Pony club young­sters en­joy their Hal­lowe’en fes­tiv­i­ties

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AR­GYLL South’s Hal­lowe’en rally at the Rid­ing’s Cool arena got off to a spooky start with a num­ber of scary pony and rider cos­tumes, writes Emily Jami­son.

The rally be­gan with a pa­rade which was won by Rory Shaw on Libby, who was dressed as Harry Pot­ter, and Frazer Pren­tice with Fire­fly, who was dressed as a devil.

The morn­ing com­pe­ti­tion was the witch’s quest handy pony chal­lenge which in­cluded a witch’s wash­ing line and a green slime spi­der gate, with the young rid­ers us­ing their skills to weave around the course as fast as they could.

The af­ter­noon games, or­gan­ised by Sheila MacCal­lum, had ponies and rid­ers rac­ing up and down the arena chew­ing marsh­mal­lows, bal­anc­ing ap­ples be­hind their sad­dles and fi­nally en­joy­ing a race su­per­vised by Pony Club district com­mis­sioner Lu Boase.

Or­gan­is­ers would like to thank Ulla and Steve for pro­duc­ing an ex­cel­lent lunch of soup, rolls and home­bak­ing.

Thanks also go to Mairi Hen­der­son and the Brails­ford fam­ily for mak­ing the day a success.

Fol­low­ing the can­cel­la­tion of the win­ter points com­pe­ti­tion due to flood­ing, the com­pe­ti­tion will now take place in early De­cem­ber at Tar­bert arena.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the com­pe­ti­tion or any­one wish­ing to join the pony club, go to the South Ar­gyll Pony Club’s Face­book page.
