Anyone for a gallop?

This is Younger Daughter, aka Claire on her pony, Star. Claire has been riding since she was about eleven and has been horse-mad ever since, even though it has led to her sustaining a broken collar bone in her teens and, recently, a broken finger. 
But may I draw your attention to the perfectly straight back and excellent posture - it's all in the genes, you see!
(She doesn't speak welsh though...)

  1. Claire has got off lightly in the accidents department. I am sure that many people have had far worse injuries than a broken collar bone and finger while engaged in far less dangerous hobbies.

    1. You are probably right, CW. All the mishaps and huge amounts of money she has parted with over the years have not put her off though. ;)

  2. I think the French have the right idea about horses - eat them!

  5. If I was going to be corny, I would say Claire is not wearing any jeans...however, I am not going to be corny.

    She does sit well and the pony looks docile. Good picture.
