My fascination for horses began at a young age.. !!🤗 I remember my first pony at age 7 was "Majjie" a Welsh Mountain Type C pony, 14.2hh. I kept him at Millikin's Riding School in Millers Road, Brookfield, where I use to help out cleaning tack, catching, feeding and brushing ponies. He was far too big for me and most of the time he forgot that I was there. He used to rear, buck, bite, bolt and stand on feet.. I broke my arm falling off him and lost my big toenail twice to him standing on my foot and refusing to get off (he was pretty stocky & heavy and would purposely extend his front leg right out or sideways to stand on any unsuspecting toes!!🤔) learn't lots from the big, shaggy critter though.
I remember the first time I was to go to pony club, 2 men tried to load him onto the float, Majjie reared up & finally broke away from them, galloped down hill back to his paddock, jumped the gate back into his pasture & refused to come out for the rest of the day!! I never went to Pony Club.
An expert equestrienne visiting NZ from the USA came to the riding school to give a demonstration & lessons, he hopped on Majjie, to show us how to tame an unruly pony, Majjie took an instant dislike to him & promptly sent him flying, this guy was in a towering rage about now as he picked himself up, covered in arena sand! Tried to get back on but Majjie was having none of it. The guy eventually gave up, declaring the horse a hopeless case.
He eventually went to a home where he was better suited proportionally to his new, older and bigger girl owner, he went beautifully for her!!😊 #ponyride #bestlittlepony #cuteanimals #horsesofinstagram #igponies #poniesofinstagram #pony #fun #oldphotoalbum #happysnaps #horsesofinstagram #igpony #horseriding #equine #horses #insta #instafun #igphoto #photooftheday #backintheday #past #fun #lovehorses
