This club takes place every Friday afternoon during golden time. Pupils are driven by our school minibus to the Coloured Cob Equestrian centre in Cresswell. They have a half hour riding lesson and then another half hour of grooming and classroom based work. Children that attend the club will be able to earn rosettes and badges and we are hoping that some of them will become natural leaders and be able to help teach other children.
This half term it is the year 3/4 children that are lucky enough to have the chance to join the pony club. We take 15 pupils every week and they get to learn how to handle and groom the horses. Also they learn about the countryside and the code. Best bit of all they get to ride the ponies and horses.
Today was the final session for our year 3 pupils and they all took part in a mini Gymkana style event. Afterwards they all received their rosettes.
