On holiday in Clwyd

Five riders, Neil, Chris, Jo P, Jo W and Matthew have returned to the Clwyd Special Riding Centre for their 2nd year last Thursday.  Once again the parents have provided the backroom support of refreshments with a couple also helping with the riding.  They are joined by our 2 instructors, Karen and Pat and a few of our hardy volunteers who have been keeping everything crossed for some good weather.

On Friday Karen said, “Can’t believe it’s end of day 2 already. It’s been a very happy return, with new ponies, other than Jo P who was delighted to renew her partnership with Homer.

Neil and coloured ride and drive Harvey bonded instantly. Jo W enjoys Ben’s comfortable paces,  Matthew is riding George, a veteran of Hartpury champs and Chris is very confident on Marsala.

We use the hydraulic platform, which makes mounting so much easier. We definitely need one!   Fantastic food at (very) regular intervals thanks to Sandra and team.  We watched the farrier shoeing the ponies this morning.  Best mane and tail competition tomorrow then pub supper……and another of Matt’s impromptu speeches!”

Hear what they have been up to on the last few days soon …
