Dog Loves His Pony Rides

freddie-on-shetland-pony.jpg

A Jack Russell dog shows off his horse riding skills.

Freddie leaps on the back of his neighbor’s Shetland pony Daisy for a trot around the paddock in Flaxley, Gloucestershire, England.Owner Patricia Swinley said the dog was a “natural” jockey whose equestrian skills have blossomed.“When he first saw Daisy he rushed across the yard and just jumped straight on her back,” she told the BBC.

Freddie, who has been nicknamed the Flaxley Flier, is often to be seen riding round the 25-acre farm and Daisy, who stands at just 37 inches tall provides the perfect taxi, for her pal.“The children love to come and see him,” Mrs Swinley said. “I guess it is a rather peculiar sight.”

Owner said: "Freddie was riding Daisy one day when my friend Sally's Jack Russell Percy jumped up there too."It seems Percy was really keen to imitate his older friend. They tend to squabble when they're riding together, so now we let them take it in turns."Freddie is getting quite old now and can't leap up there anymore, so we lift him on. Then Percy has his go. He's very eager and jumps around all over the place in excitement. But luckily Daisy is used to it and doesn't mind."Freddie and Percy also appear happy to ride in a little cart as Daisy, who is just 37 inches tall, pulls them around the country lanes. Patricia added: "Freddie became famous for riding Daisy and local schoolchildren still pop by the farm in the hope of seeing him. But now it seems Percy has become his very keen understudy."
