Friday Flashback II

I'm not sure how well the first installment of this feature was received or whether comments are down due to the url name change & people no longer finding their way here.
Hopefully it is the latter case and people will find their way back sooner rather than later & perhaps I might get to spend more time in the saddle and actually give you guys something to read ;-)

Anyways no more waffle from me - here are today's Friday Flashback photos of what could have been my first pony back in '88/'89. Sadly not meant to be as my dad got a job offer in Luxembourg and the whole family moved at the end of 1989 and I had to wait until a few months after my 21st birthday when I moved back to Ireland to finish my degree after a year abroad to meet Kika in 2007.

Again no helmet -  I have no excuse other than I don't know what my parents were thinking
However I did own a helmet in & around that time as evidenced from the below...

Proof of helmet
And just for funsies, here's another gratuitous early riding pic, sadly again no dates on this pic but I reckon it was taken before the ones above. I look a lot smaller...although then again the pony is larger than a shetland...

Yes - a helmet...but no hands or stirrups, lol, pity I didn't turn into a horse-riding prodigy
All these images are mobile phone pictures of printed pictures...apologies for any loss of quality!
