I encountered dear little Monty at a Pony Club Dressage event whilst pencilling for my cousin Gwyn, who was judging. Wish I could have shot him going through his paces but pencilling and photographing simultaneously are, of course, impossible.
However, not being able to forget his beautiful blue eyes, I later searched for and found him, being prepared for the trip home. I Iearned that the family had rescued Monty (now 7) virtually on his way to the glue factory. He was quite unmanageable, but after months of patient TLC, he calmed down and his young rider took over and, single-handedly, schooled him for eighteen months to become the clever little sweetheart he now is.
On Sunday he won “The Jackpot” (best combined scores for Dresage and Jumping in his class )!!
Go Monty Blue Eyes!!
