Imperial Flirt, otherwise known as Flirt, Pony, Thhhhhh or our very first dependent. For a welsh pony, Flirt has certainly landed on her feet. For the last 15 years, she has been resting her heels on Michael A Tweedie's coin and every month when he pays her agistment bill, I know he feels #blessed.
The highlight of Flirt's short competition career was in 2008 at the Open Pony Dressage Championships at WPNEC. Like a bolt of lightning from the sky, we won the Preliminary 1.3 with a whopping score of 73.6%. The (almost unbearable) irony, is that many years and many thousands of dollars later, my PB dressage score is still on Flirt. True story.
Flirt is completely unsuitable for breeding, children or anything much really, but she keeps us entertained with her love of carrots and lemonade, her pretty face and sunny personality.
