  Letters from Penny's friends -

"What an adorable pony!  She is the very FIRST horse I ever rode all by myself.  I was 9 years old and I'll never forget walking around in small circles Penny on her my very first lesson.  She was so kind and patient.  I felt completely safe.   I learned to saddle and bridle a horse with as my guide.  As my lessons clicked by week after week, I learned how to post the trot, halt, back up, etc. on Penny.  What a good girl.  I quickly moved up from Penny to Bill and then Huck."
