There are many benefits to riding ponies but this is not one I was expecting.
My riding club held its AGM and annual awards show last week. I went along expecting a fun evening but not any awards – an Exmoor pony doesn’t normally win enough points to compete with the blood horses!
I had no idea there was an prize for adults riding ponies so I was very surprised and absolutely thrilled when I won it. I’ve never received an annual award before and it was a wonderful feeling. I am so proud of Galahad.
I had a great evening and came away enthused about working hard next year – which is really the whole point.
