This is me yesterday with The New Forest Driving For The Disabled. To say it is the highlight of my week is an understatement 😍
Living with cancer is challenging. I have been in active treatment for over five years, had six operations and over 70 rounds of IV drugs, including three lots of chemo. I have currently been on chemo for a year!
So many operations and drugs have taken their toll on my body. I have limited movement in my left arm, and have lost dexterity in my fingers. I also suffer with spasms in my hands and my joints lock. But I am alive and grateful for every day ❤️
Charities such as Driving for the Disabled are a true gift 🎁 It gives people like me the chance to learn a skill, enjoy horses and the countryside and make new friends
So if you can please add a £1 donation to your entries or a separate donation if you wish and help support our wonderful charity this month 🐴 ... See MoreSee Less

My old mare Lucy came to me in 1998 aggressive and dangerous. It took me 6 months to catch her as when I went in the field she would charge at me, if I didn't run she would try to kick my head in. It then took another 6 months of gaining her trust to let me get on her. Once I was on her I fell off her atleast once every day for a year. Everyone kept telling me to give up and have her shot as she would never be any good. I refused to give up and boy did we prove them wrong we ended up showing, show jumping, dressageing, doing Endurance rides of upto and including 80km, she taught lots of children to ride over the years and she was an amazing hunting pony. She would whip in, stand point, do gate duty and I could even ride her and lead two children one each side. Not only all this but she became my best friend and we had an amazing bond. In November 2009 she became quite unwell and was diagnosed with a rare illness called amyloidosis. I was told she would be dead by Christmas. But her fighting spirit shone through and in Feb 2010 I forfilled my dream to ride her on the beach and in May 2010 we did a 12mile sponsored ride in the new forest. We had an amazing time and despite her illness we had lots of fun charging around the ride. Sadly that was the last time I ever rode her. In July 2010 I had to make the heartbreaking decision to let her go. The illness was becoming to much and although she tried to keep going I knew she was going to start to suffer soon. I miss her so much but am thankful for the time I had with her and all the lessons she taught me about horsemanship and life. She was truly a 1 in 8 million pony and she made the world a better place just by being her. 💚
Herbie Forest Fox came into my life as his last chance before the meat man. He hadn't had the greatest of starts in life he was 8 and had had atleast 6 owners already. The lady I got him off had only owned him for 6 months and the people before that had only owned him for 5. He had also been a stallion till he was 7. He was aggressive to handle and dangerous to ride. He was opinionated and had no flight instinct. He would fight. He bit me when I first got him and when I told him off he just turned straight round and kicked me. I was told I was wasting my time with him and I should send him to the sale and hope the meatman bought him. He came to me from a natural horsemanship home and I was told if natural horsemanship couldn't help him nothing would. But I knew someone had to give him a chance and I kept working with him. Sometimes we had to compromise and do things in an unorthodox way but slowly he started to trust me and we proved all his doubters wrong. We've had success in the show ring, dressage arena and also showjumping. We have been hunting and on sponsored rides. He has his querks even now at 21 years old. But I honestly wouldn't change him for the world. He's an incredible pony and helps me so much with my mental health issues. He's always happy to see me I don't even have to call him he sees me and comes over. He's a far cry from the aggressive boy that came to me. I owe him so much and I love him with all my heart. ❤
Buddie has a long story . Quite sad but he’s now so appreciated I’d love to share it
Pooch has a poorly story starting with canker 2020 and continued until the beginning of this year! Now hoping to start work and hope for the best! Xx
Mickey was left in a field for years still entire and then someone who knew of him messaged me and we went and met him! We loved him and arranged to go pick him up! Now he is a very much loved little man!
In 2007 I bought a 4 year old 18hh Danish Warmblood called Comfast. We call him Erik. He hadn't had much done if anything, so with the help of my mum we started his groundwork and I backed him. He was a bit tricky as we used to have to put the bridle together on his head as he didn't want the whole thing on in one go, he was cold backed and quite a worrier with anything different or new. Then we sent him to Jason Webb in Kent for 4 weeks to help bring him on with his transitions. Jason did wonders and when we picked him up he was confident being ridden and happy with his bridle. We had some brilliant hacks and I just started schooling him. Then one morning I got to the field and Erik was hopping on 3 legs. He was struggling to use one of his front ones. I rang the vet who told me to put him in the stable and they will see him that afternoon. When the vet came he was sound so nothing they could do as there was nothing to assess. This went on for about a week with him being on and off lame. Then on one of the days I rang the vet and they could get there straight away and could see how lame he was. There was nothing obvious so he went to the clinic for some xrays. When the vet gave me the results I was devestated. He had navicular stage 4 which means they had completely ossified, ringbone on both cannons, side bone in both fronts and one sidebone had fractured just above the coronet band. The vet couldn't believe it and had never seen so many degenerative bone diseases in one horse before. The vet advised I put him to sleep as he will never be sound again even paddock sound. He said the results were due to genetics and breeding. This was surprising as his breeding was amazing and he was branded so parents had passed their gradings. My dad was not having any of it and told the vet Erik was coming home and we would give him a chance even if we just get him sound enough to retire. He came sound on bute within 2 days and he had 6 weeks box rest to repair the fracture. He then came sound and stayed sound without bute and I bought some covello boots to help him move around in the field. I started working him again and managed to do a couple of sponsored rides including Hamptons. That was my main goal and to get a photo jump picture was the icing on the cake. After that I retired him as I thought if he's going to break I'd rather he does it in the field being a horse and not because I've asked him to do something under saddle. He is 19years old this year, he lives out 24/7, we have not had any lameness for years and he is a very happy playful horse. It was always my dream as a kid to have a big horse and although it didn't turn out quite as i planned, I absolutely adore him and couldn't imagine not having him in my life. The picture below is at Hamptons just before I retired him at 10 years old.
Oh I think we have one 🤭 top photos from 2018 & bottom from this week… 😅
