Ali Pearson, our chief instructor, organised a session of mounted games at World Horse Welfare on December 22nd to make up for not being able to hold the Tinsel Ride, and although several children booked in were unable to come at the last minute because of illness, the other members turned up with their ponies for some good fun. We only had the venue for an hour but that was plenty of time as Ali was well organised and was assisted by Beth Storey and Georgia Watson, both looking very seasonal, dressed in their matching Santa coats and hats. Taking part were Charlotte and Lucy Steel, Abigail Elvidge, Amy Leigh Wing, Daisy O'Brien, Becky Sayer and Mia Fletcher, who could not bring her pony so competed on foot. The group was split into 2 teams with Beth and Georgia each keeping an eye on a team and helping out in whatever way was necessary. Another on-foot extra – Archie- somebody's brother and a very good competitor, also joined in and had a great time. Some riders had decorated themselves and their mounts with a generous show of tinsel and glitter etc, while others had completely dressed up their ponies and themselves. Great stuff all of you!
Huge congratulations go to 4 of our members who passed their Pony Club Lunge test recently - Beth Storey, Georgia Watson, Hattie Garner and Lauren Marsh were all examined by Mrs Theobald of Newton Hall Equestrian Center and passed with flying colours. Thanks go to TCPC instructor Tracy Allin Baker who helped prepare Beth and Georgia.
