Great stuff! When she's cracked riding, get her a big hat, a cape and a gun, she'll be self financing in no time

Similar "problem" here with our 8 year old. Shes on lesson 3 and has decided riding is simply the most fantastic thing ever! Oh well I'm hoping in her teenage years it will keep her away from boys!! Love Lizzie

Not going to happen Lizzie, especially if the boys ride as well. We have no boys in our branch of the Pony Club and when one came for a taster day he was so popular i think it scared him off! The older girls thought he was lovely and wanted to cuddle him and take him under their wing and the younger ones thought he was "fresh meat"     we never saw or heard from him again.

You'll be wanting one of these Tee shirts then...


I make a point of telling K-L's boyfriends that I have a shotgun, a shovel and a big back garden....
