Summer 2014 Gymkhana event

On Friday 22nd August, from 12 noon, our Summer Gymkhana took place. The yard was buzzing with excited children getting their ponies (and horses) ready for the gymkhana races and the outdoor school was transformed into a gymkhana racetrack.

We divided the children into 3 groups depending on riding experience. Group 1 went first competing in five races. Children and ponies really seemed to enjoy themselves with some showing a real competitive spirit! We’d never seen Tiny trot so fast before! Group 2 went next. This group being more experienced where allowed to canter. And finally it was Group 3’s turn. The competition was tough in the Bucket Elimination with Grace & Mattie and Alec & Puzzle coming joint second. Apache was voted “Pony of the Day” as overall he was placed in the most number of races!

All the children and ponies had a great, fun filled day!
