A while back I visited the georgous Charlotte, who had booked a shoot bought by her Mum and Dad, for her birthday.
The main focus of the shoot was Maddy, who is a 21 year old Connamara. She was Charlotte's first ever pony who she got when she was eight years old, it turned out Maddy didn't like children though, so there was a few teething issues at the start. They now have such a beautiful relationship and have been together for ten years. They do pretty much everything together except jumping, as Maddy is older now. Charlotte told me Maddy loves to test people out when she first meets them, but once she gets to know you and sees that you have a good heart, she will try her heart out for you. She is the bravest little horse that Charlotte has ever known.
Maddy loves her work and her food, she loves free lunging and join up. Maddy has helped Charlotte through so many tough times and she’s more than just her first pony – she is her first best friend!
Houdini is a 19 year old TB x Shire, and he is huge. He has hooves like dinner plates! Houdini was bought from the hunt by Charlotte's Dad for himself, but Charlotte sneakily stole the ride.😉 Houdini is quite the little monkey and just loves jumping out of fields, over gates and hedges. He is a bit of a dressage diva, and also does jumping with Charlotte. He isn't the bravest but he tries his heart out for Charlotte.
