YARD NEWSFeb Newsletter
This month we welcome two new horses to the Riding School – beautiful creamy Bailey and super bay Rocky.  We hope they settle well and will be working in the School soon.
We also welcome back Shea, Rebecca Long’s horse.

PONY CLUB CENTRE NEWS
We have a busy schedule of rallies for the Spring Term.  The Pony Clubbers will be starting Skill at Arms, honing their Gymkhana, Handy Pony and Jumping skills, focusing their badge work on Pony Behaviour and Care of the Foot.  There will be a hot shoeing demonstration by farrier Matt Pinney, and practice sessions for the Musical Riders + lots of other activities.

Mark your diaries!
We will be holding an Easter Show this year – on Monday 6 April 2015 – there will be a range of competitions for horse and rider (and possibly dogs!) of all abilities to enter.  Details to follow.
