I've been polishing brass today

Before we got quite so old, we had a pair of harness ponies that we drove in competitions. I drove the ponies and Vince was my groom. Eventually it all became more work than pleasure and we found a good home for the ponies. We have sold almost everything to do with our carriage driving days except for a set of hand-made harness. We’re now about to advertise the harness on an appropriate Facebook group page. So today I’ve been polishing dozens of brass buckles. I cleaned the harness some time ago but the brass components needed an extra polish. This is about the nicest photo I have of the ponies. The one on the far side is Burgundy and the closest one is Fabian. They were Welsh C ponies. Aren’t they beautiful?

@jaboUK I've been going through all my old "Carriage Driving" magazines and then I'm going to give them to a friend who is still driving. They are from 1996- 1998. It's been interesting seeing who was driving then etc. I haven't really followed results either here or in England but then I went online and it seems Boyd Exell (Australian) is now the World Champion. He is based in the UK.
