October half term saw the end of our 2012 season, a year of wet, wet and more wet! Horses are now settled into their winter homes including Hartpury and Holme Lacy colleges and a few lucky private homes.
End of the Season
2012 said a fond farewell and good luck to a few of our fabulous horses as they start afresh in new loving homes. We couldn’t be totally selfish and keep all the best ones to ourselves so we allowed a few wonderful people the opportunity to have as much fun as we have with some incredible horses.
Our annual staff day out to Rhossili Bay on the Gower was much fun – reminding us all of how fantastic is it to have a day out on horseback! Lucky ponies enjoyed it too, especially our golden oldie.. Murphy.
International Supreme Champions
Our very own Kelly and Tom’s homebred gelding, Llanthony Erehwon, take the ultimate accolade being named the best trekking horse in the world 2012. As if this wasn’t celebration enough we also took home International Reserve Supreme with Katie riding another of Tom’s homebred horses, Llanthony Lady Krayaani. Bean and L’aani are both grandchildren of the incredible Penny. Well done all involved!
The day of the local show is approaching, Saturday 4th Aug 2012, fingers crossed for some dry weather!
Fun for all the family on the show’s 50th celebrations, for more info please visit their website www.llanthonyshow.co.uk
Please note that there will be no trekking that day as we will be competing for title of “Best Trekking Pony”
