! Brilliant photos!

    I do have earlier pictures in my parent's archives, but these are the oldest i have for now:

    Me and my old mate Basil in the 80s:



    1990:


    Shadow:


    That is mini-me stood next to the little Shettie X on the left!


    Looking rather fetching in my mum's old show jacket (1991ish!):


    Mr Pip and I at our yard show... yes we did make it round the whole course, pretty much in a trot! But he was fab and jumped everything and we came 6th! It must of been in the very early 90s i think! :


    I'll see if my mum can scan some real oldies and send them to me... there will be some true classics in that lot!

    No photies, but I have seen a photie of me in the late 50's, tweed jacket, boots, winged jods and hat with knicker elastic. I was lall of 4 and the cause of all this finery. a riding lesson and a mother for whom standards were everything. Hyacinth Bucket could have taken lessons!

    Brill photos! I love these threads.

    My old ones are only from the 90s so not really old enough

    Smile because it happened.

    I started riding in 1965 when the RS insisted on everyone wearing tweed jackets with a shirt and tie or plain polo neck jumper, a hat with hair in a hairnet for every lesson. LOL ! However bringing the horses in form the field was done riding bareback and leading a couple of others wearing scruffs and hatless. Unfortunately no photo's of that time but there is one somewhere of me leading tourists out on treks in connemara, no hat and aged all of 12 years. H & S was unheard of, but we all survived. Will try and dig it out later.

    I found some old pics today, and remembering this thread I decided to scan them in. They are the first piccies ever taken of me riding, and are all taken at a local riding school in early 1985.

    Me and Bilbo (my favourite pony) - check out the chair seat



    Bilbo again (how much good would that hat have done in a fall?)



    And Oscar
