Meet new boy Fred­die

The People's Friend - - Helping Others 45 -

Fred­die is Cotswold RDA’S new­est re­cruit. Just six years old and with the group for only two months, he is al­ready mak­ing a big im­pact on Flyer and the other ponies.

At the mo­ment, he isn’t be­ing used for RDA work un­til he has done some train­ing with Debbie and Lou. With his pre­vi­ous own­ers since he was nine months old, he has a few things to learn about life in RDA be­fore he starts help­ing rid­ers.

In the mean­time, he is get­ting to know all the ponies and has made some firm friends.

“Fred­die likes ev­ery­thing and every­one is his friend,” Lou says. “He even loves him­self – and will hap­pily stare at him­self in the mir­rors of the in­door school as he rides past.”

Fred­die is quick to learn and hav­ing set­tled in well, Lou has high hopes for him as a great ad­di­tion to their team – and he al­ready has a best friend.

“He loves Bobby and Bobby loves him,” Lou says. “They are prac­ti­cally in­sep­a­ra­ble and will wan­der round the field to­gether and whinny for each other when they are apart. It’s very sweet.”

New re­cruit Fred­die is set­tling in nicely.
