Dina came into my life eight years ago when the idea of owning my own pony or even keeping up with riding seemed impossible due to my financial circumstances.
A friend of mine invited me to hack out with her and asked a lady at her yard if she could borrow her cheeky brown welsh mare.
I instantly fell in love with this Dina! Luckily for me, her owner was looking for someone to help with exercising her, so at the age of 15, i began going up to the yard everyday after school.
Dins's extremely supportive owner helped me fulfil my dream of owning a pony and even took me to shows and cross country lessons.
Dina was a character but, despite her stubbornness, was a real once in a lifetime pony who stayed with me through my adolescence.
Unfortunately, we lost Dina in a freak field accident at the beginning of February, something we are all trying to come to terms with.
I wanted to make something special to remember Dina for both her owner and I. Giving her the Circle of Friendship Necklace was the most beautiful way I could have ever said the biggest of thanks yous.
I am in love with my bracelet and will continue to take dina with me wherever life takes me next.
Thank you again for your service, the pieces of jewellery are stunning and so special.
