Centre Wins Top spot at the Area 5 Quiz

Aberconwy hosted the Area 5 Quiz on March 17th in Eglwysbach village hall.  It was a very exciting afternoon as the points were so close.  Running totals were given out after every few rounds which added to the atmosphere.  Thank you to Aberconwy Committee and to the scorers who produced the final results very quickly inspite  of having to do a recount because the points were so close.

Horse & Pony Care Competition

This year Aberconwy Pony Club hosted the Blue Cross Horse and Pony Care Competition for the first time. The weather was certainly on our side and we all enjoyed the beautiful day at Dee Farm.

The event was well supported with

  • 11 teams in the new Mini section
  • 11 teams in the Junior section and
  • 3 teams in the senior section.

It was a busy day with all hands-on deck to enable the smooth running of the day.

The competition consisted of 4 stations testing the members Stable Management knowledge. Everyone worked well in their teams and the assessors were impressed with everyone’s knowledge, with only a few points between first place and the other teams.

We were then lucky enough to see a demonstration by National Dressage champion Helen Dutton, who demonstrated what you can achieve, being a former pony club member with hard work and determination.

We would like to thank everyone for their help and support to enable us to run such a successful day.
