90th Anniversary of The Pony Club – Saturday 3rd August 2019.

What a fabulous day for all past and present members.

As one of the oldest branches of The Pony Club, we were delighted that Anna Turner, Lord Lieutenant for Shropshire, accepted our invitation to be our Guest of Honour for the day.  The day began with a welcoming speeches from Rory, Anna and our President, Robert Lawrence.   The musical ride then followed on to much applause.  A mixture of cold salmon and salads and barbeque was eaten by over 120members and guests.  A mixture of dismounted games were then enjoyed by all our members and siblings and a surprise appearance by the 2012 Grand National Winner Neptune Colonges delighted everybody.  He was so good and so patient with all the children.  The day concluded with a show jumping competition.  Thank you to all those who helped make this day so special for our branch and The Pony Club
