Luckily, Hannah's riding instructor was on hand to help out on the confidence front, and after a few days together Hannah bounced back happier than ever and far more confident than I've seen her in a long time.
So, the search was on for a new pony. I thought it might take forever, but a week later and we have found the loveliest ponies to part loan. I especially wanted to part loan and having their owner on hand and helping her out is proving to suit Hannah perfectly. She loves both ponies, they are fun to ride, well mannered and even better, because there are two of them Hannah gets to ride out with their owner which is far more fun than riding alone 😀.
