Stroud Pony Club’s ribbon day

It was with polished ponies and radiant riders that Stroud Pony Club trotted into the first event for Ribbon Day at Stroud Showground recently.

The weather was cool and the showground dry for classes such as best presented, best rider and best horse with barrel racing and other games wrapping up the day.

Rosemary Laing volunteered her time to act as official judge for the end of year pony club event.

The young riders were pleased to not only receive ribbons for their efforts in each class but Rosemary also spent time sharing her knowledge and experience with each rider.

Club president Tim Boland was proud of all the riders ranging in ages from four through to fourteen.

“The riders demonstrated real camaraderie and sportsmanship throughout the day with lots of cheering, assisting the younger riders and learning from each other,” he said.

“The day gave the children, many of them in their first or send year of pony club, a great experience of competition in a safe and friendly environment.”
