Hi! My name is Lucy. You might well have seen me at Northington Stud and Stables. Francesca (riding instructor and owner of the yard) is my mum so I’m there quite often!
I have a pony called Rufus who I keep at the yard. He is super sweet and even though he is mine, people still ride him because I don’t mind.
Rufus is 12.hh so quite small but some big people have ridden him. He used to be a livery owned by a very tall girl called Ruby but she got too big for him and so he was passed on to me.
I love spending time with the stable girls, practising for shows in spring and summer, learning to ride side-saddle, jumping, and lots, lots more! Fran is AMAZING – she helps me with all my riding. She sometimes even pays me for helping out!
Pony gossip, showing you how to pick out hooves or groom your pony, plaiting, more about how to look after your pony and telling what I’ve been up to with Rufus, I’ll be sharing lots of things that we do at the yard on here so stay tuned!
