Mikey is my 25 year old quarter pony who I’ve owned for the past 9 years. We used to do eq classes and lots of trail rides, but since he is older now he enjoys a quiet life full of buckets of Equine Senior and lots of baths. Mikey loves water. He spends his time mostly just napping and farting. He’s still sassy though, and he’ll be with me until the end of his days. He’s the best pony a kid could ever ask for and the best friend I could ever have growing up.
Please can someone explain to me why Zara Phillips is on the GBR team?!
What about Emily Wilson and Opposition Buzz, Oliver Townend with any of his horses, Clea Phillips and Lead The Way, Angus Smailes, Emily Llwellyn, Pippa Funnell?
All these great riders and horses with consistently good results and just because Zara Phillip is a royal and she got one good result recently she gets a place on the team.
Nevertheless I will of course be supporting them all wholeheartedly, especially the dream team William Fox-Pitt and Mary King
