This little girl has been riding since she was two days old – and adorable footage has captured the moment she and her pony tried to tackle a mini jump.
Verity Seignot-Griffiths, 17 months old, is seen leading her Shetland pony, called Super Noodles, to an almost ground-level jump, for it to trot over in Bordon, Hampshire.
When the miniature animal partly knocks it down, Verity twice exclaims ‘Oh!’ and copies the pony by removing her side of the pole with her little hand.
Verity then walks over the obstacle and turns to beckon the pony with a squeaky cry of ‘Noodle’ and gives a chuckle.
If that’s not already cute enough, the tiny horse fan is wearing a pink-and-white riding hat which matches the pink and white colours of the jump obstacle.
The video was taken last Wednesday by Verity’s mother, Caroline Seignot-Griffiths, who works at Pony Pals, which provides therapy horses and ponies.
She said that Noodle has been a part of the team for nine years.
‘Super Noodles means the world to me.
‘And I’m so grateful that [Verity] seems born with my same love of animals and has a natural affinity working around them. ‘
The obstacle course is used for a variety of visits including nursery schools, support groups and can be negotiated on foot, from a wheelchair or using a walking aid.
The team also visits residential homes and hospices.
