Fun Day 2011

23 June 2011

in Fun Day

Our riders once again put on a fantastic show at Fun Day on 23rd June helped of course by our well behaved ponies! Max riding Meg and Mathew on Shadow were well deserved winners of the senior and junior classes. Chris rode very confidently and came a close 2nd in the seniors with Jo W a creditable 3rd. Neil collected 4th and Jo P was equal 5th. Our Group dominated the junior class with George coming a close 2nd behind Mathew. Charlotte, who has formed a great partnership with Shadow came 3rd and Holly collected a 5th rosette

Our riders also won rosettes in the gymkhana and Chris, Neil, George and Charlotte also proved their knowledge of grooming & looking after ponies by taking part in the stable management quiz. It was lovely to welcome along so many parents and supporters to share in the achievement and enjoyment of the riders Thanks go to all the helpers who enabled the riders to have such fun, not just on the day but practicing beforehand, tack cleaning and shampooing the ponies. A great team effort!!

Shortly after this lovely day, we said ‘au revoir’ to Max who has gone to study in America for a year as part of his university course. However, not before he was presented the new ‘Hughes’ Award for the rider with fortitude and perseverance.
