    Thanks everybody.
    She is a good girl and she loves her pony.
    She is working on her posting trot in the round pen, and I must say that Paddy is a saint. As long as we don't try to ride him in a grassy field, he is the best pony ever.

    Paddington is worth is weight in gold (and that's a lot ... ).

    He looks very classy, not Thellwellian at all! (The Thellwell ponies tend to be very shaggy/unkempt and misbehave in funny ways). Your daughter is adorable, and he is obviously enjoying taking care of her and showing off!

    How cute!! I LOVED the Thelwell series -- seeing this thread is going to make me want to pull them out again and laugh all over.

    So, not having kids OR ponies -- tell me what they are judged on in a Leadline Class? Outstanding cuteness?

    OMG, soooo cute!

    My daughter will be 3 in a few weeks and I hope to get her on horseback this summer and leadline next summer. Hopefully the new pony we got from AC4H will be a good mount!

    Kailyn just turned 4 YO on Valentine's day and Paddington is somewhere between 26 and 29 YO. He was a show pony his entire life and thinks that leadline classes are the best.
    He was a doll and took care of my little girl. Good Pony.

    And yes, I know Paddy has a little 'weight' issue, but he is not getting any grain, he is on a dirt lot and gets only 3 flakes of hay/day. We can't starve him more than that

    When I see them, I can't help thinking about the pictures of the Thelwells where the kids are doing splits on the fat ponies.

    Enjoy.

    HEHEHEHEHE, a much needed giggle this morning! Thelwell indeed!

    Both look lovely! Cute kid on a cuter pony, no, wait, cute pony with a cuter girl! I just can't decide.

    Nothing is more precious than fat little ponies with their young charges. Beautiful, beautiful pair. Mom, you had a pretty big smile on your face too. :-)

    Outrageously cute!

    I am hoping my almost 2 year old granddaughter will want to show--we also have the perfect lead line pony in the barn

    Pictures are Great. Don't worry about the Hay Belly, be thankful he is in good weight for his age.
    Those pictures are priceless and your daughter will cherish them when she is older.

    Very very cute!! Just wait until you get to let go of that leadline and watch from OUTSIDE the rails when they go off on their own (I did that last year w/ my son, who was 10 at the time.) It was so hard not to be there every step, but he proved that I wasn't needed. I'm sure it'll be sooner for your daughter though.

    Cuteness isn't a factor in leadline, unfortunately, but it would be hard to pick based on that alone. They all look pretty darn cute. The little humans are judged on how they can control their mounts w/out much help from their leader. Pretty much teamwork. Whomever works best together wins the class.

    Yes, she already wants to do a class all by herself. But I'm not ready to let go. Paddy is good, but she is still very, very little.

    As far as the class, it was a very little open show 5 minutes from the barn. All the kids got first place.

    Thanks for all the replies.
    Ok, my daughter just came in the office to check what I'm doing and she is currently reading the answer all by herself. Yes, she reads at 4 YO (just turned 4), I think I'm in troubles.
    Ok, I have to go, because she wants me to be better at her PR operation
