i love babe the pony
When I came to the barn I was called Cooper, but there was another pony with that name already at the barn. For a while they called us Cooper and Mini Cooper. Eventually they decided to rename me Tico. There really wasn't any need to do this as Mini Cooper didn't last long (he liked to buck off his riders!) but they kept the name even after Mini Cooper left. (He found a new home at a petting zoo where he would get all the attention without any of the riding) I eventually left too but this was because I didn't have enough fans to keep me around. When people rode me I liked to pull my head down every few steps and I guess some riders found this to be annoying but I only did this at a walk and trot. When I was cantering or jumping I was very well behaved. I loved to jump and would fly over them even though I was usually jumping small cross rails.
I am an old lesson horse who has since retired from this job to be a the pony of a little kid and her family. I always loved being with kids and all the attention they gave me. I was a bit of an unusual pony to ride because my canter was actually slower than my trot, or at least this is what my rider's believed about me. I wasn't much of a jumper and I wasn't good at trotting poles either but I did everything else very well.
I arrived at the barn around the same time as Molly and Milly. Of us three I am the only one currently still at the barn. (Molly - got colic and died), (Milly - retired). I do lessons with beginners as well as pony rides. I can do cross rails only when jumping so I don't do as much as the other ponies at the barn.
I was a badly neglected pony found by the barn owner, who rescued me. I came to the barn, not to be a lesson pony although I did do the occasional lesson, but to be cared for while the owner looked for a nice retirement home for me. I now live at a happy retirement home.
The date of Birth represents my arrival at the barn. I am a friendly lesson pony and pony ride pony.
