Times are hard for everyone across the country, and we are no different. Without lessons running we have no income, but still have all our horses and ponies to care for, feed, shoe and medicate. We have some people already come forward wanting to help out with the care of our animals. To those we say a very big thank you. If you would like to support us by sponsoring your favourite pony, then please email usfor more information on how to do so. We look forward to welcoming you back to South Farm in the not too distant future.
Christmas Holidays We have had a great time over Christmas and we hope that you did as well. We have had day courses with lots being learnt by all who came. We had a tinsel trek were the ponies where dressed up in tinsel! We also had another dressage competition with points being added to our table! To all who competed you all looked very smart and did a brilliant job with the turnout of the horses. A huge thank you to our external judge for coming in to judge the day for us. Keep an eye out for the next competition for a chance to add more points and climb the leader board!
October Half Term There was lots learnt at our PC training day this half term with some more badges achieved and some E tests passed. Well done to all who got their E test! We also had loads of fun with our gymkhana games we hope all of you who joined us for it had as much fun as we did!
Summer Holidays We have had great fun over the summer and we hope that all of you who took part in our events had a wonderful time too!
We had great success with our first in-house Pony Club Rallies with an outside instructor coming in to teach for the 3 days. There was lots learnt and lots of fun had by all.
On Wednesday the 21st August we held a dressage competition for all abilities, the ponies all looked amazing having been plaited up and the riders all looked very smart. Huge thanks must go to our external judge and to the whole team who worked very hard to allow the afternoon to run smoothly. Overall it was a brilliant day with lots of rosettes won!
On Thursday the 29th of August we put on a clear round show jumping event. The riders have boosted their jumping confidence tremendously, all coming away with a rosette!
There have been day courses running throughout the holidays with lots of you joining us to learn about pony care and to improve your riding.

May Half Term
We had a fantastic half term with loads of fun had by all who took part in our events! With clear round show jumping, gymkhana games, dressage lessons and day courses it was a jam-packed week, some of our helpers even had a go at 'Chase me Charlie'! We hope everyone had as much fun as we did and that everybody learnt lots over the week! To avoid missing out on any of our other activities make sure to book in early.
