Tack & Turnout Competition

The Riding School Horses and Ponies began their Christmas holidays on Christmas Eve and over the festive period many of them were looked after and given a little extra TLC by riding school patrons who took the opportunity to have a horse for the holidays.  Lessons commenced again on 2nd January, so New Year’s Day was an opportune day to have a special tack and turnout competition for these temporary owners.
