    Silly Mommy...you were soooo small for a big fence!

    I love old pictures, if only riding was like that now, *sigh*

    It's strange to think, if we're looking back at pictures from 25-30 years ago and thinking "If only riding was like that now," then try to imagine what riding will be like in 25-30 years!

    Interesting thought....

    In pre-school they brought ponies in for our yearly pictures. It doesn't look like it, but I was completely terrified by that poor old pony!

    Lord Helpus, the show in the last one I posted was Huntington Valley. Here's another one of Rommel, probably 1968, at the Sugartown Horse Show, which was also in eastern Pennsylvania.

    1972 - just_me and Jeffrey Pooka at Catamount in Suffern NY. It's not a great shot, but I've never posted this one before.

    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... timey wimey... stuff.

    did someone mention powder blue hunt coats?

    1973 - please note the "I think I'm gonna die!" expression along with the firmly grasped (white knuckles) mane. They roached the whole mane except for 3 inches that I could grab on to - my "handlebars"...

    2Dogs, Wow!

    Silly Mommy, I love your boots in that picture. They're about half as big as you were.

    I was going to take your powder blue coat and raise you a madras one, but I seem to have lost my picture posting ability with the upgrade.

    I love it! Those could be pictures of me, skinny kid with long hair doing all sorts of things with a pony, except the pony is the wrong colour http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif I don't do anything that daring anymore... I think it's because after a while you realize you don't bounce all that well anymore. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif

    Ooooh, I wanna see!

    Those boots http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif seemed to inhibit my 30% angle! I have another around here that is REALLY funny.

    I'll post tomorrow, got a little whiplash this evening from a spry youngster (which I am starting to realize that I am NOT anymore) who decided to do a rapid sidepass followed by a faster turn on the forehand a,d then piaffe the other direction followed by a buck. I need my heating pad!

    Silly Mommy, I'll keep trying! Since the upgrade, I can't post anything but a quick reply, hence no pictures. Hopefully I'll get this sorted out soon.

    These pix are just great! I wish I had started as a youngster. Is it just me or were kids and ponies jumping much bigger in "the old days?"
