    Nice, is that an air vent in the fly mask?

    Wonderful! Thanks for sharing. I love your POA, so cute! Fall is a gorgeous time of year in New England, that's for sure.

    I have the same fly mask and it's actually a opening for the forelock. I put it on my horse first day I got it without even noticing and took a pic, looking at it later I noticed my lack of observation!

    Beautiful photos, I am a Florida girl and have no idea what this "fall" is you speak of :P I must also say Twinkie is just an absolute doll, my first horse was a POA mare named Abbey... so sweet.

    I too am a fan of your saddle, details?

    Awesome. Fall here in the Buckeye State is also breathtaking.

    Thank you everyone.... This is my favorite season to ride, as I'm sure it is with other trail riders. No bugs, nor heat and humidity.

    Where were you riding when you took these? Looks like great trails...[/quote]
    These were taken in the State Forest, Cockaponset in CT.
    http://www.ct.gov/dep/cwp/view.asp?A=2716&Q=325056

    It encompasses 16,000 acres in several different towns.

    This is the area I ride in:

    Twinkie has Uveitis and has to wear a mask 24/7. The special masks for the Uveitis are a little too dense for riding making it hard to see. And I found the Cashel had a pretty good rating as far as keeping out the UV rays. I keep the right side of the mask totally covered as she is blind in her right eye. She can only see shadows and does much better with it totally covered while trail riding.

    Her forelock is so wispy, I went the "Polo Pony" route and roached it.
    But as Odyssey said, the opening would be for the forelock to go through.

    Thank you.... She is a sweetheart with a heart of gold and the perfect trail pony. She is very independent and we are very confident with each other. She has saved my butt and I return the favor. Best of all, we trail ride alone, which I enjoy.
    She cross any water, go up and down any terrain.

    Odyssey, what color pattern was Abbey? I do swear by their temperment and willingness to please.

    I'm not sure if it was due to the summer weather...But the leaves on the trees are usually much more vibrant this time of year.
    You should take a trip up north sometime in October. It's beautiful.

    I have used many different saddles, treeless, etc. and always go back to my Abetta Endurance. Lightweight, easy to hose down to wash, fits her nicely and at a very reasonable price.

    Thanks again.....

    Abbey was twenty-two years old, fourteen hands and my first pony when I was six. She was perfect, I have to agree that if Abbey and Twinkie are your "typical" POA then they surely are a great pony. Admittedly so I know very little about Appaloosa colors and patterns but she was mostly white with dark brown mottling throughout. I actually found some pictures to scan:

    My boyfriend is from Norfolk, CT and he really wants to go so I'm hoping that an actual visit is a real possibility. I've certainly heard lots about how beautiful the countryside is from him.

    Abetta endurance? I'll have to check it out.

    I'll second the beauty of riding in New England in the fall

    Here's a post with some photos from a hunt with Tanheath in Pomfret, CT last weekend. The territory was so beautiful! Like riding in England.

    Beautiful pictures!!! I've never been to Pomfret and didn't realize it was so open. Heck, I didn't even know they had a hunt! lol

    Very pretty and looks like you had a wonderful day, and weather wise.

    Thank you! She really was the sweetest little thing, she would come up to you in the pasture and give you kisses . I remember my parents bought her for Christmas, I opened up a plaque with her name and then my name as the owner. I didn't really fully understand at first but when they told me that I have my own pony, I just cried with happiness.

    He was born in Hartford and lived in Norfolk til he was 8, he's now 22 so its been awhile since he lived there but he still speaks of it all the time. He loves it there and would much rather be there than here. I'm not exactly sold on the whole snowing bit, but who knows what my opinion will be if I actually visit!
