Lakeland Equestrian: Horse Diaries

Welcome to Charlie …

Horse: Uncategorized - May 4th, 2011

On a dark April night at 11.30pm we hit the road, trailer attached with a lead rope and headcollar to pick up the newest addition to the yard… ‘Charlie Chaz’. A 13hh, chestnut pony with a mane equal in fluffiness only to Jigsaw’s was winging his way to us from Ireland – picked up that afternoon we were to meet him at a service station at 2am.

As 2am came and went we waited in nervous anticipation of our new little friend. Soon he arrived in a 7 horse red wagon, his first touch onto English soil went like a dream – he behaved impeccably and got straight into the trailer (thank goodness – we did not relish the thought of chasing a pony up the M6 at 3am!) and we were soon home.

He went straight into his brand new fluffy bed and slept for what was left of the night. Next morning he was introduced to Jigsaw and Murphy in the field and they had a great time! There was a little frolicing and a lot of chomping as he took in the English view.

The next introduction was to Lottie his new superstar owner – who’s only words since he arrived have been ‘I love Him’ – armed with several carrots/polo’s/apples/grass/general titbits,  they made friends instantly.

Since he arrived they have had a great time he’s been out everyday (due to the fact we are having the driest April since – well forever!), he was lunged, ridden in the lunge pen, schooled – flatwork, schooled – jumping, been to an organised ride, been to shows, and generally been made a big fuss of !
