Quiz Round 8 – Fitness
Quiz Round 8 is all about ‘Getting your Horse of Pony Fit’ which is very relevant for those of you who have not been able to ride as much as usual during ‘Lock Down’ but also may be valuable knowledge if ever you have to start riding a horse or pony that has had some time off due to injury or illness. Round 8 of the Quiz is attached to this email

Our quiz experts are getting very good and this week three members got all answers correct This was a very difficult round that required some research into Equine Diseases so well done to – Isla L, Liv and Merri – 5 points awarded to each of you

Quiz Round 4
We have a few members who are really enjoying the Quiz Questions – especially the more difficult rounds!
