I think this is a great idea for people that want to show their horse/pony but can't because they might be injured, too old etc it's a fun way to keep showing
Miss Lou Lou as we call her, is a 24yr old part welsh pony who we have owned for over 5years
In that time she has been diagnosed with Cushings, EMS and cataracts in both lower parts of her eyes, this doesn't stop her as still loves to hack out, do intro dressage and pop a few jumps for good measure
I decided to set up this show as I know from experience how difficult it can be to go to shows with a pony that doesn't quite fit the bill. Our pony Louise has a broken crest, she also has EMS and Cushings, but she is just the way our vet wants her to be "healthy and doing fine", But in the show world, they would like her to gain more weight and be perfect from head to hoof.
It can be very disheartening to go to a show and not get placed purely on how your pony looks, even though you have done everything right, knowing that you just can't afford an all singing show pony.
We know lots of people who can't get to shows for one or more reason, this is a fun way for them to take part and enter photos of themselves doing every day fun things with there ridden or non-ridden equines, even if they are not perfect, In our eyes all equines are perfect and we wouldn't swap them for the world.
If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.James Herriot
