Cooper Goes to Camp!!
June 10, 2006
Cooper has been at Camp for a week
Rope work front and back legs
Bearing up well
Gee this isn't too bad!
He looks pretty relaxed with that leg up, He went to camp needing work on holding up his back legs
Trotting out nicely, week three.
Looking good!
Yes, I am finally in the saddle. Photographer and friend, Judy Bosco came and played with us one day between the rain drops and the pictures that follow are from that day.
Thanks Judy, Great Job!
Such concentration, I need to work on my smile!
Working on balance in the canter
I just love how his mane looks here.
Cooper and I, Ears up and smiles, what more could any photographer ask for! We were watching Lynne's dog Dally run around chasing a big ball in her yard across the street.  Funny dog.
The advertising shot!

Cooper went to Camp 2007 this year and worked a few steps in the direction of being a driving pony.
Cooper learned to load into a straight load trailer this year.Now he has stock trailer and straight load under his belt.
I took a photo class at UMASS over the summer and had to do a self portrait.
Can you see me crouched on the ground to take the picture?
My teacher loved it :-)
Ground driving out in the fields.
Coopers friend Scout was glad to see him back home from Camp.
Our herd on a late summer night 2007.
Steelie,Cooper, Bobby, Poco and Rahal.
One problem trying to shoot my own pony, Cooper is that he will not stay away.
I walk away and turn to shoot and he follows.
Even closer
Nose in my pocket!
Cooper and our dog,Baby visiting.

This is from our first "group" Trail Ride. I met up with one of my former students, Lilyanna.( in real life I teach)
I had to have a shot of us together.Lily is on her mom's horse, Glory and me on Cooper.
They look real interested in each other.  Notice the bells Cooper wears during hunting season.
This is from the Judged Pleasure Ride at the Brookfield Sportmans Club in November 2008.
Our second group trail ride.
We tied for second place in the Novice - Long Ride division.
Happy New Year, first pictures from 2009
My husband John wanted me to include a picture he took.
This is the moment he captured when I made my New Years wish that Cooper would become a driving pony in 2009!!!!
