Lots of family and friends came to watch our last ride of the term. The children gave a wonderful display of their riding skills and were very excited to have an audience!
Certificates, rosettes and awards were given out to all the riders to recognise their achievements throughout the year. Four children received their ‘Towards Independence – Animal Care’ ASDAN awards.
Our progress shield was awarded this year to a boy who had refused to get off the bus for the first few weeks of the year and who gradually learnt how much more fun it is to be sitting on a pony! Step by step he moved from mounting right next to the bus to walking confidently into the indoor school and mounting with very little help. By the end of term he had started to use his reins – what a star!
Many thanks to our instructors and all the volunteers who have helped us have such a successful year.
