Pony Club camp, fancy dress competitions and mounted games, these early riding days are where the best memories are formed.

From five-year-old Eva Tierney winning her first trophy and seven-year-old Mia Byrne tackling a cross-country course, to Billy Grigson, 10, and his incredible jumping pose — we are sure these gutsy young riders will be stars of the future!

And what a lot of fun one can have riding as a child, we loved the picture of Lily Pullein, eight, with pony Mabaroan Tinkerbelle — her grin from ear-to-ear says it all.

Thanks to H&H readers for sending in these fabulous photographs of their little ones riding.
