More importantly ( ) I'd like to see who you were long-reining the first picture !!!!
AnnieD... I was long-lining my Joey - that photo was taken in September of last year...
I'd had a nasty riding accident back in the May of '12 - badly broke and displaced 6 ribs and damaged my spleen so my confidence was shattered and I vowed not to ride our 16hh Clydie as he is too tall!! Joey kind of found me in August, about a month before the above pic was taken and has been a true "lifesaver" in terms of not having put a hoof wrong since he arrived. He came to me overweight too so I was trying to lose some and working him from the ground back then!!!
Fast forward to last weekend and we're looking a lot trimmer between the pair of us. My confidence has grown SO much now... I feel happier riding than I have done for years, let alone since my accident and it's all down to my gorgeous little tri-coloured man. He never showed a problem carrying me when I was 13 stone but just because he could, doesn't mean he should - he was a very important part of my reasons for losing the weight... and I'm sure he's a lot happier for it!!!
Love the pony pics too.

Amazing what our boys motivate us to it's Apocalypse who motivated my weight loss too
Cripes, I'll be 50 in December, wish I looked as good as you
