With the summer over and the winter setting in we have lots to look forward to and some great summer memories. Here are a few of our favourite photos from this Summer. Apologies if your son daughter is not on any of them I have posted as many as the page will allow.

Points Show Winners

Huge congratulations to our points show winners. These young ladies have gained the most points competing over the summer at our monthly points shows. The competition this year has been incredibly strong and only a few points separate not only the placings on the day of the shows but the the points champions.

Katie Blackwell  (over 12's)

Amelia Webb (over 8's)

Lily Austin (under 8's)

Success for Rolo and Hubert 

Many of you stroke and chat to Rolo, Hubert and Ovie but don't often see them being ridden so I thought it would be nice to let you know how they have been doing. 

Hubert is only 4 and has had a fantastic start to his ridden career. He was placed at Gatcombe Horse Trials Young Event Horse class...

Holiday Club and Loaning

With summer fast approaching I am sure you are all making plans for the summer holidays. My best childhood memories were my days spent at the stables with my pony and friends. From the age of 10 I would cycle to my pony at the crack of dawn and stay there until early evening. Unfortunately things have changed slightly and I for one wouldn't be happy letting my boys cycle along a main road at the age of 10. My parents being non horsey were also oblivious to the fact that riding and messing about with ponies is potentially dangerous. I obviously survived though and wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I do want the children that ride with us to have the same experiences and our holiday club and loaning a pony is a great way for kids to spend time at the stables and keep safe. Our ponies don't often become available for loan but shortly we will have two ponies available. Loaners can attend on a Thurs, Fri and Sun and supervision will be available on these three d...

A huge thank you to all out members and friends who donated presents for the Santa's Grotto. Also thank you to all our members who came in to help and join in the festive fun. Some of you may have seen our Facebook post about the wonderful man Steve Sullivan, who Zoe and I met in B&Q. We had gone in to get MDF to make candy sticks for the grotto, we were struggling loading the huge sheet of wood into the horse box when a kind man asked if we needed any help. To cut a long story short when we got chatting to him it turned out his daughter went to Derian House and he ended up making the candy sticks in B&Q car park. It was a magical experience and Zoe and I felt like we were part of a feel good Christmas movie. We also must say thank you to Lorraine Blockley who made the most amazing cakes, to Carver's Christmas trees (turn opposite carpark to Cuerden Park off Lancaster Lane) for fabulous Christmas trees. To my good friends Fred and Carmen, think you may guess what part they played! Also...

Maybe you've been thinking of loaning a pony and would like a trial week, well now is your chance. Loaning a pony is a big commitment so you need to be sure that its something you really want to do. If you are desperate to loan a pony but can't afford our Platinum membership then why not share a pony with a friend to reduce costs. If you would like to share a Platinum membership then let us know and we will see if there is someone you could pair up with. All we ask is that between you , you give your pony the best love and care you can.
