Snowdrop the Shetland pony’s first ride

This week, it’s time for Snowdrop the Shetland pony’s first ride.

Snowdrop has had his injections, settled in with all his friends and completed his training at Shetland Pony Club.

So, it’s time for him to go on his first ride, with our horse trainer, Tom, who has been working with him.

First, he needs a big breakfast to be ready for his day.  Then he needs his saddle and bridle to be put on carefully.
