0:01:060:01:08

Today, I'm in Bangor in Northern Ireland

0:01:130:01:16

to meet Emily and her pet pony, Charlie.

0:01:160:01:18

I wonder where they could be? Let's go and find them.

0:01:180:01:22

Hi, you must be Emily.

0:01:250:01:27

-Yes, I am.

-Lovely to meet you.

0:01:270:01:29

-And you must be Mum. Hello.

-Hi.

-Emily, who is this?

0:01:290:01:33

-Charlie.

-He's beautiful.

0:01:330:01:36

-And is he your pony?

-Yeah.

0:01:360:01:38

-Do you help to take care of him?

-Yeah.

-What age is Charlie?

0:01:380:01:41

-Six.

-He's six, so that's still quite young, isn't it?

0:01:410:01:45

-And how old are you?

-Six.

0:01:450:01:47

So you're the same age!

0:01:470:01:48

Does that mean you're best friends?

0:01:480:01:51

-Yeah.

-How long have you had Charlie?

-Since I was three.

0:01:510:01:55

Wow, so you've known him a very long time, haven't you?

0:01:550:01:58

-Yeah.

-And what type of pony is Charlie?

0:01:580:02:01

A Welsh Mountain Pony.

0:02:010:02:03

Welsh Mountain Ponies are called this

0:02:030:02:05

as they come from Wales and are really good

0:02:050:02:08

at walking up hills and mountains.

0:02:080:02:10

This colour, he looks a bit ginger. What do you call his colour?

0:02:100:02:14

-Chestnut.

-He's gorgeous. And what is your favourite thing about Charlie?

0:02:140:02:19

Riding him and galloping up the in the hills, in carts.

0:02:190:02:23

-That sounds very fast. Is he quick?

-Yeah.

0:02:230:02:26

And what is Charlie's favourite thing?

0:02:260:02:29

Carrots and apples and green bits and grass.

0:02:290:02:32

I heard that you grow carrots in your garden to feed him.

0:02:320:02:36

-Is that right?

-Yeah.

0:02:360:02:37

He's very lucky, do you think we can give him one now?

0:02:370:02:41

-Oh!

-Here you go.

0:02:410:02:43

Oh, yum. Yum, yum, yum, yum.

0:02:440:02:46

He likes that very much.

0:02:460:02:49

He loves that, doesn't he?

0:02:490:02:51

Rory, can you tell us more facts about Charlie

0:02:510:02:54

and his beautiful pony friends while he has a treat?

0:02:540:02:58

Of course, Ferne.

0:02:580:02:59

Ponies are herbivores,

0:03:000:03:03

which means they eat plants like hay and grass.

0:03:030:03:06

Ponies have much bigger eyes than ours

0:03:080:03:11

and some of the biggest of any animal.

0:03:110:03:15

Baby ponies are called foals

0:03:170:03:19

and they can run around just two hours after being born.

0:03:190:03:23

All pets need lots of love, care and attention

0:03:320:03:35

and ponies can be pretty hard work and take a lot of time,

0:03:350:03:38

-can't they, Emily?

-Yeah.

0:03:380:03:40

And what do you need to do?

0:03:400:03:42

I need to muck out the stable.

0:03:420:03:44

You got to feed him fresh water every day.

0:03:440:03:47

That sounds like a long list.

0:03:470:03:49

-Can I help you?

-Yeah.

0:03:490:03:50

OK, see you soon, Charlie.

0:03:500:03:52

Which one's Charlie's stable?

0:03:540:03:56

-That one.

-With all these beautiful signs.

0:03:560:03:59

They're amazing. What do we need to do first?

0:03:590:04:02

Get the clean shavings in.

0:04:020:04:04

That sounds good. I'll get the door.

0:04:040:04:07

That is a lot of shavings, Emily.

0:04:140:04:16

-Does Charlie like a big, comfy bed?

-Yeah.

0:04:160:04:20

-Spread the shavings everywhere like this.

-OK.

-Mix it over.

0:04:200:04:24

Mix it all in, OK. Why do we do this, Emily?

0:04:240:04:27

It makes it very fluffy and deep.

0:04:270:04:30

Charlie's very, very lucky. This is looking great and fluffy.

0:04:300:04:34

What else do we need to do to look after him?

0:04:340:04:37

We need to give him his food.

0:04:370:04:39

That sounds great.

0:04:390:04:40

-Last few pats and shall we go and get his hay nets?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:04:400:04:44

-So where do we hang these, Emily?

-Up on the bars.

-OK.

0:04:470:04:51

-Do the knot tighter.

-How is that looking?

-Yeah.

0:04:510:04:54

We have to make sure Charlie doesn't pull it off.

0:04:540:04:57

-He won't.

-So these are his hay nets?

0:04:570:04:59

-Yeah.

-Is it one of his favourite foods?

-One of them.

0:04:590:05:02

And we have his water over there and we also have a few pony nuts.

0:05:020:05:06

Charlie's stable's looking ready. What else do we need to do?

0:05:060:05:11

-We need to exercise him.

-Shall we go?

-Yeah.

0:05:110:05:15

Woo!

0:05:150:05:16

Emily, I'm so excited I get to ride today.

0:05:170:05:20

-Is this my pony?

-Yes.

-Who is this?

0:05:200:05:23

-Morgan.

-Hi, Morgan, lovely to meet you.

0:05:230:05:26

It's important that horses and ponies have plenty of exercise.

0:05:260:05:30

Charlie has a lovely big field to run around in

0:05:300:05:33

and Emily rides him every day.

0:05:330:05:35

-Walk on, ponies!

-Walk on.

-Come on, Morgan.

-Walk on, Charlie.

0:05:380:05:41

Walk on, boy.

0:05:410:05:42

Walk on.

0:05:460:05:48

And you get to do this every single day?

0:05:500:05:52

Yeah, I go round the field sometimes.

0:05:520:05:55

Does Charlie love it?

0:05:550:05:57

-Yeah.

-What is on the ponies' heads?

0:05:570:06:00

-Bridles.

-OK, and what do we use to control them?

0:06:000:06:03

-The reins.

-And what are we sitting on?

0:06:030:06:06

-A saddle.

-It's very comfy, isn't it?

0:06:060:06:09

Emily, you are so lucky you get to do this every day, it's so much fun.

0:06:090:06:13

It's my favourite thing to do with Charlie.

0:06:130:06:16

I am not surprised, it's amazing.

0:06:160:06:19

-How do we make Charlie go faster?

-"Trot on."

0:06:190:06:21

-Shall we give them a trot?

-Yeah.

-Trot on, come on, go.

0:06:210:06:25

Woo!

0:06:250:06:26

You're so speedy!

0:06:340:06:36

Whoa.

0:06:390:06:41

That was great. Emily, you are such a fantastic rider.

0:06:410:06:45

The ponies have had plenty of exercise

0:06:450:06:47

and we'll get them water, but are we finished looking after Charlie?

0:06:470:06:51

-No.

-What do we need to do?

-Give him a bath.

0:06:510:06:54

Give him a bath?! Is there a bath big enough for a pony?

0:06:540:06:58

-No.

-What will we use instead?

-A hose.

-That sounds great.

0:06:580:07:01

Come on, walk on.

0:07:010:07:02

Sometimes you have to wash ponies with special shampoo,

0:07:130:07:17

but this should only be done every so often.

0:07:170:07:20

-Oh, that looks good.

-And you do his wee hoofs.

-Yeah.

0:07:200:07:24

OK, Emily, so what do we need to do next?

0:07:240:07:27

-He's all hosed down.

-Soap him up.

0:07:270:07:29

That sounds great, I'll turn off the hose.

0:07:290:07:32

-On his back?

-Go on.

0:07:350:07:37

OK. You ready, Charlie?

0:07:370:07:39

Soapy, soapy.

0:07:390:07:41

-Do you want to rub?

-I'll do here.

0:07:410:07:43

-Yeah, and what about down here?

-It feels very nice for him.

0:07:430:07:47

It feels really soft.

0:07:470:07:48

-Do you think this is a bit like a pony massage?

-Yeah.

0:07:480:07:52

-We need to give him a good scrub before we let him dry.

-OK.

0:07:520:07:56

And hose down, boy.

0:07:560:08:00

A hose, a hose, a hose.

0:08:000:08:02

Oh, my goodness, he looks so much cleaner already.

0:08:020:08:05

-So what's next?

-We need to scrape him down.

0:08:050:08:08

Ready, Charlie? Wee!

0:08:110:08:13

That looks great.

0:08:130:08:15

We have to make sure that he's nice and dry, don't we?

0:08:150:08:20

-How's this looking, Emily?

-Good.

0:08:200:08:23

This is a great rug, Emily.

0:08:230:08:25

It keeps Charlie all cosy and warm.

0:08:250:08:28

You do such a good job of taking care of him.

0:08:280:08:31

He's really nice and clean now.

0:08:310:08:33

-What do we do after we take care of our pets?

-Wash our hands.

0:08:330:08:36

That's right.

0:08:360:08:37

Looking after ponies is hard work, isn't it?

0:08:450:08:49

-Yeah.

-We definitely deserve this picnic.

0:08:490:08:51

-They're having a picnic too, aren't they?

-Yeah.

0:08:510:08:54

Emily, if your pet pony, Charlie,

0:08:540:08:56

could do absolutely anything in the world, what would he do?

0:08:560:09:01

If my pet could do anything, he would drive a steam train.

0:09:030:09:09

He would wear a driver's hat

0:09:090:09:12

and he would blow the whistle very loudly.

0:09:120:09:17

He would go on a journey round the jungle and drive very fast.

0:09:170:09:23

Then loop the loop like a roller-coaster.

0:09:230:09:26

Emily, I hear that you and Charlie

0:09:320:09:34

do something really special together.

0:09:340:09:36

-What is it?

-We do carriage driving.

0:09:360:09:40

What's that?

0:09:400:09:41

We hitch a cart onto a pony.

0:09:410:09:43

You hitch a cart onto a pony and drive it around?

0:09:430:09:46

-Uh-huh.

-I would love to see that and you know what?

0:09:460:09:49

-I heard there's a show on today. Can we go?

-Yeah.

0:09:490:09:52

-And we'll bring Charlie?

-Yeah.

0:09:520:09:55

Come on, come on, Charlie. You've got some driving to do.

0:09:550:09:59

A horse carriage show is where lots of different horses and ponies

0:10:010:10:06

pull carriages around obstacle courses,

0:10:060:10:09

and it looks like great fun.

0:10:090:10:11

And Charlie is getting ready for Emily and her mum

0:10:110:10:14

to take him on to the course.

0:10:140:10:16

Wow, Emily, this looks great!

0:10:170:10:21

Shall I help you up? Ready? One, two.

0:10:210:10:24

This is fantastic. You sit in the very front?

0:10:240:10:27

-Why do you sit there?

-Cos I drive Charlie.

0:10:270:10:29

You drive Charlie, and your mum helps too, doesn't she?

0:10:290:10:33

-Yeah.

-And where do I sit?

-In the back.

-OK.

0:10:330:10:36

Walk on, Charlie, come on.

0:10:370:10:39

Walk on, Charlie.

0:10:410:10:42

'This is the dressage course.'

0:10:470:10:49

Carriage dressage is when you sit in a carriage

0:10:490:10:52

and steer your horse or pony round the field.

0:10:520:10:55

Emily will be judged on how well she drives Charlie

0:10:550:10:58

and she needs to steer him in lots of different directions.

0:10:580:11:02

-Emily, does Charlie like this?

-Yeah. Look at his mane,

0:11:020:11:05

that means he is happy when he's wagging his tail and his mane.

0:11:050:11:09

Trot on.

0:11:090:11:10

You are doing such a fantastic job, Emily.

0:11:120:11:16

'I steer the pony with the reins.'

0:11:160:11:18

Look at him go.

0:11:220:11:24

Charlie, and whoa.

0:11:240:11:27

Whoa.

0:11:270:11:29

So how do we say thank you to Charlie, Emily?

0:11:290:11:31

-Good boy.

-Good boy.

-Good boy.

0:11:310:11:33

Next, is the cone course.

0:11:350:11:37

You have to steer the carriage through the cones

0:11:390:11:43

and try not to knock the balls off.

0:11:430:11:46

-Where are we going to?

-Five. Five, over here.

0:11:490:11:53

Emily and Charlie have to get round the course as fast as they can.

0:11:580:12:02

-Say canter, Charlie.

-Canter. Go on.

0:12:020:12:05

-Go on, Charlie.

-Go on.

-Well done!

0:12:050:12:08

-Whoa, good boy.

-Well done.

0:12:090:12:11

That was fantastic.

0:12:150:12:18

I can't believe it. Emily, you are an amazing carriage driver.

0:12:190:12:23

I'm so impressed.

0:12:230:12:24

And I think Charlie did a great job too.

0:12:240:12:27

You guys have been so good I even have this special rosette for you

0:12:270:12:31

-because you are number one carriage drivers.

-Thank you, Ferne.

0:12:310:12:34

Thank you for letting me visit.

0:12:340:12:37

I've loved it. And thank you, Charlie.

0:12:370:12:39

-CHILDREN SHOUT:

-My Pet And Me.

0:12:430:12:45

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:12:470:12:49

Hi, Hector.

0:12:490:12:50

-How was your day?

-Oh, it was fantastic.

0:12:500:12:53

I had a great time with my friends, it was really fun.

0:12:530:12:56

Great. I've been catching up on some cuddle time with Hector.

0:12:560:13:00

I can see that. He's loving it.

0:13:000:13:02

Pets are great, but you shouldn't touch an animal

0:13:020:13:05

unless the owner says it's OK first.

0:13:050:13:07

Two pets you CAN play with are ours.

0:13:070:13:10

Go to the website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:100:13:12

What a fantastic time we've had. We just love meeting you and your pets.
