    I've got used to Charlie's weird way of going now, but having jumped Una who sees a perfect stride, its nice to not have to think about it myself. If i dont put Charlie at the exact right spot he will ALWAYS run into the bottom of the jump and muddle his way over it! He's a weird one
    What would I do without you, my loyal and precious friend?
    Part mischief, but all blessing, and faithful to the end.

    This is my first jumping picture. I was 23 years old.


    Needless to say, things have improved slightly in the last 2 years

    Mine isn't even that old - start of summer 09. We were meant to be jumping small haha, to give the learning ponies some practice, but I have improved honestly ( at my position ahaha).


    And my only pic of me jumping Toby (that I have hehe). Got none of me jumping Peanut .
