How Blue Cross pony Perry has helped young Charlotte regain her confidence and get back in the saddle...
An encounter with a previous pony knocked eight-year-old Charlotte Adshead-Curnock’s confidence. However, since rehoming Blue Cross Perry eighteen months ago, the horse lover has jumped at the chance to get back in the saddle.
“I do a lot of dressage competitions, and we’re going to start going back to a bit of jumping competitions; only low though,” Charlotte explained when we caught up with the pair at the stables.
“I want Perry to be a movie star. He is well behaved and he has a really big jump in him,” she added.
The pair competes in competitions held by the Pony Club; a national organisation for young people that encourages children to ride.
