I grew up riding H/J and had a great childhood on the back of "Gopher" - a palomino small pony whose show name was Go For The Gold. We did small pony hunters, both "C" and "A" shows, and went to pony finals for a couple of years, but were never that competitive.
I outgrew him and my parents sold him with the intent of buying another horse, and I haven't heard anything about him recently. I appeal to the COTH community. Do you know him? Can you tell me how my boy is doing? He would be 24 now.
you may have already done this but there is a 24 yr old small pony registered on the USEF website, who is owned by Natalie Jayne, and was just doing the smalls at WEF so apparently he's still going strong! If you google his and her name, you can even see a pic from WEF this year.
Mayati - didn't mean to forget you, just read so quickly I skipped over your post. Thank you for your help! Also got in touch with someone on FB tonight who is a show secretary who will see him tomorrow! The internet is a marvelous thing...
