Seneca Valley Pony Club Horse Trails
1987 (I’ll save you the math. 32 years ago. I was 24.)

George took everything I threw at him.
Bridleless & bareback? Whatever.
Fancy dress side-saddle with imported double bridle? Whatever.
George had the light-footed grace of a carthorse and the effervescent joie de vivre of a phlegmatic tank. We didn’t win or excel at any of these activities. We just did them. Whatever they were.
We did win a 3′ hunter class at a local show. I think the judge was startled that George got around the course. A lot of folks couldn’t see the point to George. His owner and I adored him.

What a treasure of photos! Both this post and the two others you linked. Thank you!
Seems like forever and at the same time, just yesterday.
I remember George! He was a fine fellow.
Adorable photo of both of you, and George sounds like he was a pretty perfect partner!
“Seems like forever and at the same time, just yesterday.” Truth.
