Following on from the camp thread, we do need an adults camp, and Mitchie HAS to come and coach us all in sideways showjumping. Where shall we hold it, and what else shall we do?

Oh yes that's right, thanks. Smile

Can we include pony characters? If so I bagsie Black Boy or Plum out of 'Jill and the perfect pony'.

FannyPriceless · 26/07/2011 21:00

Ha ha! Plum! Because Amanda Applewood just dropped you in it, right?Wink

I'll have the pony I created for the protagonist in the pony books I wrote in a mad pregnancy-related burst of creativity.

Oh, and jills friend Martin, in the wheel chair, has to pop in to offer advice on schooling!

I always wanted mrs Darcy's Blue Smoke!

Oh yes I thought of Blue Smoke but decided I wouldn't be allowed as I wasn't a favourite pupil.Envy

What a fabulous thread. I vote for Rupert Campbell Black and Billy as instructors. And can I bag Phantom from Phantom Horse as my ride. I love palominos.

Does anyone remember Major Holbrooke? (Six Ponies/Pony Club Team and another one I can't remember). We could have him as an instructor but he'd make us spend a lot of time trotting without stirrups. Shock

Actually, for my horse, Ill have Orbit from 'horse in the house'. Smile

Right well true to form I'll be given 'Satan' (the black's son) to take. I won't be joining in with activities much, but two or three times a day you'll see me being carted off somewhere at the other end of the farm.

Saggy - Bless you - why didn't you answer my question on the favourite pony book thread - Horse in the House - of course. Isn't that the one about the houseboat and the girl called October?

Off to google and Amazon.

ExitPursuedByAGryffin · 27/07/2011 08:56

Oh - perhaps not.....

Saggyoldclothcatpuss · 27/07/2011 17:40

AAH! I saw that, but wasnt sure. October didnt ring a bell, but the houseboat did!
I actually like trotting without stirrups, its about all I was ever good at! Blush
