The course designed by Lloyd Hunt rode brilliantly over undulating country and had some wonderful jumps that tested the riders up to one metre. Fred Bergendorff and Emma Atkins gave some great instruction and the two hour time slot was enough to give the course an excellent try.

All the children were beautifully behaved from our youngest members to our eldest and hopefully they all learnt a little something.Some children are very near to having 14 badges which earns them a Gold Achievement badge.  Please let Leti Oyamburu know should you have any gaps in your badges and we will try and get something organised.Don’t forget that the Mini Pet Achievement badge can be done from home and only entails keeping a month’s diary on your favourite pet which cannot be a pony.
