Real-life Drama: I learnt to ride in Cyprus!
Akrotiri Saddle Club (ASC) in Cyprus is a great community of young and senior members who all share a love of horses. I lived in Cyprus for three years, and over that period I learnt to ride and took part in many competitions against other riding clubs in Limassol and Larnaca.
Real-life Drama: I couldn’t have my dream pony!
“You’re going on a pony trekking holiday!” The words made me bounce off the walls just thinking about it. The holiday was in the Brecon Beacons, I would own a pony for the whole week and have two rides every day! It promised to be loads of fun! Was it? Yes... and no. I met loads of really nice people, and made lots of new friends and I also met the pony of my dreams.

Real Life Drama: I bought a pony – and got one free!
I’d been looking for a while to buy a good quality Traditional Gypsy Cob to show – and came across a breeder on the Internet. The horses on their website were all so beautiful, well bred and really true to type – just how a Traditional Cob should be. On their stallions page I had never seen so many fantastic stallions owned by one stud before. Heaven!
Real Life Drama: My pony’s stable is haunted!
The DIY stables where I keep my pony, George, were built in Victorian times. It’s an old coach house, built in a square, and George has one of the lovely old cage boxes where the carriage horses lived.
