A very warm welcome to South Shropshire Hunt Pony Club

Great fun ride at Eaton Mascott on the last Sunday of April –  really well organised, great route and superb weather – what more could we ask!

Well done to our teams at the Rodbaston Triangular Competition at the beginning of April. They came fourth and second in Classes 7 and 8. Not a bad start to the season.

There’s quite a bit going on over the next few weeks. For total beginners, serious learners, people who want to prepare for the One Day Event, and those who just want a bit of sociable fun. Here are some dates to take you up to the end of May half term. We’ll be adding some more XC sessions at Berriewood in evenings and at weekends once the course is open in June. We’ll let you know when they are.

Big thanks to Louise Downes and Juliet Orme for organising the Christmas Rally and to Kate and Sharon, Mums and Dads and everyone who came along. We had some great costumes, twinkly sparkly horseshoes, cute dogs, sprouts, mince pies, mulled wine and cup cakes. It was great fun. Here we all are!

Remember these sunny days?!

The cross country and flatwork rally on Sun 19 October worked well and was great fun. We packed so much into just a few hours. Thank you Jonquil and Sharon for the instruction.  And the show jumping rally on Monday of half term was really helpful – well done in particular to Kate Ireland for making such progress. Thank you this time to Vanessa for instructing.

We are continuing to heavily subsidise the rallies this Autumn and Winter so do take advantage of the deal the club days offer. See Programme of events section in the menu on the left. 

And once again thank you to everyone who has helped our club this year, from committee members to parents to friends and grandparents!  It really is a team effort.
