Cleveland Bay pansy Cleveland Bay pansy
pansy is a beautiful bay horse with a white marking on her forehead and a white half moon on her top lip and the best temper and personality you could ask for, so far i have done allot with her and am now starting to school her a little and am doing cross country schooling and jump schooling, and will hopefully do some cross country with her in the summer. she has come on so much in the past few months after having time off and is going well. She now goes down in an outline in a walk trot and canter! When I got her she couldn't go down on the bit atall, I have also now jumped her up to four foot :)

Cleveland Bay Ruby Cleveland Bay Ruby
Ruby is a tb x cleveland who will be 6 in April. When I bought her, she was extremely nervous and shy. She wouldn't let anyone come near her, let alone put a head collar or bridle on her. The people at the stable I first kept her at didn't even believe me that she'd had a saddle on her back. She was quite underweight and she'd been moved around a lot between different people, so she just needed a bit of stability. On the first day, she spooked at everything, the trailer, the ditches, you name it ! I worked with her and she's come on so much, she's unbelievably sweet, but she's definitely the most dominant of my horses, she's the bossy one! She's still nervous around things, and she hadn't learnt to trot in hand, or to canter properly, but we're getting over that and I'm hoping there's a bright future for us, i'm hoping to teach her to jump this summer, but i'm just hoping for the best! * Lunged her the other day over a wee jump, she was really funny and trotted round quite the thing, knocked over the jump and didn't even notice, she loves doing her own thing. So excited to see how she's going to come on :)

Cleveland Bay Bilbo Baggins Cleveland Bay Bilbo Baggins
I got Bilbo in April 2012, from my friends Mum. I fell in love with him the moment I saw a photo of him and when he arrived he was exactly what I wanted! I bought him with the intention to bring him on myself slowly. So far we have hacked out together in walk and trot and he has been lunged in walk, trot and canter. As of today (21st Feb 2013) I have cantered Bilbo! It was amazing, he was completely chilled out and took it all in his stride :-) I am so pleased with him :-) so lucky to have such a wonderful and clever pony and I hope we will be the best of friends for life :-D He is really sweet and friendly chap. Loves everyone (even the vet!) and loves being groomed and made a fuss of. He's just a great character to be around. On hacks he has proved to be a little nervous of new things, but he is very happy to lead once I get him to the front.

Cleveland Bay Dancer Cleveland Bay Dancer
DANCER is a 14.1hh Bay Gelding. He is a Cleveland Bay X and is currently 12 years old, even though he acts 3. I bought him on the 21st of June 2011. When I first saw him my first thought was that he was too small for me but once I got on him he just"fit". I went back to the place for a second viewing and put a deposit down. I was still in the middle of my GCSE's at the time so I couldn't pick him up for another 2 weeks (after my last exam). The previous owner was a dealer and she ended up blackmailing me and telling me if I didn't pick him up asap he was going to the market, along with another pony, and possibly sent to slaughter and I would get my deposit back. This might not have been true but I couldnt live with myself if I let him go. I picked him up a week later. Eversince that day it has not gone too well but it has been the best couple of years of my life. To start with I had to find a saddle! (I have been through 3 saddles which were all fitted badly by 2 different saddlers. Finally I now have a wintec that fits and a brill saddler based in Alnwick, Northumberland.) Then we just couldnt bond.. we kept on hitting "brick walls" which we couldnt get passed. One day he threw me whilst out hacking as he spooked at a bird that shot out from the hedge, I had to walk home..oh and find my pony... he had just ran off and jumped a load of fences to get back to the farm. That kind of knocked a bit of my confidence out hacking with him. A few weeks later I took him out again this time with 2 other horses. The ride was going well until us riders had a bit of a spat and one went a seperate way.. we eventually joined up again but Dancer was all wound up and was getting really strong. We were on our way back when we got to the part of the field that I fell off at last time but I couldnt go down that way..we were still in the middle of not talking to one rider but the other two went off down the side of the field and I just couldnt bring myself too. I got off Dancer and by this time I was too upset to think so I just broke down in tears.. it was raining too which didnt help.. one of the other riders turned around and noticed that I wasnt following so she came back up and joined me. She persuaded me to get back on.. so I did and legged Dancer on but he just wanted to get home...... he bolted. I couldn't stop him as my riens were wet and were just slipping through my fingers everytime he put his head down. I thought I would be able to stop him at some point until I saw the gate...a five bar gate was just ahead of us and dancer had no intention of stopping, I feared the worst... Dancer trying to jump it but it all ending badly.. so I decided to jump of him mid-gallop. Fourtunatly I landed on my feet and was able to get the reins over Dancer's head in time to pull him to a hault before the gate! I walked him home on foot. That knocked all my confidence in going out on him. Next step was road hacking. I thought I would give it a go as all I did was take him out into the backfields that are owned by the farm. This didnt go well either! Silly pony loves his home too much. I started walking him down the road then suddenly he started spinning and backing up. this happened everytime I got to the same spot in the road. I started walking him down the road everyday on foot and just took him a little furthur each day. One day I started to ride him down it again and eventually I could get to the bottom of it but no further so I kept it at that and used the road as a cooling off walk after a session in the arena. BUT we are back to square one yet again. My sister is a rider too, a good one at that, but she just didnt seem to gel with Dancer. We worked on this for weeks and she eventually could ride him no bother so I asked her to start riding him down the road for me with me there so I could watch what he does from the ground. This went fab for weeks until one day I was at college and she asked if she could ride Dancer down the road without me there, I said yes because he was fine with her, or so I thought. It was just after lunch at college when I got a phone call from my mum saying "Don't panic but Dancer has put your sister in hospital". Don't panic, DON'T PANIC!! I was panicing alright! One of my fellow students drove me to the hospital wear I saw my sis "alive" thank god but with a very fat lip and a very bruised leg, luckily not broken. Dancer had walked along to the road nicely with her but bolted for home as soon as he reached the top of it. She couldnt stop him. He made a quick turn for the enterance of the farm but totally missed and hit a wall and threw her across it, into another where she landed on her face. Ouch! I asked my mum where my dad was and she replied "he has gone to find the horse". Yet again I paniced. I got to the farm and luckily the passer-by who rang the ambulance had put him in one of the stables at the farm. I untacked him and was just about to turn him out until I saw a hole in his chest! I checked him over and he had cuts on his hocks too. Thankfully both Dancer and my sister healed well. The wall is a drystone wall and still is warped where Dancer hit it! This stopped me from riding him on the road for a while. His flatwork and jumping was coming along nicely. Until he started to act up again, refusing to co-operate with me and acting like a complete prat. I had had him a year at this point and we were no further forward in anything. I was hoping to be out competing at that point but well we weren't. At one point he nearly threw me into a wall (he likes to do that to people). I took the decision to sell him. Then one day I was having a little ride on him in the arena and had a small jump up and poles on the ground and another horse owner came over and said " I saw that you are selling him, but why?" I explained that he was to hard to handle for me and we were getting nowhere. We talked for ages and Dancer just stood there snoozing. She said he looked so docile but I knew his wild side. She then suggested to take him off the market and use calmer, why didnt I think of that before. It changed everything. He was alot calmer and wouldn't even argue when I was riding him. His flatwork started to come together nicely and as for his jumping well there is no problem. I even started hacking him out again. BUT yet again we have hit another wall!! He has started being really aggresive when being ridden. Throwing himself about trying to get me off, rearing. He even bucked for the first time with me the other day. He has made me a nervous wreck but I still get back on him. We have started from scratch yet again. Only walking in the arena. Taking him down the road on foot and well as for the field hacking, that is on hold as the fields are too wet atm. We CAN do this Dancer we just need to be patient, our time will come :) I love this pony more than words can say! Although our journey has been a rollercoaster we will never give up. He is mine forever no matter what happens. Oh and by the way thanks for taking the time to read this essay of a description. :) x
