Horseshoe Point Pony Club goes to competition
Fun was the name of the game and for sure it can be said
that this aim was achieved. What was the cause of this excitement? It was
the first gymkhana and jumping competition between the Horseshoe Point
Branch of the Pony Club and the Garden City Polo Branch of the Pony Club.
Horseshoe Point four-person team won 22 rosettes between them.
Sally Jones who is also the district commissioner for
Thailand runs the Horseshoe Point Branch. The two branches decided to
challenge one another to a series of competitions, the first one being
hosted at Garden City Polo, Bang-Na recently.
Months of preparation involving the ponies and riders
followed and then the day before the competition the riders in the team met
to clean the saddles and bridles plus shampoo their ponies. The next morning
Pikachu, Raspberry, Koko and Mojo were loaded into the horsebox at the crack
of dawn to start their slow journey towards Bangkok with their riders
following a few hours later.
The months of practicing paid off as the members had
tremendous pleasure in playing the gymkhana games such as the bending race,
which sees the rider controlling their pony in and out of cones. The egg and
spoon race demonstrates skill on horseback as the rider not only controls
their pony but also balances an egg on a spoon at the same time at speed.
Musical sacks proved to be the most exciting game with a tremendous contest
between two riders from both clubs who reached the last two competitors.
Both riders showed fighting spirit to win the game in true Pony Club style.
The Horseshoe Point four-person team won 22 rosettes
between them and many for first place creating many memorable moments.
In the afternoon there was a jumping competition
involving the Pony Club member who could jump the highest taking first
place. The winner was a deaf rider from the Horseshoe Point Branch, who
jumped the highest on the smallest pony, Koko; together they cleared 80 cm.
Above all, fun, skill, determination and safety were the
name of the game. The Horseshoe Point Branch members returned home
victorious and happy. The return competition is scheduled later in the year,
of which the Horseshoe Point Branch will practice thoroughly once again.
The Pony Club is open to young people up to 21 years of age and anyone
interested in joining can contact Sally Jones at the International Riding
School at Horseshoe Point on 038 735050 ext: 4016 or Ext 4017.

time being, a pristine beach.
