What we’ve been watching……..Yes, the cross-country equestrian event…..yet AGAIN!
Here is Jac, a 1970 Trendon Gregor (customised by Shelly) on his way to catch and saddle up his pony.
Unfortunately ‘we’ must have gained some weight as our Ruthsdolls ‘Polo Whites’ won’t allow the Dollydoodle Olympic T-shirt to tuck in as we wanted it to.
As you can see we still haven’t found our riding crash hat but have now located the cycling/skate boarding hard hat that was needed the other day for the cycling…
…..so wearing this I guess is safer than nothing. (Apologies as always for the stray hairs over his face. Will I ever learn????)
Giving his pony a well deserved pat on his neck. (Completely forgot to to turn the pony round the other way for some of the shots…a sure sign that I’m still under the weather healthwise!)
He was pleased to be able to don his Ruthsdoll’s black rather than his usual brown riding boots for a change (as you are not allowed to wear black boots when playing on the Polo fields where he is normally riding these days) as he prefers wearing these as they are softer leather allowing him to ‘feel and relate to’ his pony better..
