NOVEMBER 2021  

We traditionally hold an Open Ribbon Day in November. The emphasis is on FUN and all levels of riders are welcome. We have 3-year-old riders on 9hh ponies right through to ‘masters’ in the vintage ring. Whatever your level, we have a class to suit you and your mount.  We have great spot prizes from local business too. 

The exact date of the 2021 event will be posted at the beginning of the season.
